About Us

Kyle and Tammy are a husband and wife team, and are equal partners in Double Phoenix Academy.  When they met, their first conversation was about grappling!  Kyle had a friend who had been showing him a few introductory moves informally in his garage, and Tammy was a fan of grappling martial arts, but never had hopes of every being anything more than a spectator when she first met Kyle.   They hit it off, and quickly signed up at a local bjj school, and that's where the serious training began.  After a while, they started to help new students during their fist class at their gym and got a taste of what it felt like share their passion for Jiu-jitsu.  They both knew that they loved teaching and knew that one day, they wanted to open their own school.  They knew that no matter what, they wanted to train for the rest of their lives and wrote a list of their long term goals- owning their own school was on the top of the list!  They could not be happier because every day, the get to live out their dream and their passion by helping others to learn this amazing Martial art!

Why the Name Double Phoenix?

Coach Tammy and Coach Kyle both know what it means to go through adversity and transform the challenge into something positive. 

 

They feel that the discipline of martial arts is, in a large way, about perseverance through difficult situations.  Most people have experienced challenges in which they need to be strong and keep moving forward. 

 

The Phoenix is a symbol of rebirth,  rising anew from ashes with powerful energy.  We believe that the journey of the Phoenix can be compared to the cylical nature of life, and all of the many journeys therein. 

 

Earning a black belt in BJJ is often compared to a rebirth: you struggle and reach towards this goal, but when you do finally achieve this, a newer, deeper journey of exploration of ideas and efficient technique begins. 

 

The concept of the phoenix can be seen in many aspects of Jiu Jitsu.  For example, getting caught in a submission, but then learning, adapting, and rising again to come back with a fury, stronger than before mirrors the journey of the Phoenix.

 

Martial arts has always had a connection to Zen concepts, like being mentally present in the moment and understanding things as they are, without delusion.  Being honest with yourself is necessary for growth. 

 

Frankly and fairly acknowledging one's strengths and weaknesses is the only way to address those weaknesses and build a stronger version of yourself.  The name “Double Phoenix” was chosen as a way of capturing the idea of continual re-birth as well as the bond that Kyle and Tammy share, and the energy they want to share with the world.
