My name is Juan Souza, I’m from Brazil but I’ve been living in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 3 years. I started doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of 16, I basically fell in love with the competition aspect of Jiu Jitsu and it has changed my life completely. Jiu Jitsu made many dreams come true.

Today I’m a black belt and my goal is help people change their life using this amazing tool called Jiu Jitsu. I believe that with focus and hard work you can accomplish anything that you want.

I graduated in computer science but Jiu Jitsu is what keeps me alive and that’s why I live to compete and teach this amazing martial art.
