“The Benefits that The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center brought into our Lives.”
Alex Gonzalez and his son, both started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Master Vagner Rocha,on April of 2008. The main reason he commenced his Martial Arts Training was because he used to be overweight. “I was weighing in at 250 lbs, I really let myself go. I knew it was going to take a lot of work and dedication to accomplish my goals and at the same time I wanted to get my son involved in something that was going to be a great fit for both of us.” He says. Since then he has seen many positive changes in not only him but in his son too. Alex says proudly “My son used to be very shy and somewhat negative, but now he is a complete different character, he is so strong minded and confident. I couldn’t be happier with the benefits that the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center brought into our lives” His son is now a N.A.G.A Champion at only 7 years old. Like father, like son. Gonzalez not only lost over 60 lbs but has achieved many accomplishments as 2x N.A.G.A Champion, Grapplers Quest Champion, FGL Champion and placing 3rd at the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship . The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center is very proud to have them as part of the Team!!!
"Lost 20 lbs And My Energy Level Increased Significantly!"
"Hi, my name is Sean McCoy, and I have been attending classes at The BJJC since September, 2005. Although I am a new student in comparison to many others at the BJJC, I have been excessively impressed with the professionalism and patience of the instructors. The instructors give you personal attention, and seem genuinely interested in helping you meet your own individual goals. I learn a lot of new things in every class, and the content of each class is fresh, interesting, educational and fun. In addition, the students attending the BJJC come from various walks of life, and are of every age, color and ethnicity." I am 31 years old and my personal goal is to lose weight, raise my confidence level, and increase my overall level of fitness. In the last month I have already lost over 20 pounds, and my energy level has significantly increased. I look forward to the classes I attend each week, because I have a feeling that the instructors genuinely care that I am participating. If your personal goals are similar to mine, you need to call today to make an appointment for a personal interview with an Instructor."
"I am in the best shape I’ve been in literally two decades."
"My kids and I have been training in BJJ under Master Popovitch for almost a year. In that year some amazing things have happened to us. For one, I have lost over 80 lbs. I went from having high blood pressure, sleep apnea, insomnia, and always feeling tired to being healthy and in the best shape I’ve been in literally two decades. My kids have both also had a significant improvement in their physical fitness level. All three of us enjoy training in BJJ and have a great time in each class. What I as a parent especially like about the training is that kids are allowed to train at their own pace. The emphasis is on having fun, and that keeps the kids interested. As the kids have progressed, it has given them more confidence, too. The instructors at the BJJ center are world class, and they go out of their way to make sure you are learning all you want to learn. I’ve also found that senior students are eager to help out and give you tips as well. I highly recommend training at the BJJ Center, you won’t regret it."
"My blood pressure has dropped into the low to normal range for the first time in many years."
Hi everyone! My name is Randy Cupples and I am 56 years old and it is June 14, 2006 and I have been a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center student for a little over six months. On January 31, 2005 I had triple by-pass surgery. As I recuperated from the open heart surgery I was desperately looking for ways to change my lifestyle. After the operation my pulse rate was around 80 - 83 beats per minute and my blood pressure continually recorded in the high range. After my operation I was thinking about asking my doctor to put me on medicine to lower my blood pressure but was worried this would not lead me to the quality of life that I wanted. I decided to find an alternative to taking blood pressure medicine and any related drugs. I noticed the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center and subsequently discussed my health situation with Master Pablo Popovitch and Instructor Jay Moncaio. With their concerns that I should not push myself to hard, I started classes in December 2005. Physical change is never easy but I was determined to improve my health. Pablo and Jay, as they will with any student, watched over me and monitored my progress to ensure that I did not "over exercise" or "burn out" on the training as I was in really poor physical shape. Because of the encouraging comments and helpful direction from Master Popovitch and Jay Moncaio (and so many other students) I have stayed with their training program and truly improved my health! My pulse rate is now between 60-63 beats per minute and my blood pressure has dropped into the low to normal range for the first time in many years. I have to say this is the best training I have ever experienced. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center training methods have literally changed the quality of my life!

According to The Director of The Institute of Human Performance ...
"Pablo Popovich is the complete package when it comes to being a combat professional!
I have had the pleasure of being associate with Pablo as his strength and conditioning coach and as a student of combat sports. Pablo brings his professionalism, knowledge and physical abilities to the mat 100% of the time; as an athlete and a instructor.
As an athlete, few can rival his dedication, discipline and physical abilities. As a coach and instructor, few bring the systematic development approach Pablo employs in this Jiu-Jitsu and Submission grappling academy. I consider it a pleasure and great honor to be considered his friend, coach, and student."

