Tampa BJJ Marcio Cruz Professional BJJ Team

Born in Chicago, IL, Craig Grams explored many martial arts. He began training in wrestling at age 12. Grappling always seemed natural for him. In 2005, Instructor Craig found a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu gym with professional and amateur fighters from the area.

Amazed with the efficiency of ground fighting techniques, he decided to dedicate himself to the study of Submission Grappling.
