It is the ideal self-defense system for all and can be used successfully against multiple attackers, armed opponents and even attack dogs. As a complete martial art, students will also discover higher levels of confidence and mental ability and children will be taught the value of principals and building a strong character.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was originally developed from Japanese Judo after Japan sent top martial artist Mitsuyo Maeda across the globe to compete and demonstrate techniques. It was in Rio de Janeiro that Maeda, also known as Count Koma met the Gracie family including Carlos and Helio Gracie who founded Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the early 1900s. However it wasn’t until it began to be exported that it started to be referred to as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Since then BJJ has enveloped the globe and has proven itself in many MMA competitions and has attracted a large following including most of the UFC’s top fighters. You will now find BJJ schools around the world including the Guillobel Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy in San Clemente, California. Here you will find incredible instruction under Sensei Paulo Guillobel, who has trained extensively under Jean Jacques Machado, nephew of Carlos Gracie and one of the pioneers of this incredible martial art.

The advantages and benefits of BJJ are undeniable and even the most hardcore stand up fighters in the world have had to incorporate it into their training regimens in order to keep their competitive edge and be able to defend themselves in the octagon.
