Lotus Club turns 24 years old

Lotus Club Brazilian Jiu Jitsu celebrated it’s 24th birthday yesterday, so we (Siege MMA/Lotus Club AZ) took a picture and had a cake to celebrate.  It is important to understand where your instructors came from in Jiu Jitsu and to have respect for those who came before you.  So here is a quick history of Lotus Club.

Founded on February 19th 1989, by brothers Moisés, Elias and Ali in a time when Jiu Jitsu was not as well known as it is today. Lotus Club always maintained its traditions; where quality of life and respect are priorities.

The competition teams of Lotus Club are well known in São Paulo, boasting the largest number of titles. Today Lotus Club has broken boundaries and developed in other states as well as countries all over the world, such as the United States (Florida, Arizona, Washington, New York…), Japan and New Zealand, among others.

The origin of the academy is in the district of Santana, in the northern region of São Paulo, a region that harbors a large number of branches in the central region as well south, east, and west and in other cities in the state of São Paulo, Mato Grosso, Ampá, Santa Catarina and so on. There are now over 100 black belts promoted by Master Moisés Muradi, a Fifth Degree Black Belt.

In the United States Lotus Club continues to grow under my professor Giva Santana in Irvine, CA.  Giva is one of the top BJJ practitioners in the world as well as a very accomplished MMA fighter.  Also representing Lotus Club Irvine is top pluma weight Black Belt Laercio Fernandes and Black Belt Fabio Nascimento.  Look for a great year for Lotus Club as we continue to put our name on the map.
