Professor Pedro speaks in Los Angeles

On March 22, professor Pedro was once again invited to speak at the Jiu-Jitsu Lifestyle Summit in Los Angeles, CA, organized by Ryron Gracie. 

Professor Pedro’s talk was focused on the etymology and definition of jūjutsu, as well as grandmaster Hélio’s teaching methodology and style. VB black belt, Dr. Guy Scuderi, also gave a fine talk during the summit on how to minimize injuries during training.


Valente Brothers Jiu-Jitsu is the official representation of Grandmaster Hélio Gracie, in Florida. Professors Pedro, Gui and Joaquim Valente started training directly under the Grandmaster at the age of 2 years old in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and were his loyal disciples and protégés until he passed away in January of 2009. At Valente Brothers (VB) we are fully committed to preserving Hélio Gracie’s vision, teaching method, and ideals both on and off the mat.
