First, A Note From Our Instructor:

BJJ Fort Worth

Hi, my name is Donnie Bedore, owner of Tx Black Belt Academy in Fort Worth, TX. I want to take a moment to welcome you to our website and to say THANK YOU for considering our BJJ Fort Worth Classes. I’ve seen so many different kinds of people come through our doors – from the very overweight to the ultra-shy. We’ve had people start class because they want to be prepared if they need to defend themselves, and even people who start class because they’ve already been victims of a violent attack. The thing that ties all of these people together is that I’ve seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them find their inner strength, peace, and confidence.


We’ve seen people overcome serious personal challenges like losing significant weight, we’ve seen people feel supported by meeting and interacting with other people who share their challenges, and we regularly see people gaining unreal confidence not just in their ability to defend themselves, but in their everyday lives.


So, what I’ll do on this page is tell you a little about what our focus is in our classes, and what methods we use to achieve our results. Take a look at what we do, and see if our philosophy on the Jiu Jitsu classes lines up with your goals, and if what we teach would be beneficial in your life.


Again, THANK YOU for considering Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – for our instructors and students it’s been one of the best things they’ve ever done, and I think it’s possible that it could be the same for you.


Work Pressure, Family Needs, Health Concerns, Time Demands…

Sound Familiar?


Self Defense isn’t just physical. It’s also mental, spiritual and emotional. Living your life the way you want isn’t always easy.When we first meet a new student at our school, the signs of daily life in the 21st Century are usually pretty (painfully) obvious:


Focus Issues
Having trouble focusing isn’t just a “kid thing”. The ability to hone in on and complete a task is vital for our work success, family success, and life success. In our Jiu Jitsu classes, you’ll gain laser sharp focus that you’ll take everywhere you go.



Lack of Social Interaction
We’re humans – we’re not supposed to be shut up in a cubicle all day, only to come home and turn on the TV (then go to bed and repeat the cycle again and again). Being in class with other people just like you, focused on improving themselves and reaching towards their best is absolutely invaluable to your own personal journey.



Lack of Motivation
You can’t just sign up at a big box gym and expect to achieve the kinds of results you truly want. You could hire a personal trainer for $100’s/hr, or you could join a class where you’re driven by not just your own motivation, but by your friends, instructors, and the culture of success that we foster in our school.

Lack of Confidence
As we say in our classes, Confidence is Cultivated. The way you look affects the way you feel, and the way you feel affects every area of your life. If you FEEL strong, you will ACT like you’re strong, and that Confidence will be unmistakeable.

Lack of Flexibility
It’s not like you want to look like a gymnast or something, but as time wears on, our flexibility wanes. This means you don’t move as well, you get injured more easily, and when you DO try to exercise, it feels almost impossible. But after only a few weeks of Jiu Jitsu Classes, you’ll literally feel your muscles relaxing. It can totally change the way you move through your day.



Excessive Weight
As you get older it gets harder and harder to keep your body in good shape. It’s not that you don’t want to, but stress, eating on the go, and life itself starts to show through excessive fat on your hips, thighs, and arms. You CAN get rid of it. It’ll take work, but you CAN.


But, There Is Hope!

We’ve specifically designed our classes to help you break through to new levels of health and happiness. You’ll be able to work through your daily challenges with strength, focus, and poise (even if you’re never “attacked”).

Finally Achieve the Results You’ve Always Wanted

Whether Your Current Routine Isn’t Working, Or If You Haven’t Had a Workout Routine In Years



Physical Strength
A Healthy body is a Strong body. So many people just want to “lose weight”, but they don’t realize that that requires building muscle. More muscle means you’ll burn more calories (even when resting), be more mobile, and look better.

The Ability to Defend Yourself Mentally, Emotionally AND Physically
If you ever need to, you will absolutely be able to defend yourself physically. The Jiu Jitsu moves you’ll learn in class will arm you with a sense of security that our students get to carry with them everywhere they go. We sincerely hope you never have to use it; but if you do, you’ll be ready.



Soaring Self Esteem
One of the most important things you’ll earn in our classes is a tremendously positive sense of self. But wait, this is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class right? Right, but low Self Esteem, if we’re being honest, eats away at us deep, deep inside. It isn’t just about how you LOOK, it’s about how you FEEL. Doing something like Jiu Jitsu will put you on a path to feeling your BEST.


