As you know this week so many of our beloved AZ Jiu Jitsu academies closed to help slow the spread of Coronavirus and give our healthcare system a fighting chance. They are truly sacrificing for the safety of the community.

Aggro Brand has designed shirts of solidarity to be worn by all the Jiu Jitsu student’s supporting closed academies in order to raise funds for those academies.

The front of the shirt/sweatshirt reads: CLOSED OUT OF LOVE NOT FEAR

T's and Tanks $20
Sweatshirts $35

Men’s T and Tank: XS-3XL
Women’s T and Tank: XS-2XL
(Women’s run small)
Youth: M-XL
(Youth runs small)
Men’s Sweatshirt: XS-2XL
Women’s Sweatshirt: S-2XL
Youth Sweatshirt: M-L

We are also looking for sponsors to cover the production costs of these shirts so that we can send ALL the proceeds to academies that make orders. If you are in a position to sponsor the production of the shirt with a $50 donation please contact [email protected]
Marcio is one of the most passionate Jiu jitsu instructors I’ve ever met. His intensity and love for the sport is largely unparalleled. His enthusiasm bleeds. Marcio lives and breathes Jiu jitsu and it’s plainly evident in his teaching style. Further his accolades and accomplishments speak for themselves. He’s one of the best Jiu jitsu practitioners in the world and by extension in Phoenix

[03/16/20]   In order to prioritize the safety of our members with the current situation surrounding COVID-19. We would like to take preemptive and proactive measures.

After careful consideration, we have decided to close our gym for 1 week. Starting TOMORROW 03/16 until 03/23.

As many of you know we, as part of the larger community, are trying to limit the spread of this virus so that our healthcare systems have the best chance of coping. By doing this, we do our part until we can figure out testing and other ways of dealing with this situation.

As we said before, this is an incredibly difficult decision to make, we just opened our business 7 months ago, but we believe this is the correct precautionary call to make sure everyone is safe.

We will be monitoring the situation closely and will inform all of you of any news.

**To be very clear that there are absolutely NO known cases of the Coronavirus at the academy**

ONLINE CLASSES - all MA members please send us a message to get FREE access to our online university.


Corona Virus 🦠 UPDATE

We take pride in providing our students not only world-class instruction but also a world-class facility.

Remember this is not about being scared it’s about being smart, safe and aware. Educate yourself on the best practices at

Our students’ health, safety, and success are our #1 concern, so the following 3 steps are what we are implementing during this challenging time.


We have decided to close the academy until Monday 3/16 when we hope to have more information to reassess the situation. This is an incredibly difficult decision to make, but we believe this is the correct precautionary call, to make sure everyone is safe.


📌 Visitors - we will be closed to non-members/out of town visitors. We have a welcoming open-door policy, however, due to the Coronavirus we are taking precautionary measures.

📌 We have increased our cleaning cycles and are treating all common areas with disinfectant regularly. We wash our mats after every training session with a product that kills bacteria and viruses.

3. FREE ONLINE TRAINING - all students will have free access to our online classes to make up for missed classes.

"Very few grapplers have accomplished what Márcio André has done in his 24 years of existence. A world champion who battled with all the legends of his and of past generations, including the Miyaos, the Mendes, two generations of the Cobrinha family, Edwin Najmi, Renato Canuto, Lepri, Langhi, etc. The list is endless and incredible. Even more so, when considering he was raised in an impoverished region of Brazil, a place where opportunity did not come knocking at doors" ~ @bjjheroes

It’s not enough for a teacher or leader to be brave or be a great champion. Without equilibrium and wisdom, they won’t know how to respond to their students’ questions. Without courage, they don’t instill confidence in their students. As the book The Art of War teaches, “If a general isn’t courageous and levelheaded, he will be unable to extinguish doubt or make great plans.” 🥋🏆

Why You Should Attend Fundamental BJJ Classes (Even If You're An "Upper Belt") If a BJJ academy has the capacity for them, fundamentals classes can be a great way for beginners to learn the basics of jiu-jitsu before (or in addition to) getting overwhelmed with more advanced techniques. Fundamentals classes aren’t just for new jiu-jitsu practitioners, though. Even if you cou...

Why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Is A Great Sport for Unathletic Children As a child and teenager, I loved sports, but was simply not athletic. I couldn’t dribble a basketball or shoot a layup. I was the right fielder in little league baseball that struck out a lot. I did try wrestling in high school, but was pretty mediocre and quit after losing two-thirds of my matche...
