  • “While finishing my studies in Farmington, CT I had the pleasure of meeting Rob Magao and the guys at Bushido Jiu- Jitsu Academy (Manchester Brazilian Jiu-jitsu). I have been a life long student of the martial arts and have studied everything from Tae Kwon Do to classical Jujutsu to Thai boxing. I knew that I had found a gem in Rob’s academy soon after my first workout. Rob has the unique ability to force all of his students to check their egos at the door and train as a family. His unique background of law enforcement, real world self defense experience and sport-BJJ-training allows him to reach out to everyone he trains, regardless of their goals and desires. Whether you are looking for a traditional martial arts experience or are looking to get involved in competition BJJ, Bushido is the premiere academy in central Connecticut. I will always be grateful for the positive experiences (and great workouts) I had with Rob and the rest of the great instructors at Bushido.”
