Houston, TX Dr. Nguyen Tom Griggs uses Japanese Jujitsu principles to help organizations develop black belt leaders and teams. Known to his students and clients as “Sensei Tom,” Dr. Griggs has more than 23 years of experience in martial arts and is a 3rd degree black belt at TnT Jujitsu. He uses a variety of martial arts concepts to guide individuals and organizations to achieve greater levels of teamwork, morale, performance and serenity.

Growing up in a multi-cultural home in a rough neighborhood, Dr. Griggs did not want to engage in the same behaviors he saw in his community. He says martial arts helped him deal with his anger.

When he entered the workforce, however, Dr. Griggs noticed that corporate environment was similarly rough. It wasn’t violent, of course, but it didn’t bring out the best in people. And so, Dr. Griggs set out to change corporate environments by changing the culture, changing people and their beliefs.

Dr. Griggs recently launched the J²H² Experience (Japanese Jujitsu Happy Hour), where employees and senior leaders can learn basic Japanese jujitsu techniques while bonding and learning about their team members.

“We all know the boss can hire and fire, so how can he wield that ability while developing a strong culture,” says Dr. Griggs. “Let it all go. I'm the black belt, you get to be the white belt. The principles of discipline, focus and understanding that we can only control ourselves, are the lessons every black belt should know, and every leader should follow. That’s black belt leadership.”
