Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been proven among the most effective Martial Arts for self defense. Jiu Jitsu technique and tactics have been adopted by all 5 branches of the US Armed Forces. Federal and local Las Enforcement Agancies favor Jiu Jitsu over other Martial Arts because it favors controlling and immobilizing opponents over striking and inflicting damage.

Ever since me and my daughter set foot in the academy, there has not been a moment where we do not want to train. Jiu jitsu has changed our lives in many ways. From eating healthy and discipline. We can't imagine out lives without training anymore. Everyone at the RABJJ has been like a second family to me and we are very lucky to have each and every one of them in our lives. I would recommend the school to anyone.Milly V
Our curriculum is a unique style of Brazilian Jiu jitsu, unlike other martial arts which teach violent punches and kicks, the RABJJ Academies Programs utilizes non-violent control holds which are only used as a last option against a physical assault. We emphasize the value of constant learning and self-improvement, and as a result, our students develop highly effective self-defense techniques and experience new levels of confidence and empowerment.
Absolutely!! In fact girls are among the most technical and dedicated students at RABJJ Academy. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on Grappling, Takedowns and Takedown Defense making it the preferred Martial Art for the US Army, the FBI, US Marshalls, State Police as well as local Law Enforcement. Jiu Jitsu techniques are unparalleled in rape prevention and don't forget it is a killer workout.
Black Belt is a universal symbol of courage, confidence, mastery and self-discipline - in fact many professional athletes, hollywood actors and CEO’s take up Martial Arts because it not only helps you with weight loss and fitness but the discipline and focus you gain from training translates into every area of your life.
I've been lucky enough to train under some of the best combat sports coaches in the world. Simply put, there is a reason Professor Ricardo is sought out across the globe - he's among the best jiu jitsu teachers on Earth and the rest of the staff is world class. More important, though, is Professor's focus on the jiu jitsu way of life - being excellent, healthy and happy on and off the mats and getting there through BJJ. He once told us that Master Renzo didn't just teach him to fight, he taught him how to live. The same is true now for him to all his students. I am honored to be his student and his friend.Nick K
