Tony Passos is one of a few Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts under Ricardo De La Riva. He shares this rare distinction with such greats as Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, and Moacir “Boca” Oliveira. Tony started training in Jiu-Jitsu at 18 years of age in Recife, Brazil. Since that time he has trained and learned from champions such as Andre Galvao, Otavio Souza, Braulio Estima, and Lucas Lepri. While his love for competition is strong, his true passion is teaching. Tony believes that Jiu-Jitsu can change your life through hard work, discipline, and focus. He feels that no matter if you are young or old, male or female, strong or weak; Jiu-Jitsu can help you change your life for the better.
Our training space includes over 2,100 square feet of mat space, a fully equipped cardio and weight area, showers and changing rooms, and everything else you need to train at the highest level!
