About Brigadeiro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

It all started in the early 90’s with the end of Academia Clube Barra, famous for training great athletes and for being the creator of the Main and Traditional BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU event held annually in Rio de Janeiro. The South Atlantic Cup as it was called brought together the best and Brazil’s top fighters. With the departure of the main teachers of Clube Barra to the United States, their activities and responsibility were left with the student and Professor Eduardo Venâncio “Brigadeiro” (only 17 years old at the era).

In 1992 with the growth of JIU-JITSU SPORT, Eduardo Brigadeiro joined the students who stayed with him and decided to develop and create the BRIGADEIRO JIU-JITSU, academy that has its origins in BARRA DA TIJUCA, the noblest area of the city of RIO DE JANEIRO.

In 1995 EDUARDO BRIGADEIRO started the expansion of BRIGADEIRO JIU-JITSU by opening its first branch in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, in the same neighborhood where the headquarters are located today.

In 1997 the horizons widened and the expansion of the first branches outside of Rio de Janeiro began, in BRASILIA, Capital of BRASIL and soon after that in the same year the branches in the cities of CASCAVEL and MARINGÁ were opened in the state of PARANÁ.

In the mid-2000s Eduardo Brigadeiro traveled to Europe for the first time and established the FIRST INTERNATIONAL BRANCH of Brigadeiro Jiu-Jitsu in Portugal, BEING THE PIONEER IN BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU IN PORTUGAL. The expansion did not stop there, Eduardo Brigadeiro continued the challenge of taking BRIGADEIRO JIU-JITSU IN THE EUROPEAN CONTINENT AND IN OTHER COUNTRIES.


Over its 30 years of foundation, BRIGADEIRO JIU-JITU has registered more than 1000 enrolled students in its academies, the Academy has already recorded in its registration the training of more than 150 black belts.
