Tyler Kaufman
I train there with my two sons and all of us enjoy our time on the mat and the experience of being part of the community. Fernando is a talented and committed instructor who cares deeply about the progress and well-being of all his students. As an accomplished black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he knows what he is talking about, but he also has the teaching skills to communicate lessons to his students.
Gary Ritter
Great place to train. Instruction is top notch and very detailed. Professor Fernando Vera is a highly active competitor but welcomes anyone with any training goals. Effective warm-ups, great time management, intense sparring and just an overall fantastic energy on the mats.
Anthony Militello
Not only is FLVBJJ a great place to learn for people just starting out in Jiu-Jitsu; it is great for people who have had some level of training and are looking to get their BJJ to the next level. Fernando offers instruction for beginners as well as people looking to compete at high levels of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I've had experiences at others schools before and Fernando's detailed instruction as his intensity for competition driven students has brought out the best in my performance. I am definitely happy I made the move to Fernando Loor Vera Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Ahmed El-Sayed
I would like to give Fernando a five star rating testimonial. My son has been attending his classes for the past year and I can see A big change in his personality, leadership and physical skills. More than anything I would like to point out that Fernando strives in providing a friendly environment for any type of person. He has established a very unique student-mentor, friend connection level with my son, that in today's money hungry institutions seems to be hard to find. A true black belt top of the line athlete that takes every student a priority regardless of age, strength or skill level. Thank you for making my son part of your family.

CLASSES | options and information about our programs and classes

Beginner


 

This class is for WHITE BELTS ONLY and is taught wearing a gi.  The gi is the traditional uniform of a Jiu Jitsu student. The curriculum of the beginner class consists of fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that anyone is capable of learning and participating in. There will be some level of street self-defense that will be taught in this class as well. Program is the first level for adults (over the age of 16) beginning their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training. Students will learn the fundamentals of BJJ and basic techniques. Class structure is formed around a warm-up, a lesson in technique and partner training to practice the technique from the lesson. For anyone first beginning in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, this class is mandatory and you may only participate in the Advanced classes when Professor Vera deems you ready.

Intermediate / Advance


 

Our Advanced Jiu Jitsu classes explore a broader range of techniques and positions while still enforcing at its core the basics of BJJ. In addition to teaching more complex grappling, throwing, clinching and submission techniques, these classes are more intense and designed for serious competitors. Professor Vera will teach you a methodical approach to gaining control of an opponent, transitioning to a dominant position and work to apply either a choke or a submission via joint manipulation. You will learn ways to overcome larger and stronger opponents using technique and leverage that are essential in competitive fighting and self-defense. This class is by invitation only.

NO GI


 

Classes in No Gi are very similar in nature to standard Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, although students do not wear gis. This lack of gi increases the amount of speed and athleticism required, and it also limits the sweeping and submission options of the competitors.

No gi training focuses on self defense techniques as opposed to competition techniques, allowing the student to be comfortable in their training and knowledge in a non-competition environment

 

KIDS


 

Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is aimed at kids 6-14 years old and integrates physical education and self-defense technique with conditioning and skill-building games aimed at improving coordination, motor skills, agility and flexibility. Our program helps young students develop important character traits and values, including:

  • Excelling in Academics & Athletics      • Confidence
  • Goal Setting                                        • Discipline
  • Leadership Qualities                           • Courage
