Luiz Baek Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, located at Song’s International Hapkido in Toluca Lake, California, offers instruction in Self-Defense, Gi and No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Techniques and Sport Grappling. A leader with a charming personality, Luiz is easy to warm to his charisma and learn from this knowledgeable and refined technician, a Brazilian/Korean triple Black Belt that believes in kindness and respect regardless of origin, knowledge, or background.
Luiz Baek, or as his students like to call him, “Mr. Baek,” is a talented submission specialist. With a vast variety of techniques in his arsenal, his is very respected for its devastating lower limbs attacks, flying finishes, and rock-solid, hard-to-pass guard. His “finesse” and unique flowing style is impressive and beautiful to watch, yet “deadly” to his opponents, due to his dangerous game.
Nevertheless, he is professional, driven, and focused. Mr. Baek is extremely thankful to his teacher, world class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Master, Professor John Machado, and Master, the legendary Hapkido authority, Grand-Master Ho Jin Song and Master Max Hyong Song.
