  • “I do a lot of BJJ Seminars across the country. The Bushido Jiu-Jitsu Academy is a place that I love to visit. They have outstanding Jiu-jitsu but what is even better is they have outstanding people. You immediately feel the family atmosphere. I highly suggest you take lessons there!”

    BJJ Black Belt under Professor Pedro Sauer

  • “The most important decision a jiu jitsu practitioner can make is who they will train under. Luckily for those near Manchester, CT the decision is an easy one as they are lucky enough to have Pedro Sauer brown belt Rob Magao and his Bushido Jiu Jitsu academy right in town. As a law enforcement officer and fantastic jiu jitsu player, Rob is able to blend sport with realistic and effective self defense that he has had to put into action on several occasions due to his profession. More importantly, Rob is an fantastic guy who truly cares about his students and wants to see them succeed both on and off the mat. Quite simply if you live in the area and you go elsewhere you’re doing yourself a disservice.”

  • “My name is David Merkelson, and I am a BJJ/MMA, submission grappling instructor in Israel. When I go to visit my family in Connecticut, I always go out to see Rob Magao at his academy in Manchester, CT. Manchester Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (Bushido) has a warm, professional atmosphere perfect for training. I always feel at home, and I always find a wonderful training experience. I highly recommend Manchester Brazilian Jiu jitsu to anyone who is interested in training in BJJ, or just interested in getting into shape. Thanks Rob and all the guys at your academy!”
