A little information about who I am, what style of Jiujitsu and self defense I teach, and my goal with each student.

I started training Jiujitsu in 1995-96. I originally started with Carlson Gracie Sr., his son Carlson Gracie Jr., and Marcos & Marcelo Silveira. I trained with Carlson Gracie for approx 2 years before I switched over to the Gracie Miami Jiujitsu academy, now known as the Valente Brothers. I trained with the Valente Brothers for 17 years, and received my black belt in 2008. I have since moved on to run my own academy in Miami Dade County. 

My approach to Jiujitsu is not a common approach shared by traditional Brazilian Jiujitsu Schools. Many traditional schools of Jiujitsu teach the majority of their jiujitsu in a traditional kimono(Gi). I have two beginners classes I teach in the Gi, however the bulk and expertise of my academy and my teachings is No Gi. I personally feel that the Jiujitsu I am teaching, is a lot more applicable for real street self defense, and at the same time we can perform and conform extremely well for any sport grappling event. I was a cop for 25 years, and also a police defensive tactics instructor at the Miami Dade Police Department. I do not spend much time on a few techniques that in my opinion are not necessary or proficient in a street fight. I had 25 years of street practice of techniques on subjects, and I found that only a select handful of techniques had the highest percentage of use in a real fight. I am by no means, saying that you should disregard the entire Gracie Combatives techniques, instead I will spend the majority of your time training you in the most used techniques, and self defense. I am also very proficient in weapons defense, and mental focus,  preparation and survival mindset. I will teach you to become very comfortable in the uncomfortable. Your self esteem, your confidence, your safety awareness, and your physical condition will all improve. Simply put, Jiujitsu is more than just a martial art. Jiujitsu is a lifestyle, and I will teach you to live that positive and confidant lifestyle.
