 In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you will learn the skills of taking an opponent to the ground, controlling one’s opponent, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds.


Oceans Brazilian Jiu-Jitus is currently working with Master Royler Gracie on joining the Gracie Humaita team as an official affiliate. While we are NOT yet an affiliate; we are hoping to announce it very soon.

It’s a very special moment for me, since I have been a Gracie Humaita competitor for many years, under Master Megaton (Gracie Humaita Phoenix).


Practice one of the most effective forms of self-defense in the world, while meeting new friends and having a great time!
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the opponent.

The Physical and Mental Benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is more than just a sport. It’s more than a martial art. It’s a way to change your life.

The fact that Brazilian jiu-jitsu will change your body cannot be denied. You can physically see your body changing with every day or week. What you can’t see is the improvements in your overall health as a result of training.
Beyond any physical improvements that come as a result of Brazilian jiu-jitsu are the mental improvements that are often overlooked. First, the process of learning a technique requires as much mental activity as it does physical.

Professor Leandro Massaro

My name is Leandro Massaro, 46 years old, fitness coach, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black-belt under legendary Wellington “Megaton” Dias. I have been married since 2008, and I’m the proud dad of an amazing 11 year old little girl.

I have been a dedicated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu student, practitioner, and athlete since 2000; earning medals in some of Jiu-Jitsu’s most prominent tournaments, including: Masters World Championship, American Nationals, Pan-American Championship, Arizona State, and Asian Open Championship.

2011 IBJJF No-Gi World Tournament in California as a Brown Belt (Master Division).

🏆 2012-13 ranked top 5 in the world (Brown Belt – Master 2 Division), both in Gi and No-Gi.

🏆 2021 ended the season ranked Top 10 Black Belt Middle Weight Master 4 Division (out of 152 athletes), and Top 50 in the overall Master 4 Black Belt Division (out of 729 athletes). 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has always played a crucial role in my life; it has literally helped me become what I am today; it to pushed me to get out of my comfort zone and shaped me into a better version of myself; someone healthier, happier, and more confident.

Over the past 21 years, Jiu-Jitsu has helped me forge friendships that will last a lifetime. I have had the privilege of working, training, and competing with some of the best in the sport.

I’m a firm believer that hard work, dedication, honesty, and integrity are the pillars for success.
