About Paul Tom’s Academy

Professor Paul Tom is a 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and has become widely known for the contributions he has made in training security personnel, police officers, FBI, military, and families of students throughout the state of Utah, while he has taught for over 20 years.

He has been inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame and received various other awards while receiving attention from multiple media outlets for his expertise in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

Paul got into martial arts while he was still young, and competed in several Karate tournaments as he trained for years. It wasn’t until Paul became a father that he decided to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and he has taught self-defense ever since.

Paul loves enabling his students to be successful in situations when they might be considered underdogs and it is well-known that Professor Paul Tom’s students should be taken seriously.
