The Best Training in Sacramento

There are many places to train Jiu Jitsu in Northern California but few match the quality and professionalism of a Cassio Werneck facility.  The history of Cassio’s Sacramento location dates back to 1996 when Cassio came to the U.S. for the first time. Cassio stayed for a few months and opened a training center with the help of Terry Maxwell. Cassio returned several times to compete, give seminars, and teach at the school and was eventually invited to come and coach full time at an academy in Sacramento (Kovar’s Karate). Cassio and his wife Hilza made Sacramento their home in 2003 and opened his own academy in 2005.

Cassio’s instruction has attracted both beginners and professionals alike. As a World Champion and highly regarded BJJ Instructor in Sacramento, many elite athletes such as Randy Couture, Urijah Faber, Dan Henderson, and Frank Mir have trained with Cassio when they need to work on their ground game. Today, many of the BJJ Black Belts teaching in the greater Sacramento area received their belts from Cassio!

Cassio brings passion to his instruction and enjoys sharing authentic Brazilian Jiu-jitsu with his students, whether they aspire to be a champion, to challenge themselves or just stay in shape. If you ask a student that trains at Werneck Jiu-jitsu, and they’ll tell you it’s like training with family. Cassio’s students come from all walks of life, but on the mat, we’re all students of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We help each other and push our fellow students to become better at Jiu Jitsu and life. Cassio is a true leader; and takes care of his students.
