Before starting US Army's Basic Officer Leadership Course at Fort Sam Houston, TX. I spent a period of time learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Evolution Martial Arts (EMA). BJJ allowed me to turn around from stressful elements that Suicide Prevention Specialists like me navigate on daily basis. At first, like most novices I relied on pure strength disregarding technique in the heat of battle on the mat. Evolution's instructors--Dante J. Herrera and Riki Tarika instilled most valuable lesson for success; calm down relax! Needless to say both display great patience giving instruction as well as provide a safe, fun and relaxing learning environment. Moving forward, I highly recommend EMA, which is affiliated to Capital MMA. Given EMA's available resources such as Royce Gracie credibility world class BJJ instruction, anyone can achieve their goals here utilizing patience and strong desire to improve connection of body mind and spirit.
