Chesterfield Jiu Jitsu at Valente Brothers Headquarters in Miami
On November 5th Christopher Charalambous, and four others, made there way to Miami to train at the famous Valente Brothers school of Jujutsu (jiu jitsu).
Christopher, Maria Gomez, Lucy Needham, Dominic Bagley and Daniel Gore, all made the trip. Most of us trained every day learn from the best and sharing knowledge with all of Valente Brothers students.
This opportunity is one of the most positive experiences we have had, in our jiu jitsu journey, and I believe everyone should experience this beautiful school designed to teach us the roots of jiu jitsu.
We all had the chance to look around the school and most interesting, the Valente Brothers archives.
This room is dedicated to the roots of Jiu jitsu, learning where and when jiu jitsu was discovered. They have hundreds of booked, some dating back to the 1800s which were written in Japanese.
Walking around the museum is also a great sight, from the Japanese to the Gracie family and on to the Valente Brothers, all the history is there to be seen.
Christopher charalambous was lucky enough to have the opportunity to teach a few private classes, this was a great honour to have then ask me to teach, but truth be told I was very nerves.
Although I have been teaching in the UK for five years, teaching at the headquarters is on a much bigger scale but truly enjoyable for any teacher of Jiu jitsu.
What makes the Valente Brothers stand out from the rest is their constant quest for knowledge of the techniques and history, I don’t think there is anyone involved in Jiu jitsu that has more knowledge than they do.
If you want to learn about the history, have the most educated teachers and meet new friends, then Valente Brothers is the place to go.
