We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a seminar with the legendary Coral Belt Leão Teixeira on 28th January at Tiffin Sports Centre from 1-3 pm.

Leão, also known by his nickname “Zé Beleza”, is a very close personal friend of Mauricio and Mauricio has arranged this very special visit for us!

Leão is an important figure in jiu-jitsu’s history as he was one of the founding members of the Gracie Barra academy and the Escola de Jiu-Jitsu Leão Teixeira a prime BJJ academy in Rio de Janeiro which is renowned for its work with children. Leão Teixeira (who trained extensively with the legendary Rolls Gracie) was also closely connected with the creation of CBJJ/IBJJF, jiu-jitsu’s most established governing body. He was also a prolific competitor in the 1980s and is a Rio state and international masters champion.
