Our program is led by Felipe "Zicro" Neto, an Alliance 5th Degree Black Belt, with a degree in Exercise Science and more than 30 years of experience in the art. In our program, you will be shown easy to learn, fundamental positions, and self-defense techniques that will help you to build a strong foundation so you can control and/or submit opponents during class. As you progress in the program, more difficult challenges will be presented to you and more advanced techniques added to your foundation. Felipe's philosophy is to contribute to the evolution and education of others through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, improving health, body composition, self-esteem and confidence, whether they be fighters, athletes or otherwise.

The curriculum for the school is structured to maximize student learning. Our group classes focus on specific positions that are focused on each week.
