With 30 years practicing and competing all over the world, I decided that it was my time to set down some roots and build a strong foundation on my own in Austin. I have helped hundreds of schools around the world and their communities to develop a strong bond amongst their families. My goal has been to empower children and adults to reach their potential. Austin is the place I have chosen to bring the Art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and to continue my quest for excellence within the sport.

Professor Xande is a hall of fame member in the sport of Jiujitsu and one of the greatest ever. However, he is an even more talented teacher. As a student, it is awe inspiring to see how much joy he gets when I pick up a concept he is trying to explain. His style is perfect for beginners or advanced students because it is so concept focused rather than just a series of moves. It works for exercise, sport, or self defense.
