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.

  • Xande is a subject matter expert in the field of BJJ. His dedication, patience, and no-nonsense teaching method connects with every student from beginner to advanced. As a hesitant beginner I always felt welcomed and encouraged. My kids love it! The class structure keeps them engaged, teaches them respect, confidence, discipline, self-control all while having fun! Highly Recommend!!

  • Always a great experience learning from Sensei Xande! The atmosphere is very positive and promotes a great learning environment. Although he is the most accomplished competitor in the sport of Jiu Jitsu the details, concepts, and techniques he teach help all levels of Jiu Jitsu and I have found them easy to immediately incorporate into my game and my teaching. Amazing academy with an amazing vibe.. there is something for everyone here!!
