Considered by many the most efficient self-defense martial art, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu originates from the understanding that most physical altercations end up at a close distance and consequently on the floor. Through a series of body positioning, choke holds and locks, the efficacy of Jiu-Jitsu relies on giving the practitioners the ability to defend themselves against physical attacks and subdue their opponent without the need for strikes.

From professional athletes honing their craft to beginners seeking to improve their fitness and self-defense skills, many enthusiasts are drawn to the sport for its benefits. In New York City, Range BJJ NYC, a trusted BJJ academy located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, will be the host for Lucas Lepri’s seminar, and it’s the only BJJ gym in manhattan affiliate with Lucas Lepri Association.

In 2010 Eduardo received his Black Belt from Lucas Lepri and Fabio Clemente.

“The Jiu-Jitsu learning journey has no end. New techniques are created, different approaches emerge, and new styles become in evidence, so It is crucial to have the opportunity to gain knowledge of the new and be able to connect the novel concepts with the Jiu Jitsu fundamentals,” said prof. Eduardo.
