Tim will be back in Paris in March 2016. It looks like we’ll have a great three days – this year I’m reaching out to the BJJ community since they have qualities often lacking among the internal arts practitioners (willingness to mix it up, a practical outlook, the capacity to see skill as skill independent of  lineage or ethnicity). If it works we will have  good number of practitioners from different places.

Who is Tim Cartmell?

Let’s spell this out: He also happens to be a third dan BJJ black belt who placed first at the 2003 IBJJF Pan Championship as a brown belt and first at the 2004 IBJJF Pan Championship as a black belt. He teaches BJJ alongside Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida, the most highly decorated BJJ competitor in the world.

Tim practices and teaches ZhaoBao and Sun style Taiji, Shanxi Xingyi, and Gao/Yizong Bagua.

Furthermore, he explains everything in terms of biomechanics. A class with Tim is a chi-free zone. 100% down to earth, no BS, pure quality.


Friday evening – Internal martial arts striking methods 
Biomechanics of power generation – tactics and training methods.
Maximum 11 participants.

Friday evening €35

at Espace Nataraja, 12 rue Hippolyte lebas, 75009, metro Cadet: Notre dame de Lorette

Saturday – Throws and takedowns51APAWJTG4L._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_
Make the most of Tim’s deep knowledge of the use of body alignment principles to make throws efficient and even effortless. Great for standup fighters, BJJ practitioners who know they need work in this area, and students of internal arts.
(Tim is the author of the book ‘Effortless combat throws’ considered a classic by many)

Sunday – BJJ
Sunday will build on from Saturday with follow ups from some of the throws practised on Saturday.
Excellent teachers bring something special to their arts. Tim brings a very clear systematic approach to teaching and a sophisticated understanding of body use enriched by 10+ years he spent studying in China and Taiwan and refined by over 20 years of BJJ practice.
Beginners will benefit from his systematic, clear and graspable explanations. More advanced practitioners will benefit from his subtle understanding of body use and long experience.

Weekend: €55/day €85 two days

at 15 rue Gabriel Faure Villeneuve la Garenne 92390 –  a little to the North of Paris, reachable by metro, RER and tram

Stage avec Tim Cartmell Paris 4-6 mars 2016

Qui est Tim Cartmell? (English below)

Ceinture noire 3ième dan de JJB, Tim est arrivé premier au championnat de l’IBJJ, en 2003 en ceinture marron, premier en 2004 en ceinture noire.
Tim enseigne le JJB aux côtés de Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida, au sein de Ace Jiujutsu (Orange county, California).

Avant de commencer le JJB il y a 20 ans, Tim a étudié les arts martiaux pendant 10 ans en Chine et Taiwan. Il pratique et enseigne le Taiji style ZhaoBao, le Taiji style Sun, le Xingyi du Shanxi et le Bagua Gao/Yizong.

Enfin, et peut être surtout, les explications de Tim sont basées sur la biomécanique. Pas de place pour le Qi/Chi ici! Que du concret et pas de blabla!

• Vendredi Soir (de 19H à 22H) : Méthodes de frappe des arts martiaux internes Taijia, Bagua et Xingyi – biomécanique et génération de puissance – tactique et méthodes d’entrainement.

• Samedi : Projections et Amenés au Sol : Tirez le meilleur parti des grandes connaissances de Tim concernant les principes d’alignement du corps, permettant de rendre les projections plus efficaces et sans efforts (“effortless throws”).

• Dimanche : JJB et techniques au sol (dans la continuité du travail de projection de samedi).

samedi dimanche à at 15 rue Gabriel Faure Villeneuve la Garenne 92390

Les excellents professeurs amènent tous quelque chose de spécial à leur art.

Bénéficiez des années de pratique ainsi que de la finesse et compréhension de la biomécanique acquise par Tim.
