WARNING: If you can’t defend yourself on the ground, then you cannot defend yourself!
You see that “Warning” at the top there, well, it’s there for good reason.
Because if you’re the least bit serious about learning how to defend yourself, then you absolutely must know the proven, “battle-tested” ground-fighting techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
“Most, nearly ALL, fights end up on the ground or in grappling range at one point or another.” That’s a FACT.
That means basically that if you don’t know how to defend yourself on the ground, you’re putting yourself (and even your loved ones) at extreme risk.
Let’s face it. If Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a “must-know” thing for professional mixed martial arts fighters like the guys fighting in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) these days, it should most definitely be a “must-know” for pretty much anyone.
That’s because the “fight-ending submissions” and “fight-controlling positions” of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu have been battle-tested in combat, in a cage, in a ring and on the street.
Professor Bruno Bastos is a 4th degree Jiu Jitsu black belt under Wendell Alexander. This tough competitor from Nova Uniao also loves to compete in Submission Wrestling, having fought in the greatest NoGi tournament in the world (the ADCC). Additionally, Bastos is a charity activist having formed projects that commit to taking youngsters off the streets.
Bruno was born on the 27th of March, 1980. He started training jiu jitsu in 1990 when he was 10 under Neury Gomes, and he stayed training under Neury for the next year and a half. He then picked up training with Aílson Brites for a short spell before finally ending with Wendell Alexander (in 1993) the coach that followed Bruno until he reached his black belt.
Professor Bastos has competed all over the world and holds numerous titles in multiple organizations. He is beloved by the Jiu-Jitsu community because of his competitive spirit, and his passion for coaching and helping others achieve their goals.
