Limitless Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an affiliated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy of the Vitor Oliveira Fight Team and the Grappling Fight Team(GFTeam). The lineage of our head instructor and of the association to which we belong descends from the Oswalda Fadda Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lineage. We are one of the few lineages who Jiu-Jitsu comes from the same time as the Gracie Families but from a different family of Brazil. We are equally capable of our counterparts but descend from a different family of equally rich history and tradition.
The intent of our academy is to give back to the community what Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has given to us. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a much deeper art than most people realize. On the surface we award belts, compete for medals, and teach self-defense. But the reality is Jiu-Jitsu is about a more profound message. We teach people to believe in themselves. Jiu-Jitsu is not an activity you participate in that stops when you leave the gym. To truly be good at Jiu-Jitsu you must adopt a mindset and an attitude of self-belief that you carry with you everywhere in life. This is what Jiu-Jitsu has given to us as a community and we are here to share it with you.
While we are first and foremost a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu based academy we still offer (or plan to) offer other disciplines. As the school continues to expand and enrollment increases, class volume and variety will increase and diversify. For more information about the programs offered check out our programs page.
