At Gazze we strive to help students get the most out of their training. For students with consistency and dedication, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu becomes a life-style and students can readily enjoy all the benefits of the Jiu-Jitsu or the “Gentle Art”.

    Gazze academy is a place that once you walk in the door it becomes your new home. I started training BJJ there 4 years ago and my main goal was just to learn the game of jiu jitsu as it seemed very intriguing to me. I have been an MMA fan since the UFC in 1993 and like everyone else I have witnessed the pure dominance the brazilians had in the cage with their skills. I set out to learn the game with no intention of ever competing, I remember the day I told coach Gazze this.. he laughed. Lets just say his laughter had good reason!! I did start competing and it has become my passion to say the least. I have won 14 medals in a row in 14 tournaments and have won several gold medals with a recent Gold medal at the 2010 National championships. This win gave me the final step to becoming a purple belt which is something that I hold very close to my heart. This is a major accomplishment to me and I will one day get my black belt and make coach Paulo Gazze a very proud sensei and a proud man. I highly recommend that if anyone is serious about learning the sport of BJJ or they are looking for a place to call home with a bunch of awesome guys come to Gazze Academy, we welcome everyone with open arms!

    I have been training with Junior Gazze for years and years even before he had this new location and you can see why he has had so much success as a coach. Classes are fun but push you to your limits of jiu jitsu knowledge and stamina. I have never needed any other kind of workout other than jiu jitsu and muay thai kickboxing at Gazze MMA.
