Brazilian Jiujitsu

Brazilian Jiujitsu is a strong combative art that evolved from the art of Japanese Jiujitsu in the early 1900’s. Helio Gracie is responsible for the development of Brazilian Jiujitsu and the tradition of dependable functional-based techniques have been handed down to his sons who are well-known across the world for their mastery of the art. Simplicity and having the ability to work against a larger person are the trademarks of this art that is constantly evolving.  

Professor Mike Bentley is one of small group of practitioners who have trained and received black belt certification from Professor Relson Gracie. Professor Relson Gracie is the second oldest of the Gracie brothers and well-known for his ability to teach sport jiujitsu and jiujitsu designed for combat. Professor Bentley also has a black belt in Taekwon-Do and an instructor certification in Muay Thai.
