Welcome to the Nova Uniao TX-Xtreme MMA Jiu-Jitsu Training Academy in Corpus Christi, Texas. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was perfected by Andre Pederneiras who developed techniques using leverage and timing, rather than strong, explosive techniques found in traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu. Robson Moura has further contributed to the growth of Nova Uniao Jiu-Jitsu by applying the techniques on the mat as well as in life.
We believe that training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu should be practiced in the same way that Nova Uniao Association of jiu jitsu has trained: with consistent and intelligent practice, with instruction that comes directly from Andre Pederneiras himself, with impeccable technique, with constant repetition and with excellent use of leverage and timing versus strength and explosiveness.
We believe in training hard and training smart. Thus, safety and knowing when to “tap” is paramount. Senseless injuries have never made anyone a better Jiu-Jitsu Player! We believe that you should check your ego at the door when training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It’s not if you win, or if you submit the most people in a given training session; it’s if you have learned anything and improved on your own abilities in every training session. Training is for learning and improving your game while helping your training partners get better as well.
We believe that in training Nova Uniao Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you will get out of it in direct proportion to what you put in to it. Commit to training and put the hours in on the mat and you will indeed improve and you will carry yourself accordingly.
We believe that Nova Uniao Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the most complete and effective martial art available. We believe you have come to the right place to learn and train and we believe that you, too, can be a CHAMPION, in all aspects of your life. Most Importantly, we believe in our students.
