Dear Friend

My name is Rigan Machado, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is my life. But not because of its power... and not because of its strength... Because it changed my life - and it changes the lives of all of my students, too.

It gave me focus, drive, confidence, and discipline to create the life I wanted. It made me calm and peaceful on the inside, and powerful on the outside.

Now that my fighting career is over, I've dedicated my life to teaching and spreading Jiu Jitsu to all that I can. But the inner-strength still lives within me.

That will never go away. If you come and train with me, you'll gain these things too. And they'll change your life.

You'll feel accomplished, confident, and ready to conquer whatever life throws your way. You will become unstoppable, inside and out.

Plus: I'll also make you an amazing grappler.

So what do you say?

A Glimpse Inside These Classes...

Learn the secrets of the most winning BJJ fighter in history.

With a record of 365 wins and 2 losses, Rigan has the best record in the history of grappling.

He's even taken down guys like Ron Tripp - the only guy to beat Rickson Gracie in competition.

His unique training methods and outlook on grappling are what made him so powerful. Now, they're yours.

Top Hollywood Stars Love training With Rigan. Here's Why.

It's safe to say that guys like Ashton Kutcher could train with anyone money could buy.

Yet time after time they choose Rigan. Why?

Because this training is the real deal. It's unique, and it works. It's safe, it's fun, and it's exciting - every time you come.

But you don't have to have a movie star salary to train here. Memberships are more affordable than you might think.

Get in AWESOME Shape, Fast.

To truly perform Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques, you have to have a certain level of fitness.

Rigan will get you there in no time. But don't worry - he's no “drill sergeant”!

In fact, he's probably one of the kindest souls you'll ever meet.

He'll motivate you and inspire you to work hard, get great results, and get FIT, fast.

After Just a Few Classes You'll Already Look Like a Pro Because of Rigan's “Flow-Based” Training Method.

With Rigan's unique training system... you'll look and feel like a pro in no time at all.

Here's how it works: Many BJJ schools teach only one or two moves at a time. Until you master those, you don't move on.

Unfortunately, this can be a bit tiresome and it's not so fun.

Rigan developed an “unusual” way to teach you 5-9 moves and counter-moves right off the bat. And you'll work through them with a partner from day 1 too.

These series of moves are called “flows”, and when you and your partner go through a flow of 9 moves let's just say it looks and feels awesome.

This excitement and action is why Rigan consults on the set of action movies on a regular basis.

Safe. Non-Intimidating. Supportive. And FUN.

Rigan's gym is completely non-intimidating.

In fact, it'll probably be the friendliest, most supportive gym you've ever stepped foot inside of.

Support, motivation, and friendships are what it's all about. No one cares about looking like the toughest guy or gal in the room. Everyone just wants to train hard and have a good time.

You'll fit right in and have a blast from the start.

Rigan really puts personal time and care into his students.

I currently have a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and was looking for a new school. After trying a few schools I found The Academy.

Rigan Machado is a legend in the sport and his school top notch. I was happily surprised that Rigan teaches the classes himself. It's great to learn from all his years of experience.

The students all have a great attitude and it's just a great place to train, I highly recommend the school for any level student. The personal care and time Rigan takes with his students is a huge reason to train here. You'll be glad you did.

An intense workout. So fun that the time flies by.

Rigan is a champion and it shows in all aspects of The Academy. He and the other classmates are so knowledgable and willing to help that it makes the intense workout a learning experience that flies by. As a former wrestler, jiujitsu has quickly become my favorite sport.

I won't settle for anything less than the best!

Hi, I'm Philippe and am from Mexico. Even though I've been a fan of martial arts my whole life, it wasn't until I started Jiujitsu that I truly fell in love with it.

Being the demanding person I am, I did lots of research before finding two names that you are bound to hear if you hang around the mats long enough and those are: Rickson Gracie and his cousin, Rigan Machado.

After Rickson retired, the only option was for me to train under Rigan Machado since I won't settle for anything other than the best. Since I began the Academy, I've lost weight and met the only people I call friends in Los Angeles. I've had an exciting journey and wish you the same. I hope to see you on the mat soon.
