Welcome to our academy. My name is Sergio Silva and I have been teaching Brazillian Jiu-jitsu in the Bay Area since 1999 when I emigrated to the United States.
At our academy we emphasize respect without submissiveness. I respect my students as the individuals that they are with a focus on their development as martial artists and people.
I am a 3rd degree Black Belt in Brazillian Jiu-jitsu, 1st degree Black Belt in Judo and have participated and won Brazillian Jiu-jitsu tournaments at the black belt level, submission wrestling tournaments and MMA matches.
I am a former World Champion of submission wrestling and multiple times NAtional and International Champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts
I began my martial arts training at 4 years old with my uncle who was a judo Professor Edgar Barreto in my home town of Curitiba, Brazil.
I began training in Brazillian Jiu-jitsu at age 13 at the Carlson Gracie Guardian Academy, also in Curitiba, Brazil
We moved to our current location on Park St with my wife Rebecca’s Yoga Alameda Studio in 2014.
