Lotus Club Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu New York was founded in February 1989, by brothers Moisés, Elias and Ali in a time when Jiu Jitsu was not as well known as it is today. Lotus Club, located in Queens’ Long Island City, has always maintained its traditions, where quality of life and respect are priorities. Today, we offer MMA and Yoga along with our BJJ program.
The competition teams of Lotus Club are well known in São Paulo, boasting the largest number of titles. Today Lotus Club has broken boundaries and developed in other states as well as countries all over the world, such as the United States (Florida, Arizona, Washington, New York…), Japan and New Zealand, among others. The origin of the academy is in the district of Santana, in the northern region of São Paulo, a region that harbors a large number of branches in the central region as well south, east, and west and in other cities in the state of São Paulo, Mato Grosso, Ampá, Santa Catarina and so on.
There are now over 100 black belts promoted by Master Moisés Muradi, a Fifth Degree Black Belt. Here at Lotus Club New York, we are so very proud to be apart of such a rich heritage of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and feel honored even more so to be a part of Lotus Club, with it’s great Masters and fighters.
