The Evolution Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy is the only academy in Ohio affiliated with Team Royler Gracie – David Adiv. Located in Cleveland Heights inside Cleveland Aikikai, we offer classes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Grappling, and Vale-Tudo. Evolution Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy stays true to the Jiu-Jitsu taught at the Gracie Humaitá Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We offer a balanced curriculum of sport, no-gi, self defense and no-rules (vale tudo) fighting. The emphasis is on ground-fighting but we also cover takedowns with and without the kimono (uniform). Donald Park is the head instructor of the Evolution Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy and a proud representative of Team Royler Gracie – David Adiv; Donald is currently a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
