Martial Arts Business
In 2005, Travis opened his school, Team Tooke Mixed Martial Arts Academy in his fathers garage. With no formal education or business experience, and no students or money, he slowly began to build what would become one of the most successful Jiu-jitsu schools in Texas. Jiu-jitsu and Life: Lessons Learned On and Off the Mat takes the reader on Travis’ journey from teenage white belt to 4th degree black belt and successful business owner. The book is entertaining, funny, vulnerable and motivating. A great read for all martial artists and entrepreneurs, Jiu jitsu and Life is now available on Amazon!
