Albert Hughes

I was first introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 2002 through a friend. I was instantly attracted to the effectiveness of the techniques that he would show me. In 2004 I decided to make jiu jitsu my primary focus. Since then I have been training full time and competing multiple times per year all over the US and internationally. I received my black belt from THE MAN Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu in February 2011.

I remain a student of the art and always will. These days I am focused on sharing my experience with my students and grooming a jiu jitsu army to represent our flag. I’m an easy guy to talk to. If you want to know more come train and ask.
