Gilroy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy was founded in 2010 by Carlos “Wookie” Melo and John Magoo Villarruel on the belief that through Jiu Jitsu/ Martial Arts we can make the world a better place. In 2016 Magoo moved to Reno and Morgan Chappell partnered up with Carlos. Together, Carlos and Morgan form the current leadership of Gilroy BJJ. Both Morgan and Carlos are also law enforcement officers and certified law enforcement defensive tactics instructors.
At Gilroy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy, we believe Jiu Jitsu is for EVERYONE! We offer a free, no obligation trial for California residents. We hope to see you soon!
