My Name is Jung Choi, and I grew up in South Korea. I have been practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Professor Marcello C. Monteiro for almost two years.

Because of the nature of my job (Sr. Computer Engineer), I wanted to find a martial art which could not only relieve the stress from work but also help me to improve both physical and mental strength, and I am so glad that I found Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Marcello as my teacher. After searching for a couple of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools, I chose Marcello's academy because not only he is from Brazil where this martial art originated but also he has a long history of teaching jiu-jitsu champions and developing the high technical aspects of jiu-jitsu.

Professor Marcello teaches the details of each movement and how to apply those details during the actual training or tournament. While I am rolling and sweating with my teammates during the class, I forget my worries and enjoy the nature of this martial art which really helps me to control my emotion and improve my physical strength. I would recommend Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to anyone who is looking to gain fitness benefits or relieve stress.. Once you try it, you will soon realize Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu becomes a part of you life...
