Brazil 021 School of Jiu Jitsu was created by Jiu Jitsu black belts Andre "Negao" Terencio and Hannette Staack with the goal of unifying the staff and creating a solid team, not only to train champions, but also good citizens and family members.
The name and logo were inspired by the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The number "021" is the area code for Rio de Janeiro where Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was initially, and most strongly developed. Despite the new name for the team, 90% of the members came from the same lineage.
Many of the members were already black belts who had their own team/gym and trained good students, but represented their names individually. Brazil 021 brought together all these former students, black belts and teachers, with the goal of making them a nationally and internationally recognized team fighting under the same flag.
Our teaching system is based on traditional Jiu Jitsu, as perfected by the Gracie family. Our school offers classes for beginners and advanced students, men, women and children.
The Brazil 021 School of Jiu Jitsu follows the standards of the Brazilian Jiu jitsu confederation for the graduation of students in all its affiliated schools.
