Spreading Jiu Jitsu Lifestyle

to children, youth, teens and adults

DOJO by Leo Vieira is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy created primarily for the holistic development of children, youth, and teens in the Seal Beach, CA area and the surrounding community.

DOJO does not emphasize the sport or competition aspects of Jiu Jitsu and martial arts.

Instead, we seek a return to the traditional values of Jiu Jitsu and martial arts. Those values—instilled over time between instructor and pupil—include:  respect, humility, loyalty, friendship, and of course, self-defense.

We focus on the physical, emotional, and intellectual growth of children in a safe, clean, and fun learning environment.

A DOJO parent can expect their child to:

  • Build self-confidence and self-awareness

  • Learn self-defense and anti-bullying techniques

  • Exercise and gain balance, coordination, and motor skills

  • Practice respect, humility, communication, and loyalty with instructors and peers

  • Develop critical social and life skills through interaction in a supportive peer group

All DOJO classes will share two key components:

  • A 7:1 ratio of students to adult instructors

  • All instructors have been specifically trained to instruct children and adults by Master Leo Vieira.
