Valente Brothers'Fighting Foundations Curriculum

Welcome to Chesterfield Jiu-Jitsu

Hello, my name is Christopher Charalambous. I started training Jiu Jitsu at the age of 29 in Derbyshire, England. After training for a year, I felt what I learned was not complete and something was missing. After doing some thinking and research, I decided to travel to Miami to learn Jiu-Jitsu from the Valente Brothers. Training with them has changed my life, and opened my mind to the world of Jiu Jitsu and martial arts.

Chesterfield Jiu Jitsu & The Valente Brothers

The Valente Brothers were taught by the late Helio Gracie making them the third generation of the Valente family who were taught under Helio Gracie. They are well known around the world and, are committed to teaching Helio Gracie's modified version of the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu (also known today as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu) strictly as Helio taught. This is purely self defence martial arts for any kind of scenario that requires you to defend yourself. Valente Brothers Style of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is designed to help the weak & helpless to defend themselves against the much larger & stronger aggressor.
