@tigermuaythai gets another #BJJ black belt tomorrow

BOOM…I remember first meeting Scott Tannenbaum in 2003 while I was training at the Gracie Barra Phoenix academy, occasionally Scott would stop into the academy for some cross training.

Having lived in California he got an opportunity to train extensively with Rigan Machado, Royce Gracie, Rickson Gracie, and MMA fighters like Fabiano Iha, Chris Brennan, Jeremy Williams, and Eric Paulson.

Eventually earning his black belt from World Renowned BJJ Coach Rigan Machado–Professor Tannebaum competed in ‘MMA’ back when it was known as ‘NHB’.  Currently a second Degree Black Belt in BJJ, Scott runs the TNT Mixed Martial Arts academy in Arizona, and will be joining myself  and European Grappling sensaiton Tomasz ‘Pajak’ Stasiak of Polan as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts training at Tiger Muay Thai.

As if 3 BJJ Black Belts wasn’t enough quality training partners—>We also have BJJ Brown Belts Jason Saggo–JJ Amrose–and Rafael Lopes training at the gym…along side M-1 World Champion Yasubey Enomoto and BJJ Purple Belt Wiktor Svensson….*BOOM*—talk about some stacked training :)
