FALL 2013 CAMP w/ 
In October 2013 NYC Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Camp is honored to present two Jiu-Jitsu legends in one amazing weekend camp:


Participants in the October camp will not only enjoy the opportunity to train at Prof. Ribeiro's world renowned midtown Academy but will participate in a private seminar with Prof. Ribeiro exclusively for camp attendees.  


Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro (born February 24, 1979 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is widely regarded as on of the most gifted grapplers of all time.  A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist and mixed martial artist with a professional MMA record of 20 wins and 2 losses, Prof. Ribeiro earned his black belt with Nova Uniao while still a teenager and went on to win the CBJJ Mundials (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Championship) four times, once as a purple belt in 1996 and three times as a black belt in three consecutive years (1999, 2000 and 2001).  He competed in the ADCC World Championship, the most prestigious no gi grappling competition in the world in 2000 and 2003.

Prof. Ribeiro, commonly known as "Shaolin" to his friends, students and colleagues, came to New York City in 2008 with the goal of sharing his Jiu-Jitsu knowledge and opening an academy that would reflect his personal Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training philosophy.  Since that time, the Vitor "Shaolin" Jiu-Jitsu Academy has served countless students and visitors looking for exceptional teaching and training in the heart of midtown Manhattan.  


Participants in the Fall 2013 Camp will enjoy a three (3) hour private seminar with Prof. Costa exclusively for camp attendees.


Widely acclaimed as one of the most technical Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors alive, Gerry "Kid Peligro" Costa has been training, teaching and writing as a black belt professor for well over a decade.  From his world renowned blog to his best selling apps, countless Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu enthusiasts have trained "with" Prof. Costa having never met him.  Those who have had the opportunity to attend a seminar with Prof. Costa rave about his skill, enthusiasm and humor.  

Kid Peligro was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Growing up as a surfing enthusiast in the beaches of the South area of Brazil, also known as “Zona Sul”. Though Kid dabbled with other martial arts such as Kempo, reaching the degree of brown belt in this Chinese style, it was Brazilian Jiu Jitsu who really captured Kid Peligro’s attention, and once he started training, he never stopped.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu appeared in Kid Peligro’s life through a friend named Carlos Gama. Carlos trained BJJ and insisted (almost forced) so much that Peligro ended up giving in and joining Carlos to class. Kid Peligro trained under Nelson Monteiro until he was a purple belt, later moving coaches to train under Royler Gracie’s academy who awarded him both his brown and black belts (black belt in 2000).

Fall 2013 Camp Participants will also enjoy a special 90 minute small private class, exclusively for camp participants, at the amazing Renzo Gracie Academy (NYC) taught by Prof. Rolles Gracie, Jr. and Prof. Igor Gracie!  We are thrilled to offer this bonus session to Fall 2013 attendees and deeply appreciative to the Renzo Gracie Academy NYC for helping make it possible!