According to a 2004 Olympian

"I Would Recommend BJJC To Anyone!"
Before I started at the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center I was riding my bike 20 miles 3 to 5 times a week but my cardio has never been as good as it is now. I have only been training for 2 months and I can work out with no muscle fatigue and I have much better stamina. I couldn't imagine a class more fun or effective. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a way to get in better shape and learn the most effective Martial Art in the World. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the Best.

"This is the pinnacle of my martial arts career."
I began seriously studying the martial arts when I was in college in the 1980”s. I started in Tae Kwon Do and eventually earned a black belt. When I saw tapes of the first UFC, I realized that I had more to learn. I spent the next couple of years kickboxing and stick fighting until a career move landed me in Ft. Lauderdale in March, 1997.
I remember arriving on a Sunday and one of the first things I did, even before I unpacked my car, was look in the yellow pages for a BJJ school. As fate would have it, my apartment was 2 blocks south of Grandmaster Jorge and Master Pablo Popovitchs’ first school in Pembroke Pines. The very next day, I went to the academy and tried a class. After that first class I knew I was at home. I have been with Grandmaster Jorge and Master Pablo Popovitch ever since.
I watched the academy evolve from a small group of students, to the creation of the Team Popovitch competition team in 1999, to the huge organization, with 2 affiliate schools in Cleveland, Ohio and Louisville, Kentucky, that it is today. Most impressive though, was witnessing the evolution of Master Pablo Popovitch from a 16 year old purple belt to the world class grappler and instructor that he is today.
No one trains harder that Master Pablo Popovitch and his accomplishments on the mat speaks for themselves. But, best of all, he is one of the premier Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors in the business. Master Pablo Popovitch's dedication to his students is evident by the accomplishments and successes that they have had, both on and off the mat. To train with Master Pablo Popovitch is to be a part of something special.
On August 16. 2006, Grandmaster Jorge and Master Pablo Popovitch awarded me my Black Belt. I am truly humbled to be their first American student to receive such recognition. This is the pinnacle of my martial arts career. I thank both of them for all the years of mentoring, instruction, and inclusion into their family.

"Never Found A More Effective and Enjoyable BJJ Training Center!"
My name is Michael Zanetti. I have been training in various martial arts for a number of years. Never have I found the training as effective, satisfying and enjoyable as I do at the BJJ Center. My rationale is three-fold:
#1 – Pablo Popovitch
There are a lot of instructors who lack a proven track record of their capabilities, resulting in a need to preach from afar about their accolades, systems and skills. With Pablo, he doesn’t need to talk the talk, he walks the walk. Pablo actually has won the tournaments and championships, and the result is a high level of confidence in himself and his system.
How is this reflected in the class? To begin, the class is far more informal than most martial arts classes. There is no need for false displays of respect; Pablo deserves respect and gets it. Moreover, Pablo actually trains with the class, often pulling students aside and training with them individually. There is no need for false bravado and preaching from afar; Pablo believes in himself and his system.
The overall result: a prime learning environment with a top level instructor.
#2 – Class structure
Because of the informality of the class, the students share a tremendous amount of information with each other. Similar belt students share intricacies of techniques and variations with one another. Higher belt students help lower belts on an individual basis improve on their technique. This builds a high level of camaraderie among the students in what could be a very competitive environment.
BJJ itself is very fluid, with countless variations and intricate movements. An environment where techniques can be openly discussed, improved on and practiced creates an accelerated learning curve for all parties involved.
#3 – The focus on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
With the recent popularity of UFC/NHB-style fighting, many traditionally “one system” schools have begun cross-pollinating, teaching various styles and systems. The result: being average at a number of different things.
The philosophy at the BJJ Center is different. As Pablo has expressed a number of times, his goal with the BJJ Center is to become the best BJJ school in the country. One focus, one goal: being the best at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
With things running the way they are, don’t be surprised to see the Popovitch team at #1!
"I'm Fortunate To Have A World Class Jiu-Jitsu Trainer"
"I have trained Karate for over 10 years, and I thought it was a very complete Martial Art until I found out about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I have been training for over 6 months now and I could say I fell in love with Martial Arts again.
Not only I am lucky to have found about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sooner than later but I also am very fortunate to have a World Class Instructor and Fighter teaching me. It blows my mind that I can actually train with him everyday."
"The Instructors Are Top Notched!"
I have recently begun training at the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center. When i realized that I could actually learn from Master Pablo Popovitch himself, i jumped at the opportunity to join his school. Although I have trained in other areas of Martial Arts over the years, I have never learned anything nearly as effectivy as Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. A little research on Google will tell you all that you need to know about Master Popovitch. Master Popovitch is quite simply one of the most respected and very best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors in the world, and a fantastic intructor for people of all ages. His others instructors are top notch as well. I believe that a school can only be as good as it instructors, and thats why im truly honored to be part of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center. You can search the entire United States and only find a handful of school like the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center. Fort lauderdale is truly fortunate to have an instructor with the qualification and character of Master Popovitch.

