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

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