  1. THE Academy to join in the Sarasota area.

    I have been studying the martial arts since 1977 and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since 2003 and have been blessed to study under some world-class instructors (Machado brothers, Royler Gracie, Crolin Gracie, David Adiv, Bill Wallace, the Bussey brothers & Ken Shamrock to name a few). When my son, Paul, showed interest in learning Jiu-Jitsu, to say that my expectations of a Professor and Academy were very high would be an understatement.

    Professor Thadeau has demonstrated since day one the rare combination of being a both a world-class instructor in the art of Jiu-Jitsu and a phenomenal instructor and coach. I’m impressed at every class, not just in his strong understanding of the concepts and technical aspects of the art – but also in his ability to communicate effectively to his students. My son has developed so much in his short time with Professor Thadeau and even competed and medaled in his first competition. He has developed a passion for the martial arts that has been tremendously impacted by the positive influence of Professor Thadeau.

    I can say, without reservation, that this is THE Academy to join in the Sarasota area. I give Professor Thadeau my highest recommendation.
