ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective martial arts in the world today. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker, person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be performed by people of any age, size, strength, or gender. The key is to outsmart your opponent, not out muscle them. This concept is what makes Brazilin Jiu-Jitsu a sport that can be enjoyed by anyone.

Our program is based on the ATOS Jiu-Jitsu curriculum, the world’s #1 Ranked school, founded by five-time Black Belt World Champion and four-time ADCC Submission Grappling World Champion Andre Galvao. Ultimate Athlete Jiu-Jitsu is the 1st United States affiliation under 3rd Degree Black Belt, and current UFC fighter, Davi Ramos.

Our instructors are experienced, fun to work with, and completely professional. Our facility features a spacious, clean, and comfortable mat area (over 1,100 sq ft!), and ample seating for spectators.

In addition to our high-level instruction, that can be experienced every day, we host several seminars every year lead by some of the greatest Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the world. Past seminars include: Paul Schreiner, Jeff Glover, Josh Hinger, Davi Ramos, and Clark Gracie.

Atos Jiu-Jitsu TeamAtos Jiu-Jitsu Team was founded in 2008 by Professor Andre Galvão and Professor Ramon Lemos. The Atos Jiu-Jitsu Team has become one the most recognized and respected names in the Jiu-Jitsu industry. As one of the smallest teams in the sport, Atos has influenced the way the world practices and defines Modern Jiu-Jitsu. Atos Jiu-Jitsu is linked to the evolution of the 50/50 guard, leg drag, and berimbolo.

Through their success, the Atos Jiu-Jitsu Team has attracted talents from all over the world, and has grown rapidly becoming one of the strongest teams in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. While the team’s origins are based in São Paulo, Brazil, the team’s headquarters has been based in San Diego, CA since 2010. Since then, the team has added many great names to its competition team, including, Prof. Leo D’avila, Keenan Cornelius, JT Torres, Mendes Brothers, Claudio Calasans, Michael Liera Jr., Michael Carbullido and many more.

Atos was founded by two friends who shared the same religious beliefs and an intense passion for Jiu-Jitsu. The word “Atos” is the Portuguese word for “Acts”, which specifically references “The Book of Acts” in the bible, based on the belief that “God can do amazing things through ordinary people, when He empowers them through His Spirit”.
