Our Story

DFW Submission Grappling was founded by the Josh's in March of 2017.  Shortly after meeting we wanted to have a school that we could call our own.  Our backgrounds in BJJ had led us to a point that we wanted to start teaching and growing personally.  We both work our regular jobs and do this because it is our passion.  There is nothing more exciting than seeing someone progress in their confidence, skills, and abilities.  This is a place to come and test yourself,  I promise, in the end you will be better for it. 

Why be average when you can be Amazing!

Joshua Smith

   Started BJJ in 2006 with North Texas Mixed Martial Arts in Highland Village,TX.  This was after a diverse athletic resume that included D3 Football and High-school Wrestling.  The skills that he learned in these sports transferred well to BJJ and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).  As a MMA fighter Josh was 6-2 (2-2 Pro).  Some of these highlights include 4 TKO's and 2 wins by decision, one of which was for Bellator MMA.   He earned his black belt in 2015 from Yousef Alirezi from Star Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Carrolton, TX.  

  While teaching Joshua hopes to instill in his students the same values that his coaches drove into him as a kid.  Those values are to work harder than your opponents, take ownership of your mistakes,and continually work to get better everyday.
