“Every time we are in Las Vegas Sergio Penha opens his doors to us. He does so with no reservation, his hospitality and knowledge are amazing. Master Sergio’s knowledge leaves me feeling like a novice every time he speaks. Thank you for everything Master.”

– Robert Whitakker – UFC Middleweight Champion

“Sergio Penha was one of the best and most technical competitors of all times who became a great Master and an example to follow on and off the mats.”

Murilo Bustamante – former UFC Middleweight Champion and IFBJJ World Champion

“Every once in a while, If you are lucky, someone enters your life and really changes it for the better, In my life and for me, this person is Sergio Penha, Master in the philosophy and art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Unlike most BJJ Masters, Sergio Penha actually instructs everyday. Training in BJJ is not easy and really training is not supposed to be easy – The bests things in life should be a struggle to attain. I started with Sergio when I was 46 years old as a white belt – Now a black belt , I am in the best shape of my life . My attitude is positive and I feel great!!! I would advise anyone – even if you think you are “too old”- just try BJJ at our club. Sergio Penha BJJ curriculum includes Self Defense, Physical Fitness, BJJ Training with Gi and No Gi. Many professional MMA fighters train with Sergio as well visiting world class BJJ players. Separate classes for kids and teens are also instructed by Sergio. Training with Sergio Penha has changed my life for the better and has become “si·ne qua non – that essential element.”

Sir Raymond K.C.S.J.

“I was lucky enough to attend Sérgio Penhas seminar at Gracie Smeaton Grange. What a masterclass of Jiu Jitsu! The knowledge and his way of Jiu Jitsu is presented. Is first class on all levels. I can’t wait to visit his academy in Las Vegas to soak up some of the 41 years of Jiu Jitsu knowledge! Aloha”

—John Shimooka – former pro surfer ASP top 16

“The time spent with Sergio has helped shaped my life and future. I owe him a debt of gratitude for his mentoring, character building, oh, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Without the teachings and supportive environment of the Sergio Penha BJJ family, my family and I would not be where we are today. I now understand what Sergio has known for a long time, “Love what you do, and you will never work a day in your life” (Chinese proverb). He gave up a lot to pursue his passion for BJJ, and we all reap the benefits! Thank you so much for EVERYTHING… Your student and friend.”

—Lauren Moreira

“So much Respect for Sergio Penha . Sometimes we forget to look back in the history and see who fought hard to make the sport get in the point that it is right now. In the beginning, BJJ was small, there was not so many tournaments, there was not even a World Championship or a federation, but there were people that took it serious in the same way that we do now, and for sure without them we would not be able to see the sport as it is now. And I was fortunate to learn more than 1 month straight from this Legend of our sport in Las Vegas. Thanks for all the teaching, friendship and consideration you have for me Serjao! Ossssss #respect #legend”
