Sensei Paulo Fernando is on the mat everyday teaching his classes personally. You will find his own family taking his classes & learning techniques.
I would like to introduce my family of Martial Artists. I am Paulo Fernando Augusto, My wife Katia Agmont Augusto, My son Thomas Agmont Augusto, My daughter Luana Agmont Augusto. We are responsible for running the largest and most sophisticated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Dojo in San Diego County founded in 2005. I Paulo Fernando have been practicing Judo since 1974 and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu since 1986. My kids Thomas and Luana have been involved in martial arts since age 2 ½ years old.
It was a dream to come to the United States where I learned with hard work the American Dream could be earned. I knew if I was willing to dedicate myself our struggles would make us stronger. I came with the attitude I wanted to prove I was here to contribute and not expect something for nothing. We knew our future was here and by quickly learning the English language, making many new friends, and adapted ourselves to a whole new culture but we made it.
Today, we say we are Brazilian by birth but proud, loyal, and dedicated American Citizens by choice. We are a very strong happy family and are indebted to this Country for the opportunity it has given us. Through Martial Arts, we have helped 1000s of Families, Kids, and adults to reach their goals and dreams in life. Our mission is to build strength, confidence, self-esteem, discipline, and respect for every student working closely with the parents of our minors with the same benefits for our older members.
