Founded in 2006 by Prof. Nelson Monteiro and Prof. Rafael Ramos, their organization is the leader in professional Jiu-Jitsu instruction with over 700 schools world-wide and the most accomplished team of athletes in the history of their sport. They believe Jiu-Jitsu teaches much more than submission holds, their programs focus on creating a safe environment where students are challenged to grow on all aspects of their lives.
They teach Jiu-Jitsu for everyone. They want to do for others, what Jiu Jitsu has done for them.
