RMBJJ History

Professor Rodrigo Mendes started RMBJJ Academy in Boston, Massachusetts  after he came to America in 2002.

When Professor Rodrigo moved to South Florida in 2004, he continued RMBJJ Academy, and opened the current Delray Beach Headquarters location in 2009.

Today, there are multiple locations across South Florida that are a part of the RMBJJ Association. For a list of all RMBJJ Association Locations, click here.

Those students who train at different schools under the RMBJJ “flag” are united as a family, with the mats as their second home.

Those schools who are a part of the RMBJJ Association have access to the superior instruction and guidance from Professor Rodrigo Mendes himself. For more information on becoming a part of the RMBJJ Association, click here.
