This guy loves Jiu Jitsu! This means he also loves his students. Whether his student is 4yrs old or 40yrs+ his heart is the same, passionate about making sure each student leaves the mat more improved after each class. He makes sure we are properly warmed up, he uses drills to improve our flexibility and muscle memory, and he always teaches techniques that make sense and have a high probability of working in an actual match. He actively competes with success and uses the techniques he teaches to us in competition.

Amazing coach. I think everyone has already said the key things that make a great instructor. His passion for BJJ, his attention to details, patience, and skill make him great instructor. Federico changed the way I look at Jujitsu. Every person that meets or works with Federico will quickly see why he deserves high praise.

Coach fede is a really great coach. He always makes sure you understand how and why you are doing the technique. I look forward to training with him more as my limited exposure has already increased my understanding and helped fill in holes in my game.

I was just searching for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Normally the top websites are full of garbage.
