    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.

    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.

    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.
