A Chat with Emerson Souza Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our school is the only one in Long Island where the instructor is a world champion in Brazilian jiu jitsu. We offer classes for everyone: kids aged 5 and older, adults, men, or women. We have a two-story facility on a well-located Merrick Road in the heart of Baldwin, New York.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
We have a very friendly environment and an anti-bullying philosophy. Practically anyone can utilize the techniques created by Carlos Gracie. The core principle of Gracie jiu jitsu is to provide a method for smaller, weaker individuals to protect themselves from bigger, stronger attackers.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I love what I do and want to make sure I share my passion with others.
What do you love most about your job?
Being able to make people learn how to make a better life for themselves.
