Meet our Instructors
He began training Jiu-Jitsu in Oakland, CA. Initially, Fernando began training Jiu-Jitsu to have a hobby and keep in shape as he has always been involved in sports. Jiu-Jitsu quickly became a passion for him, especially the philosophy "skill over strength." Fernando moved to Brazil for a year to study Jiu-Jitsu and to learn their culture. He has taught both kids and adults for ten years now. Fernando received his black belt in March of 2016 while on a Jiu-Jitsu training camp in Brazil. In 2017 Fernando joined the Caio Terra Association and is directly under ADCC Champion Yuri Simoes.
