Professor Anton Gotsmanov moved to United States from Russia in 2000 and started his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey in 2007 as a college student looking for a new hobby. Since that day Jiu-Jitsu has become his biggest passion. He competed extensively through all the levels, eventually achieving Black Belt under Daniel Tavares in August of 2017 on the podium of Master Worlds IBJJF Championship. Anton thoroughly enjoys teaching Jiu-Jitsu to children and adults. He has been able to help many people become better fighters as well as achieve optimal health and body composition through sharing Jiu-Jitsu and nutritional knowledge. Anton particularly enjoys breaking down techniques and how they apply to different body types and styles so if you are either a beginner or already an advanced practitioner, he can take you to an even higher level! Whether it is a private one on one lesson or a big group session, you can always expect the same positive energy from him day in and day out!
