Gracie Jiu Jitsu Black Belt holds a Free 2 hour Self Defense Seminar in Mount Dora, Florida!
Grappling Mastery is a new Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Academy in Mount Dora, Florida. They will be holding a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, April 11th starting at 10am. The new BJJ and MMA Academy is located at 19051 US HWY 441 Suite #200, Mount Dora Florida. “We are excited to be located in a safe and professional plaza within a great community!” says Head Instructor, Professor Brian Ruscio. You can find a virtual tour of their new facility on their website, www.GrapplingMastery.com .
The event, which is going to be catered by nearby Chipotle, will boast a Free 2 hour Self Defense Seminar taught by Professor Ruscio, who is currently undefeated in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and recently won a Light Heavyweight Pan American Championship! The event will also feature Zumba and a Ginastica Natural Class, which is similar to Yoga with Jiu Jitsu drills mixed in. Afterward, there will be an “open mat” session with the members and ladies visiting from other BJJ schools in Florida.
Grappling Mastery is Building Champions On and Off the Mats. They have a great kids program giving them the opportunity to compete in tournaments. Many of the children have won championships and medals that are proudly displayed at the gym. Recently the Kids Team won 3rd place overall at a major tournament! What impresses us more than medals is the character of Professor Ruscio’s students. They are well mannered and confident. One proud father stated, “I can’t begin to explain how proud I am of not only their results in competition but also the discipline and sportsmanship that is impressed upon them during their training.”
Adult Classes are available to everyone, however Grappling Mastery also offers Ladies Only Classes for women who may not feel comfortable in a combined group. “We focus on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as it applies to Self Defense. We show them how to use leverage and technique to incapacitate larger opponents with joint locks and chokes.” This is a free ladies class that Grappling Mastery holds every Saturday.
Police, Firefighters, and Military make up most of Grappling Mastery’s membership base. “I’ve been training directly with police and military officers in some form for over the last 10 years and offer a ‘Hero Discount’ in honor of their continued service.” In this day and time of violence against police it’s good to know there is a place for them to prepare themselves for the dangers of their occupations. The rest seem to be professionals and business owners. Grappling Mastery offers what they call Executive Jiu Jitsu, which caters to professionals. Professor Ruscio states, “I designed it to teach Jiu Jitsu to men and women who want to learn BJJ but don’t want to risk injuries that could affect their career or lifestyle.”
This is a great addition to our community and offers a great way to learn self defense, get in shape, and meet new people. The Grappling Mastery team seems a lot like a family. Professor Ruscio has developed a culture of mutual respect. “The type of guy that comes in trying to be tough and beat people up doesn’t last long here. That’s not what we’re about. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a lifestyle and our members are everyday people trying to live a healthier life.”
