"I grew up in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, where I fell in love with BJJ. I first came to New York City while I was fighting in MMA and I saw a lot of potential here for great Jiu-Jitsu. I wanted to see that potential actualized. So I decided to open my own school. Now, we are hundreds of members strong with people from all walks of life. Men, women, teens, children, experienced athletes, and first-time practitioners.
I am very proud of the family we have built and feel very lucky that I can continue to spread the positivity that Jiu-Jitsu brings to people. I hope you join us!" - Shaolin