"One of The Most Humble Champions I've Ever Met"
Master Pablo Popovitch - "Without a doubt the toughest grappler I have ever trained with. He's an incredible athlete who has found a way to seemlessly blend great Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills with great Wrestling skills. He is dangerous on his feet, on top, and from his back. Pablo is not only an incredible fighter he is also a great person. One of the most humble champions I have ever met."

"Most Complete Grappler I Ever Trained With!"
Master Pablo Popovitch is the most complete grappler I ever trained with. His Brazilian jiu-jitsu is unreal and his wrestling skills are out of this world. He is an outstanding competitor, and I consider him to be one of the best at his weight division in the world. He is in my professional opinion one of the favorites to win the next A.D.C.C (World Submission Grappling Championship).

"I have had the greatest time training under Master Pablo Popovitch at The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center. It has benefited my game as a competitive grappler 100 times over. I started wrestling at young age of 5 and I have been competing for over 21 years. Not only have I learned the ground game but have improved my takedowns due to the emphasis put on training stand up attacks and defense.
Since I started with Master Popovitch I’ve won 4 NAGA Advanced Championship and 1 runner up. My grappling record is 13-1 over that time period.
I know what great training is and I have trained with the best, I highly recommend training With Master Popovitch, he will take your grappling game to another level."

"I have been training with Master Popovitch for 3 years and he is one of the best in the World, I have seen beat a lot of top guys and that motivates me a lot. Since I started training with him my game went through the roof, I am just a purple belt but many of the Black Belts that come to train with Master Popovitch are very impressed my skills.
On my last tournament I was able to tap guys in my division under 2 minutes, and at no time I was ever in danger of losing any of my matches.
He is not only a great fighter and instructor but he is also someone that always guides me in the right direction in life and training. He is the best in the world and I am blessed to train with him."

"I have been training Brazilian jiu-jitsu with Master Popovitch for a little over 3 year. Having trained stand up Martial Arts for many years, I realized I knew nothing about Grappling so I began training under Master Popovitch. My goals were to train hard and become a champion.
Not only I have achieve my goals but I feel like I surpassed hem under the instruction of Master Popovitch. I can now compete with many Black Belts even tough I’m still a Purple belt, what impressed me the most is that during my visit to Brazil a couple months ago I had a chance to train at different schools and I realized how much better Master Popovitch instruction was, I felt especial.
There is no other instructor on the planet that I would rather train with, Master Popovitch is the Best!!! His techniques are priceless the Grappling Game, I consider it an honor and I find myself blessed to train with one of the Best in the World."

There are many reasons to join the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center. If you are looking for an intense workout, it is one of the best full-body workouts around. I have tried other martial arts, and nothing compares to the intensity found in Jiu-Jitsu. Other martial arts practice moves that may never be used in a real situation. Everything we learn in class is immediately tried in a real-life sparring situation. Jiu-Jitsu is also an intense mental workout. Similar to a game of chess, every move has a counter-move. Two people of different size can spar, and it is the one who has the better technique who will be the winner, even if they are not the bigger or stronger of the two.
I believe the best reason to join the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center is for the opportunity to train with one of the best competitors in the world. Many instructors may teach a martial art simply because they have been involved with it for a long time. Not only has Master Popovitch studied Jiu-Jitsu for most of his life, but he has competed in and won numerous tournaments. Other places may offer instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but they may not have an instructor with the skill and experience of Master Popovitch. His staff of instructors are also well-qualified. The instructors and a lot of the students are some of the best competitors around. Everybody there is very friendly, and always willing to help.

