His teaching, coaching, and mentoring on the mats has helped more off the mats to be a better working professional and husband. He is committed to each of his students as practitioners of Jiu-Jitsu as well as making them better individuals. If you are looking to be a competitor in Jiu-Jitsu, Professor Monteiro's techniques and tactics will help you stand on the podium. I fully trust and believe in Andre Monteiro."

"Andre is a great teacher as well as a legitimately black belt from Brazil with competition experience. I have been to a lot of schools over my years and Andre is by far one of the most humble and down to earth instructors I have ever met. I would highly suggest taking a class with Andre. Also a big plus is his command of the English language is EXCELLENT!"
You guys already know Andre is a great guy but I just wanted to mention my updated experiences. I've been around the block in relation to bjj and we are all very lucky to have an instructor like Andre. There are a lot of unscrupulous individuals in this art/sport and to find an instructor with real skill that actually cares about teaching and his students is extremely rare. Personally I don't think I would have stopped training so many times if I had a coach like Andre from the beginning."
