The Dollamur team was lucky enough to chat with the owners and of BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu and get some feedback on their experiences with our team and with their new mats.


About BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu

BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu was founded in 2017 by Jimmy & Lisa Smith although the actual journey began in 1995. Professor Jimmy Smith has trained in multiple arts throughout the years that included Boxing, Judo, Free Style Grappling, and Wrestling, but he landed in the gentle art of Jiu Jitsu. After training 4-6 times a week for years and seeing how much he loved it, his family started getting interested and wanted to try out jiu jitsu as well. One class was all it took, and they were all hooked. They have now been training together as a family for over 5 years and are so grateful to be doing what they love. They started BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu in Ridgecrest, California and recently relocated to the beautiful Emerald Coast in Niceville, Florida! Their mission began with just a handful of practitioners and quickly grew to over 150 students. They are hoping to be even bigger in Niceville! Being a family-oriented environment empowers BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu to offer classes for all ages at all different levels of Jiu Jitsu. As we are constantly progressing and growing together as a community, we strive to build up one another individually and as a team. We are affiliated under Professor Matt Baker, creator and owner of the TRUJITSU Revolution. TRUJITSU affiliates are located across the country!

You will learn the art of Jiu Jitsu, but more importantly, you will be joining a family that is built around trust, faith, loyalty, respect, and above all integrity.

-Proverbs 27:17 - “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”


Dollamur & BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu

We love our Dollamur Mats. At our first school in California, we purchased the 1.5 inch Flexi-Connect. We could not be happier with the mats and received compliments on our mats every time someone visited our academy. For our new school in Niceville, Florida, we purchased the 2 inch Flexi-Connect Martial Arts Mats and they are absolutely amazing. Perfect for Jiu Jitsu! No shifting of mats and nowhere for dirt and sweat to hide. Easy to clean and they look awesome! The Dollamur team was great and easy to work with. We will always be a Dollamur team - They really are the best mats you can buy!


Working with the Dollamur Team

The Dollamur team was wonderful! When you call, you talk to someone immediately. They helped us figure out what we needed and got the mats to us even earlier than promised. We made a last minute order for some wall mats and they expedited our order to get us the mats in time. We really could not be happier with the Dollamur team.


The Future of BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu

BlackSmith Jiu Jitsu is still growing, and we hope to one day have enough students to open the doors in the morning and stay open all day... A full schedule of classes and students spreading TruJitsu to the people in the Florida panhandle!
