The history of our school begins with the Jimenez family that started Studio Jiu-Jitsu.

A World Champion family of World Class Jiu-Jitsu who’s lineage is is traced back from Helio Gracie to Jorge Patino, and Romero Jacare.

Raul Jimenez originally opened up his Academy as “Team Gacho” in the late 2000’s and later changing the name to “Studio 76 JiuJitsu”.

Raul and his family team began taking the competition by storm becoming:

  • Pan American champion at Purple, Brown, Black
  • Master Worlds Black Belt Champion
  • No-Gi Black Belt World Champion
  • European Black belt champion

And the list continues. Rauls son, Roberto Jimenez has also went on to make many notable achievements such as:

  • 1st Place IBJJF World Championship (2018** purple)
  • 1st Place IBJJF World Championship NoGi (2019* brown)

By 2017, the Success of Raul and his family led them the opportunity to expand Studio Jiujitsu to Las Vegas, the fight capitol of the world.

Upon moving his family out to Las Vegas, Raul passed his gym to Luis Diaz, who at the time was head instructor of the Wrestling program at Studio 76 JiuJitsu
