I began training with Professor Wander Braga in 2001. As a white belt I was barely aware of all of the things that would be necessary for me to learn along the path to being a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt.Fortunately I had Wander there to help guide me.The art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is very rich.Wander’s methods of instruction make it so that the art is accessible to people from all walks of life without diluting the techniques and traditions that make Brazilian Jiu Jitsu so practical and beneficial. The confidence I now have to approach external and internal challenges comes from training with and teaching under an elite martial artist like Wander Braga. His influence in our art is widespread and ever-growing.His abilities in the sports of BJJ and MMA seem limitless.I would recommend that anybody who wants to experience what the true art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is about come to see Wander and train under a true BJJ legend.
I am a brown belt under professor Braga. As my main focus is BJJ for MMA, I was very impressed with master Braga’s no nonsense approach to fighting. He does not teach useless, flashy techniques that will never work on a real fight. Wander focuses on fighting strategy, great wrestling and crushing submissions. He is a true warrior and honors the legacy of masters Jorge Pereira and Rickson Gracie.