"My Physical conditioning has improved, and I've taken my self-defense skills to a whole different level!"
The quality of training, the hours, the flexibility to attend other classes and sessions are all GREAT! I've only been a member for a short time, but I have found all of the instructors to be deserving of recognition.
They have all shown tremendous patience and have taken the time to work with me. I originally joined the BJJC as a way of providing some conditioning to my workouts.
I'm happy to say that I received that and so much more. Under Mr. Larry Bolden direction and dedication the BJJC has been an incredible experience. My Physical conditioning has improved, and I've taken my self defense skills to a different level. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Center provides everything you're looking for.

"I highly recommend you step in to one of Larry's classes!"
I've been working with Larry Borden for the last two years for my own Muay Thai Kickboxing training. Although I have no intention of stepping in a ring, I am being conditioned, coached and encouraged as if I was. It doesn't matter if you have ever tossed a jab or have been fighting as a professional for years.
Larry can take your skills to another level!! If you really want to burn calories, develop a solid core, learn self defense and have a ton of fun, I highly recommend you step in to one of Larry's classes. With more than 20 years of experience in the martial arts, a deep passion for teaching and a solid character you cannot ask for a better instructor than Larry Borden.
"My stamina has improved 100%, I am able to keep up 3 to 4 rounds with my sparring partners."
I like the kickboxing class in Team Popovitch because I am learning to use my elbows, knees, and legs as extra tools for self-defense. My stamina has improved 100%. I am now able to keep up 3 to 4 rounds with my sparring partners. In combination with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, it completes my self defense training.
"My body feels better than ever! I'm stronger, faster and more flexable and agile than I ever thought possible!"
First I would like to thank Master Popovitch and everybody at the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Center for all the help and support they have giving me in my first year of training. The classes are amazing! I knew nothing about martial arts before I started and Master Popovitch went above and beyond any expectations of that. My body feels better than ever! I'm stronger, faster and more flexable and agile than I ever thought possible!
"I recently fought my 2nd MMA fight and I was able to win by KO"
I could not be happier with my kickboxing training. My dream has always to be a professional MMA fighter, at the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center I get all the training that I need. I recently fought my 2nd MMA fight and I was able to win by KO. Thanks to all the great instructors and friends.
"My Son Is More Focused And Respectful"
My son Alexander has shown tangible benefits ever since he joined the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center. He is now more engaged and secure in his social dynamics with his peers and even more focused and determined.
The professionally trained and skilled staff at the BJJC also provides excellent instruction in Jiu-Jitsu and grappling techniques for self defense, discipline and respect to others; which is consistent with his at-home education.
Needless to say, I as a parent am very satisfied with the instruction my son is receiving and I look forward to many more years of enjoyment for my son in this martial arts program.

"Training Helps Me Focus At School... I Can't Wait For Class"
Son of world renowned author and Tai Chi Master, Arthur Rosenfeld, eight year old Tasman began his Martial Arts training four years ago with Karate Master Jim Sullivan of Boca Raton.
At the age of five he earned his yellow belt in Karate and won first place for forms at his very first Karate tournament. By the age of six he had received his green belt and is currently ready to test for his brown belt in Karate. Focusing on forms and weapons (bokken sword, double bokken sword, sai, and nunchaku) Tasman has developed a strong appreciation for this ancient Japanese art.
To more fully explore his love and interest in the Martial Arts, Tasman began studying Brazilian Jui Jitsu in the summer of 2007. Recognizing the need to develop his grappling and floor skills, Jui Jitsu seemed like a perfect fit and the Brazilian Jui Jitsu Center, with it's cadre of experienced and accomplished instructors has been the ideal training center.
He finds the Mixed Martial Arts training at BJJ to be a valuable component of his martial arts studies and looks forward to practicing Jui Jitsu for years to come.
"Learning Martial arts is fun. I enjoy learning about other cultures while studying the different Martial Arts and I also think the training helps me focus at school" says the young student. He goes on to note, "I have met some great friends at BJJ and I love my Jui Jitsu instructors. They are very cool and helpful. I can't wait for class each week!"

