From Our Editors
In the long and storied history of jiu-jitsu, only six men have won two titles in the Absolute Division?the division that is open to any and all weights. Alexandre Ribeiro, co-founder of University of Jiu Jitsu, happens to be one of those six men. A six-time World Jiu Jitsu Champion, "Xande" received his black belt from his equally decorated brother, Saulo, who co-founded the school and wrote the widely acclaimed training manual Jiu-Jitsu University.
Alongside a roster of talented instructors, the Ribeiro brothers share their immeasurable wisdom at the University during a wide array of classes. They're especially well-versed in beginner, bully-proof, and self-defense tactics. Some classes are even designed for kids as young as 5, the age when most children begin submitting their applications to become a superhero.