You’ll be able to fend off the emotional onslaught of judgment from others, set appropriate boundaries in your work and personal life, and eventually, through conquering our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes, know that you’ve conquered yourself.


Jiu Jitsu Classes

Group Support
The value of working through your challenges with a group of peers who are all focused on the same goals cannot be overstated. You WILL be held accountable, and this time you WILL achieve your goals. We (the instructors and other members) won’t let you shy away form the things you want to accomplish; we’ll be there every step of the way.


Sounds Great…But How?

How? The Answer isn’t rocket science, and honestly, We feel blessed to have discovered it. It’s simple and subtle, but when you see it in person (especially as a parent) It’s almost Magical. “The Answer” solves every one of the issues we mentioned, and more.

Click one of the buttons on this page and we’ll share “The Answer” with you, plus show you our Schedule and Trial offer.

Our Classes Blend Fitness with Self Defense, And That’s Important!

The reality is that you can’t really separate the two. If you want to be able to defend yourself and you do!, then you need to be in good shape.Now, you do NOT have to be in good shape to start! That’s what we do – help normal people like you improve themselves everyday.

A “Group Sport” With An Individual Focus

You’ll get to interact and work with other people who share your same goals and challenges, but you won’t be compared to them. This isn’t high school gym class – there’s no “pecking order”. It’s just a group of people working hard to achieve the things they never thought they were capable of. And you belong with them.

Class Reviews from Real Members

We Think It’s Great, But What About Regular Members?


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at TXBBA is a great experience. Professor Bedore is a kind, patient, respectful, and seasoned instructor who not only treats his students like family, but is always willing to coach and mentor at YOUR level to help you develop and grow YOUR personal game. TXBBA also offers several other black/brown belt instructors who are all humble and hungry to share as well! They sponsor in house seminars with high level BJJ/MMA athletes, partner with other academies for NJJA Tournaments, and have even qualified for affiliation with the We Defy Foundation to support training for Veterans. My MBA Professor would say, “It’s not too good to be true, but it’s too good to be free”…and as with any hands-on program, you get with you pay for and are willing to put in. Having trained 3-6 times per week over the past year and participated in instructor training, not only have I lost 43lbs, 6” off my waist, and grown my game exponentially, but I’ve watched my 9 year old and 5 year old twin daughters grow in confidence, assertiveness, capability, accountability, respect, and self-motivation as a result of their dedication to this academy as well. This school is worth the time and investment to become part of the family, whatever your level or goals. One of the best decisions we’ve made for our family.

Frequently Asked Questions


Will I get hit / hurt?
No…..unless you want to! Every student is on their own journey. We have young, strong students who love to take their training way past what most people do. But for the vast majority of our students (95%+), getting hurt isn’t an option (plus it’s not much fun). In our classes, safety is paramount. There’s no more of a chance of you getting hurt here than there is at a gym or jogging down your neighborhood street.


How often do I need to come to class and when are your classes?
Our programs fit into almost any schedule (remember, all of the other students who already take classes with us are super busy too!). We have students who are successful in our program at only one day a week, and we have students who are so addicted to love class that they’re here everyday.

You don’t have to attend everyday, but if you enter your email we’ll send you to the next page where we will show you our schedule and trial offer, and you can decide for yourself. If you have questions about the schedule, there’s a contact for on that page to ask questions.

I haven’t been active in years. Do I need to do anything before enrolling?
No. Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven’t exercised in years, our beginner classes are perfect for you. We specifically focus that class on helping students not only learn the basic foundations of martial arts, but on building basic physical endurance, strength and flexibility. Before you know it, you’ll be looking and feeling fantastic.


Can I try before I sign up?
We always start with a Trial Program. It’s really important not only for you to be able to make sure our program will be beneficial, but also for us to be sure we can appropriately meet your goals.

Because this introductory time is so important, and because it’s mandatory for all new students, spaces in our trial program are often very limited. So if you want a space, please be sure to sign up for one! If there are no spaces, we’ll put you on the waiting list.

This Could Be The Best Thing You’ve Ever Done For Yourself!
