The East Mountains Martial Arts School comes from the dream of Professor Gustavo Monteiro. Gustavo was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. He has been a dedicated martial artist for more than 25 years, with experience in personal defense, boxing, kung-fu, MMA, and BJJ. He received his black belt in BJJ in 2012 under the Master Roberto Tozi / Roberto Godoi. He holds an IBJJF Black Belt certificate and an MBA in Business and Administration.
The academy was created to provide a location that integrates quality BJJ teaching and training with a comfortable learning environment that prioritizes the well-being of the whole family. Building on this commitment, G13BJJ East Mountains aims to value and unite our greatest treasures: health, mind, body and soul. Come in and enjoy the BJJ, destress with yoga, and make friends with others who also want to escape the rush of everyday life.
our core values
G13BJJ New Mexico was developed for the purpose of changing lives through the benefits of martial arts. People around the world engage in martial arts practice for a variety of reasons. This activity provides positive development of the individual's discipline and personality, while also enhancing socialization, self-awareness and leisure, as well as teaching the practitioner to defend himself from attacks without encouraging aggression. However, a strong motive that encourages the search for this activity is the improvement of health.
Love for our art is what drives us! With a world-class jiu-jitsu, our mission is to help as many people through the sport. Including, professional and high yield.
Providing our members all the benefits of our art through daily Jiu-Jitsu practice. We believe that, when properly taught the moral values of the martial arts doctrine will improve the lives of practitioners beyond the mat and manifest benefits that will be carried throughout their lives. Champions on and off the mat, champions for life!
Our goal is constant improvement, to support the development of our associates and students, consistent growth, and to create excellent representatives of our lineage, methodology, and flag.
