Two years ago Guilherme and Rafael Mendes solidified their place in the states by opening their own Jiu-Jitsu academy. After accomplishing multiple world titles each and still in their early twenties, the two prioritized their lives to gain a student base in the form of Art of Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Costa Mesa, CA.
On June 29 the team came together to celebrate this two-year anniversary at their white haven on E 17th Street.
Of the event and special day the brothers respond: “It was a great day for us, we are very happy for all the accomplishments in our lives, achieving the fourth World title and having so much success as professors is a blessing. We will keep spreading the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle and making more families discovery the magic of our amazing art.”
