About Us

Wildfire Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was opened May 6, 2016 by owner and head instructor Wyatt Tinnen (with a LOT of help) with the mission statement "Building Better Belts".  The idea was to provide an environment where students and instructors alike could advance their training in the martial arts whether they wanted to be a competitor, be prepared for a real life self defense scenario, or simply be better than when they walked through the door.

In June of 2016 Wildfire BJJ joined the Team Rhino Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Association under Professor Keith Owen.  In February of 2022 Keith Owen tragically passed away in Brazil.  Since then, Wildfire Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been a member of the BJJ Globetrotters Association. 

    Wildfire Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu currently operates at 1410 NW Vivion Road, Kansas City, MO in a 1950 sq/ft climate controlled facility with parking, restroom, and shower facilities available on site and is a fully insured and licensed martial arts facility and Kansas City Locally Owned Business.
