ABOUT

BONSAI JIU-JITSU ACADEMY WAS FIRST FOUNDED BY MASTER ADILSON DE SOUZA IN SAO PAULO, BRAZIL.  MASTER ADILSON WAS AWARDED HIS BLACK BELT BY OCTAVIO DE ALMEIDA, WHO AT THE TIME WAS ONE OF THE PROMINENT FIGURES IN THE BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU COMMUNITY IN SAO PAULO.  USING THE SPACE BEHIND HIS PARENTS’ HOUSE, HE STARTED BONSAI JIU-JITSU ACADEMY, WHERE HE WOULD BEGIN SHARING HIS KNOWLEDGE IN BOTH JUDO AND BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU.  DURING HIS TIME, MASTER ADILSON WENT ON TO PASS HIS TEACHING TO HIS 5 CHILDREN; MAURICIO, MARCOS, CRISTIANE, ROBERTO, AND MURILO.  THROUGH YEARS OF TRAINING UNDER THEIR FATHER, THE FOUR ELDEST SIBLINGS (MAURICIO, MARCOS, CRISTIANE, AND ROBERTO) WERE AWARDED THEIR BLACK BELTS BY THE LATE MASTER ADILSON. THROUGH THE YEARS, THE BONSAI JIU-JITSU TEAM EXPANDED ITS TEACHINGS OUTSIDE OF BRAZIL’S BORDERS TO THE FAR EAST IN JAPAN.  CURRENTLY, MARCOS AND ROBERTO SATOSHI HEAD THE BONSAI JIU-JITSU FAMILY IN JAPAN AND HAVE BROUGHT
THE TEAM TO THE FOREFRONT OF THE BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU MOVEMENT IN THE REGION.  WHILE IN BRAZIL, THE MAIN BONSAI JIU-JITSU ACADEMY IS LED BY MAURICIO AND CRISTIANE.

 

BONSAI JIU-JITSU TEAM HAS BECOME AN UP AND COMING NAME IN THE INTERNATIONAL BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU COMPETITION SCENE.  WITHIN THE PAST YEARS, THEY HAVE DEVELOPED FAST RISING COMPETITORS WHO HAVE BEEN IMPACTING THE BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU WORLD.  NOTABLY, BOTH MARCOS SOUZA AND ROBERTO SATOSHI SOUZA HAVE WON MULTIPLE WORLD PRO CUP CHAMPIONSHIPS AND HAVE FINISHED ON THE PODIUM AT SOME OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS IBJJF EVENTS.

 

DESPITE THE RECENT SUCCESS OF THE BONSAI JIU-JITSU TEAM, THE SOUZA FAMILY AND THE REST OF THE TEAM REMAINS TRUE TO THE CENTER OF WHY THEY FIRST BEGAN THEIR JOURNEY IN BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU...FAMILY.
