    The Ultimate Self-Defense System

    The techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu have been developed over hundreds of years and the roots of BJJ can be traced to a martial arts system that Samurais used for warfare.

    The polished BJJ techniques have been proven effective in all stages of combat, from ancient military fighting systems, to the streets and to top mixed martial arts competition... UFC champions know at least the most basic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques, attacks, defenses and escapes.

    Robert 'Gordo' Jiu Jitsu Legend

    “I met Dennis in 2003, and soon after realized he was very tough, he had (just) won a (jiu-jitsu) championship with no time limit fights. From then until now, coming to live in Brazil, aside from being very tough he transformed himself into an excellent fighter and professor of jiu-jitsu. I am sure that he is one of the best North American black belts!!! *That aside from being my first North American black belt!”
