Veterans Jiu Jitsu Seminar with Vitor Oliveira

We’re offering a free Jiu Jitsu Seminar at the Museum during Veterans Day weekend to celebrate the service of those in our armed forces with guest instructor Vitor Oliveira from the Ronin Training Center.

After the seminar, participants are encouraged to stay and watch a special Belt Promotions event in collaboration with Gracie Ohio.

  • Eric Stansifer, U.S. Army Veteran and Gracie Ohio Jiu Jitsu Instructor, will be promoted to Black Belt
  • Micheal Noice, U.S. Army Veteran and Gracie Ohio Jiu Jitsu Instructor, will be promoted to Black Belt
  • Gary Hensley, U.S. Marine Corps Veteran and NVMM Jiu Jitsu Instructor will be promoted to Black Belt

We believe in having a welcoming and safe learning environment for all levels of experience; Beginners to advanced individuals are welcome.

Hailing from Teresópolis in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Vitor, the four time world champion, brings over two decades of world class Jiu-Jitsu experience to Ronin. He immersed himself in training at the legendary Pitbull Academy when he was only 8 years old. Following in his father’s footsteps, he earned his black belt from Adilson de Lima at the age of 22. Since receiving this highly respected rank from one of the world’s top BJJ instructors, Professor Oliveira has joined Grappling Fight Team as a renowned coach and competitor.

In addition to sharing his love and knowledge of BJJ with both children and adults, he remains an active competitor in some of the world’s most prestigious Jiu Jitsu tournaments. When it comes to teaching BJJ, you won’t find a more qualified instructor than Vitor. And while he loves to see his students excel in tournaments, what he loves the most is the progress each student makes as a result of hard work and determination. As a two-time World Champion with dozens of high-level titles, Vitor is more than qualified to teach BJJ to all students willing to learn. 

The event is finished.