"It is So Exciting To See Them Want To Learn And Succeed!"
We have three boys and one girl taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Ages 8,9,11 and 13. They all love it, as do I. It is a sport that transcends size and age. They learn respect, camaraderie, self defense, and gain self confidence.
It's so exciting seeing them want to learn and succeed. Even on the weekends they want to practice and train at home, and I have seen positive influences in all the kids. I look forward to watching them progress on their journey. I strongly recommend it.

"An Amazing Experience For Our Son!"
The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Center has been an amazing experience for our son Kai Crull. Being that his classes are taught from the same instructors as the adult classes, Kai has an opportunity to see firsthand what it's like to be part of a world class school.
Group activities, drills and exercises have provided a sense of teamwork and acceptance among the classmates while at the same time the level of personal attention available has yielded tangible gains in Kai's actual skill level in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Kai has become physically stronger and more composed and has gained valuable mental attributes which we've seen pay dividends both at home and at school.
He's learning the value of teamwork and good sportsmanship, respect for self and others, and is developing a competitive drive which would simply not be as effectively fueled with any other activity or school. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Center has truly been a character builder for our son and I highly recommend it to anyone interested.
Parent of Kai Krull
"The Best Thing That Ever Happened To My Son!"
The Popovitch BJJ center has been the best thing that has ever happened to my son Christian. He has gained so much self confidence and pride since he started training. He looks forward to every class.
Before he started, he was shy and timid. Only 6 months into the classes, he built the confidence to compete in the 2007 Miami NAGA tournament and won 3rd place in the Gi with Submissions division! I have never been so proud!
The staff is wonderful and extremely patient. They give a lot of one on one time with the kids. They make sure that the kids understand each and every step before moving on to the next move.
We take pride in knowing that my son is being taught by the best in the world! I definitely without a doubt recommend the Popovitch BJJ Center to anyone who wants to train in Jiu Jitsu! You can't go wrong with the BJJ Center!!!

"It Gave Our Kids Confidence ..."
My kids and I have been training in BJJ under Master Popovitch for almost a year. In that year some amazing things have happened to us.
For one, I have lost over 80 lbs. I went from having high blood pressure, sleep apnea, insomnia, and always feeling tired to being healthy and in the best shape I've been in literally two decades. My kids have both also had a significant improvement in their physical fitness level.
All three of us enjoy training in BJJ and have a great time in each class. What I as a parent especially like about the training is that kids are allowed to train at their own pace. The emphasis is on having fun, and that keeps the kids interested.
As the kids have progressed, it has given them more confidence, too. The instructors at the BJJ center are world class, and they go out of their way to make sure you are learning all you want to learn. I've also found that senior students are eager to help out and give you tips as well.

This is the most fun and effective training I have ever tried!
“I was introduced to Russian Kettlebell training routines by my exceptional trainer , Camilla Silva. Kettlebell training routines immediately became my favorite form of training.
I felt an amazing difference after just a few days of working out using the kettlebell. I felt impressive power, motivation and body transformation. This is the most fun and effective training I have ever tried!”

“I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight after only 3 weeks!”
I personally came to Camilla after having two children and wanting to gain muscle tone and strength to keep up with my growing family. With hard work, Kettlebells transformed my body and got me in the best shape of my life.
I trained with Camilla and worked out with Kettlebells thru my 3rd pregnancy until the week before my son was born. Camilla's constant monitoring, care and safety of both me and my baby was her priority.
My pregnancy went incredibly smooth and bouncing back was amazingly fast. I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight after only 3 weeks! I highly recommend Camilla Silva to anyone who is willing to put in the effort to achieve their fitness goals!

“With Camila's help, in addition to building muscle, I recently won my first 5K race.”
"Camila has been my personal trainer for two years, with a focus on strength training. The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Camila's knowledge and perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs & extremely challenging workouts.
Her professionalism and enthusiastic commitment to her work and ultimately her clients, coupled with her expertise and new and innovative training protocols such as the use of Kettlebells and plyometrics provides the perfect opportunity for success. With Camila's help, in addition to building muscle, I recently won my first 5K race."

“Training with Camilla has changed my life.”
I know this will sound cliché, but training with Camilla has changed my life. Before meeting Camilla I thought of myself as a "happy mother of two with back problems who used to be athletic."
After two weeks of training with Camilla, I swear I felt athletic again. I always feel confident that my safety, strength and health are her first priorities... loud music and a bit of twisted humor are a close runner-up. Her workouts are motivating and fun.
