The Jiu-Jitsu and Strength Academy and Soul Fighters BJJ Team (Under Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa) is regarded as one of the best competition training schools / teams in the area. We have some of the best jiu-jitsu fighters in the world and in our area training and sharing their techniques with each other on a weekly basis.

Our philosophy and approach to training is unique. We train very hard, but work together as a TEAM to help each other improve. This has allowed our members to improve their techniques and fighting ability quickly.

The team training starts off with a question and answer session with Formiga and other top athletes. The team works on the techniques they are having difficulties with or techniques they are trying to develop. It is a very “personalized training” type of class where every students gets to learn from, train with, and roll with some of the best in the world.

After the team works together on techniques, then they roll.  Typically there are 2-3 black belts on the mat, 2-3 brown belts and other talented purple belts and blue belts.  You will always have a challenging but progressive learning roll with your partners.
