Would you like to get in great shape while learning REAL self-defense skills? Would you like to find a sport for your kids where courtesy and sportsmanship is more important than winning? Do you want a fantastic workout for you or your kids that is never boring and that will continue to challenge you for years to come? My name is Joao Crus, and I’m the owner and head instructor here at Joao Crus Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Austin and Dripping Springs, TX. Here at Joao Crus BJJ Academy, for more than a decade we’ve been teaching kids and adults the “gentle art” of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-jitsu literally means “the gentle art” in Japanese. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (“BJJ” for short) is a martial art that developed in Brazil during the 20th century, but it has its roots in Japanese jiu-jitsu and judo. When Japanese immigrants brought judo to Brazil, they initially taught a version of judo that was closer to the old-style of jiu-jitsu, one that focused on subduing a bigger, stronger attacker with throws, locks, chokes, pins, and holds. The Brazilians who learned this art were quick to adapt it and then test it out in rough and tumble challenge matches that welcomed all comers. Over the years they proved Brazilian jiu-jitsu to be a highly effective martial art in challenge matches against wrestlers, boxers, karate men, and street fighters. This practice eventually led to the creation of MMA, where BJJ is still a dominant fighting art that is practiced by most of the top competitors in professional competition.

ABOUT JOAO
CONTACT

Joao Crus was born in Brasilia, Brazil, and moved to Rio de Janeiro when he was 17 years old. In his youth, he was very active and athletic in swimming. He started his initial Martial Arts training with Karate at the age of 22 and earned the rank of brown belt. Just before he was about to test for his black belt, he stumbled upon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and began secretly attending classes while he was still training Karate. In his competitions in Karate, Joao won 5 State Tournaments and was 2nd place in a National Tournament in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. However, once Joao had a taste of BJJ he no longer had the desire to complete his black belt in Karate, and began training BJJ full time in 1998. Before he came to the United States, he earned his blue belt under Leonardo Castello Branco in Rio. In addition to his martial arts training, Joao was a strong competitor in Wind Surfing and Sailing in Brazil. He won the amateur circuit 3 times in the Caribbean competitions. Joao was a part of the sports and nutrition world as a top sales representative for Optimum Nutrition and started his own store in 1999. During this time, he developed a friendship with world renowned Carlson Gracie. Carlson would visit his store regularly, just to visit and talk about life. Years later when Joao began training in jiu-jitsu again, he became an instructor under Carlson Gracie. Joao has been teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the Austin area for two decades, and has operated his own school in Dripping Springs for ten years.
