"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 M

"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 at 52 with a brown 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 Grant, an outstanding BJJ Black Belt under Sergio Penha.

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 have been fortunate to train with many blackbelts around the country. Sergio Penha is hands down the best instructor, technician and leaders I've met. You can tell the tone of a gym by knowing the head instructor. Sergio and his students fulfill their motto of "Family Loyalty Respect". In order to train BJJ you have to trust your training partners while still pushing the pace. Sergio's is a safe, fun and competitive place to train. Whatever your goal is (self defense, fitness, competitive BJJ/MMA) you can get there under Sergio's guidance.

In the past few years there have been many "big name" MMA and BJJ fighters that have sought out Sergio. BJ Penn and Bernardo Faria have both had extended stays at the gym.

Grant is an amazing kids teacher. He works really well with young kids all the way though teens. His students regularly place in tournaments around the country.

Come in and check out the gym for yourself. " --Paul M.

"If you live near here, this is the place to learn BJJ. With so many places to train in Las Vegas, I can see why some people get confuse to where to train. But seriously Sergio Penha is the MAN! If you really want to learn BJJ, you need to do yourself a favor and try this place. Sergio is a legend in this sport. His skills and his teaching are phenomenal. I took a class with him during a business trip and was extremely impressed. I was injured when I went to Vegas, and almost skipped the class with him. Didn't want to hurt my knee further. But to my surprise, his students were very respectful of my old crippled ass. I had training partners who train 100% against me even after I tell him I was hurt. Sergio is a great teacher, his place has a good vibe. Can't really ask for more. FYI he moved to 3904 Schiff Dr. And the street is actually a parking lot." --Rong K.

"My daughter Emma loves going to Sergio Penha's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Her teacher Grant is fantastic with the kids, he trains them hard with lots of structure but also keeps the classes fun. I personally like the academy for it's family oriented feel.

I highly recommend Sergio's Academy for any parent looking to place their kiddo in a quality Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Academy." --Sandra H.
