Brazil-021 School of Jiu-Jitsu seeks much more than winning competition medals. Our resolution is to promote health, well-being, self-confidence, and mental toughness in a safe, encouraging, and inspirational environment to properly prepare our clients for all of the challenges of life.
The Brazil-021 School of Jiu-Jitsu, was founded by Jiu-Jitsu black belts Andre “Negão” Terencio and Hannette Staack. The school began with the vision of unifying its staff and creating a solid team, not only to train champions, but also to help its members become good citizens and family members.
Brazil 021 is not an Academy reserved solely for the “tough” and powerful, but rather for all men, women, children, and people who are unsure of their abilities.
The name and logo were inspired by the state of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. The numbers- 021, signify the telephone area code for Rio de Janeiro where Jiu-Jitsu was initially most strongly developed. Jiu-Jitsu is now practiced worldwide, and because of this globalization, the school was given a name with an English foundation: BRAZIL-021 SCHOOL OF JIU-JITSU, or BRA-021 for short.
The Team is composed with schools in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro), the United States (Chicago and Arlington Heights - IL, Houston - TX, Jacksonville - NC), and Canada (Edmonton - Alberta).
Knowing your lineage is very important. It defines not only who you currently are working with, but where all of the knowledge you are obtaining came from. Brazil-021 Jiu-Jitsu’s foundation was developed by Grand Masters Carlos Gracie Sr, Helio Gracie, and Francisco Mansor.
