ABOUT THE ACADEMY
We strive to teach the martial arts as a whole, not neglecting the important aspects of its traditions and valuing the principals of hierarchy, honor and respect. To learn from our mistakes and see the opportunities at every risk we take on and off the mats, building mentally and physically stronger individuals.
Our method is geared towards creating a solid foundation of training for our students, covering essentials and making sure safety is never overlooked in training.
To do this, all members of Brazil-021 Houston are always there to support and help each other to learn and improve.
It does not matter if you are an experienced practitioner or if you are starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for the first time in your life, the respect and attention to you will always be the same.
The Brazil-021 School of Jiu-Jitsu was founded by black belts Andre “Negao” Terencio and Hannette Staack with the goal of unifying Black Belt Professors and their teams, all former training partners before achieving their black belt rank, to fight under one single flag.
The union brought back not only former training partners, but a new group of professionals who share the same vision and martial art philosophy.
"Marcos and the crew of Brazil-021 School of Jiu Jitsu are amazing. I was traveling for work and decided to drop in on the classes. Every one of the students exemplified the welcoming spirit of Jiu Jitsu. I felt valued and really dug the training. They were great people and SOLID Jiu Jitsokas! Their Jiu-Jitsu skills really forced me to grow.
