“Training with Antoine has changed my life. I have been able to accomplish goals I would have never dreamed possible - including competing in and placing in a number of tournaments. Entering my mid-30s I am in the best shape of my life. People who have known me for years tell me that I have become a better version of myself and an example for others.”
“Fumaca introduced me to Jiu-Jitsu around 2008 or 2009. I dibbled and dabbled but never took it seriously. With the passing of my little sister in 2013 and going through a divorce shortly after that, I was in a pretty bad place. Fumaça reintroduced Jiu-Jitsu to me and helped me focus through my pain. I was learning a great art, meeting new people, and traveling to places like Brazil to train. Fumaça and Jiu-Jitsu helped to better my life when I needed it most. For that I will always be grateful to Fumaca Jiu Jitsu!!”
