The mission of Tsunami Southern Tribes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to offer the highest level of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training in a safe, positive and enjoyable atmosphere.

We believe that instructors are “servant leaders”, whose role is to guide and encourage the students for whom they work, so that they may effectively pursue their own individual goals in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We recognize that in order to lead effectively, instructors must act at all times with integrity and with the welfare of the student utmost in mind.

We respect the fact that each and every member of the Tsunami family is unique and contributes a vital part to the collective experience which is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team. As such, we openly and unreservedly welcome any and all students, from a wide diversity of backgrounds, who sincerely wish to learn the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
