Owned and operated by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champions Saulo and Xande Ribeiro, the University is a progressive learning environment that promotes traditional martial arts and their accompanying values, based on positive attitude, discipline, family, honor, loyalty, respect, and samurai spirit. The goal of the University is to not only build better martial artists, but also better human beings.
The University of Jiu Jitsu was created by Saulo and Xande Ribeiro in 2007. Assisted by their long-time coach Royler Gracie, the Ribeiro brothers have created a refreshing concept in martial arts instruction. Ignoring today’s focus on the commercial aspects of martial arts, Saulo and Xande have instead returned to traditional samurai values. These values focus on attitude, discipline, family, honor, loyalty, and respect. The University welcomes all students who are ready to commit to these values and study martial arts as a true life path.
