About Our Great Team
As mentioned on our “About Us” page, our school was run successfully for years (since 1994) by head instructor, Franco De Carmargo under Grandmaster Carlson Gracie. The academy was one of the very first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools in the Southern California area, and we’re very proud to have been able to continue the tradition set by Professor De Carmargo. See his original school logo to the right.
With Franco’s dedication to teaching the Carlson Gracie method of Jiu-Jitsu, the academy has successfully produced many great instructors competitors and fighters, in both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and Mixed Martial arts (MMA).
Below is our current team of fine instructors carrying on the tradition of Professor Franco De Carmargo’s Jiu Jitsu philosophy as taught to him by Grandmaster Carlson Gracie.
