Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu is a Martial Arts style based on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In 1995, Saulo Ribeiro received his black belt and thus began Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu. Soon after, he was joined by his younger brother, Alexandre “Xande” Ribeiro, and together the brothers have become the most accomplished brothers in the history of the sport.
Saulo and Xandes’ rank are certified by the IBJJF, the official governing body of BJJ. Saulo and Xande are also IBJJF certified to award all rank levels.
With 13 World Championships between them and countless DVDs, books, projects and seminars they conduct all over the world, these two IBJJF Hall of Fame brothers are well known as a point of reference and resource for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Saulo and Xande are Samurai of the modern world and follow the meaning of the word. They are here to SERVE.
For over two decades the Ribeiro Brothers have gained immeasurable experience and conquered the world with their fighting skills. Now, they are looking toward the future and the new generation of Jiu-Jitsu practitioners. They invite you to join forces with them and touch as many lives as possible through Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu.
The Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu Association (RJJA) currently has over 50 affiliates spanning the globe: Brazil, Canada, USA, Europe, Russia, and Asia.
RJJA does not follow the trend of “McDojo”. The affiliation process is exclusive and based on ‘personal touch’. All candidates must fill out the basic application, go through a personal interview on the mat, and fulfill the moral values that are required to belong to RJJA.
In order to assure the highest level of quality, a successful completion of an Instructor’s Course is required. The Instructor’s Course covers all aspects of Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu: self-defense; history and philosophy; competition; and submission wrestling.
The mission is simple: Improve ourselves as Martial Artists, help people follow their dream, spread Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu all over the world, live by The Code and build a LEGACY.
The Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle means to be surrounded by good people, care, work hard, pass the art on, get better everyday, be healthy and happy. We accomplish this by adhering to the values of the 6 Blades: Family, Loyalty, Discipline, Attitude, Respect, and Honor.
