Team Zingano was founded by Master Mauricio Zingano, a 3rd Degree BJJ Black Belt (Under Carlos “Caique” Elias) and native of Brazil who taught for over 20 years and learned directly from the Gracie family.

This means that you are taught in the same way that Master Zingano was taught by Master Helio Gracie and his sons Rorion, Rickson, and Royce Gracie and other leading Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu experts such as Carlos “Caique” Elias, Fabio Santos, and many more!

Today, Team Zingano is led by Professor Matt Simms in Broomfield and Professor Hans Thompson in Brighton
