Jiu-Jitsu is a highly effective, widely proven form of self defense. It has been adopted by professional sport fighters and the military. For the average person, learning Jiu-Jitsu is the best way to prepare for something most of us never anticipate: a situation in which our physical safety is threatened. For this reason, the Valente Brothers School of Self Defense in Coral Gables specializes in bringing the benefits of Jiu-Jitsu to every day people in our community.
The Valente Brothers School of Coral Gables is owned by James Robertson (Jimmy) and Burak Eyilike. Jimmy has been studying Jiu-Jitsu for over 20 years. He learned directly from Pedro Valente. Pedro Valente and his brothers learned self defense under the Grand Master Hélio Gracie, the founder of the martial art Gracie Jiu-Jitsu also known as the Hélio Gracie Self-Defense System. Burak has been learning Jiu-Jitsu from Pedro Valente for over 15 years. Jimmy Robertson is a black belt professor of Valente Brothers Jiu-Jitsu and Burak is a certified instructor of Valente Brothers Jiu-Jitsu.

The Valente Brothers school in Coral Gables teaches techniques to defend against all types of street aggression including bare hand, club, knife, and gun attacks. Students learning self-defense at the school range in age from young children to adult professionals. The self defense school caters to everyday people, not just tough guys and MMA fighters.
The Valente Brothers Youth program
The Valente Brothers School of Coral Gables’ Youth program focuses a great deal of attention to the development of self-esteem: the physical, emotional and mental well being of children.
