We visited Electric Jiu Jitsu a couple of times while in Cali for IBJJF tournaments. My friend Kurt and I stopped in to get in some training while in town and we were not disappointed at all. Electric Jiu Jitsu is Professor Joao Assis’s academy. A Checkmat 1st degree black belt. We were greeted just like some of the regular guys, made to feel right at home. The caliber of guys in this relatively small facility is top notch . As the live rolls began we pared up with the Electric Jiu Jitsu/Checkmat team members. The training was great, Professor Joao Assis was giving pointers to Kurt and I as we rolled with his team members there was no favoritism. Just great Jiu Jitsu. The training was intense with such skilled Jiu Jitsu practitioners on the mats of all belt levels. This made Electric Jiu Jitsu one of my favorite visited gyms so far .
The facility is smaller than most the gyms I have visited . One main mat area surrounded by break proof glass over the windows that line the mats . The gym is very clean and in great shape.It is located in a small strip type mall and was very easy to find.
1st degree Black belt under the living legend and leader of Checkmat BJJ team: Leonardo Vieira. He is a very decorated Jiu Jitsu competitor , ADCC Champion (2013) World Nogi Champion (2015, 2010) World Champion (2007 – purple belt division) World Cup Champion (2007 – open weight division, purple belt – CBJJE) Pan American Champion (2009 – open weight, brown belt division) .A very knowledgeable, friendly and respectful Professor.
If you are in Huntington Beach you should most definitely stop by and train with the team at Electric Jiu Jitsu . This place will give you all the tools to make you better if you take advantage of the opportunity. Checkmat is one of the best teams in the world and that shows at Electric Jiu Jitsu .
