De Boa Academy

I am very excited about the opening of my Jiu Jitsu Academy in Surprise, Arizona,  De Boa Academy, by late 2014.  I am happy to continue to fly the Lotus Club Flag, representing Lotus Club Arizona under the mentoring of Giva Santana.  De boa is slang in Portuguese for “good,” or “‘chilling,” we felt the name was very appropriate.  The goal of the Academy is to create a drama free atmosphere that serves as an escape from life’s daily struggles and pressures, all while training like a champion on the mat.  The school’s focus will be Jiu Jitsu and we promise never to lose that focus!

The Academy is centrally located in Surprise on the southwest corner of Cactus and Bullard.  Come find your escape!

Please go check out our website   Also look to add us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates on the gym opening and exciting news.

As I wait to get the gym built out and open, my garage is acting as a temporary hangout for my wife and I.  We decided to mat the space and use the next couple of months to train as much as we can and get better.  If you are interested in private lessons I will be offering them for a stupidly cheap prices before our grand opening.  E-mail me if you are interested at
