Ailson "Jucão" Brites has over 40 years experience in teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. A black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr., Jucão has a competitive record of over 1,000 Jiu Jitsu matches in his career. Jucão believes deeply on the concept that respect and dignity cannot be bought, but rather must be won with the passage of time. Jiu Jitsu is more than a sport, it is an art that can bring discipline and tranquility to its dedicated practitioners.
Jucão currently holds the rank of 5th degree black belt and is one of the few of that rank in the entire Northeast. Jucão and his team teaches exclusively at our Upper Eastside and Upper Westside schools. We could not be prouder to bring this excellent program to our members at Modern Martial Arts.

I've only trained with Equipe Jucão and plan to be a lifer. The feel, the flow, the team, it's all perfect. We're a family, and Jucao expresses this philosophy everyday. He is insightful and passionate about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. You can see it in every move he knows and teaches. If you want to train under an amazing practitioner along with a great group of people who all strive to better their understanding of the Art together, then this is your place.

Jucão is a great teacher and I really like training at Equipe Jucão because of the friendly environment - we're all there to learn together and help each other. Not every world champion is a great teacher, but Jucão is. Give it a try !

I was a bit nervous in going because I didn't know what to expect. When I got there I got welcomed. The drills where shown and taught so you would know what exactly you had to do and they taught at your level which was great because I never took a martial art class before. Can't wait to learn more especially since its a great workout.
