A cat always lands on his feet and Jerrod exemplifies these qualities demonstrating spectacular standing and ground fighting techniques no matter the competition format or his orientation to the earth.  Maybe his “cat-like” reflexes stem from his college mascot “Mike the Tiger” at his alma-mater LSU where he graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Finance.



Jerrod Brasseaux has credentials recognized in all major United States Judo organizations.  He is a Life Member of the United States Judo Association (USJA) and he is a strong supporter of the International Freestyle Judo Alliance (IFJA) / AAU Judo.
