Testimonials

Rodrigo is the best BJJ professor i have ever met. I have been training brazilian jiu jitsu under Rodrigo for almost 10 years. During this time i have been amazed by his skill in Jiu Jitsu as well as his ability to teach. His students are exceptional and under his example, have become an extended family. His skill teaching bjj to adults is matched with his skill with the kids and teen classes, creating a safe place for people from all walks of life to learn jiu jitsu. During this time he created the Fight for a kid charity, to help bring hope to the children back in brazil. The charity continues to grow, and he has brought these wonderful kids into all of our lives. I am truly blessed to have found Rodrigo, Akxe BJJ and the fight for a kid program. They and enriched my life in ways i never expected.

This is the best gym I’ve been apart of. Jiu Jitsu is inherently complex. Having a world-class professor, like Rodrigo, makes it much easier to learn. He takes the time to explain not only the small, often overlooked details, but why those detail mater. More importantly, his gym truly feels like a family. Everyone there can train hard without fear of getting hurt or bullied. Good gyms are very hard to come by, I’m very thankful I’ve found this one.

..I think what makes Jiu Jitsu with Rodrigo so awesome and special is the family like atmosphere that you receive as being part of his classes. Everyone is there to help you out and to answer questions you may have. No one no matter what color belt they are or how long they have been doing it turns you away just because you are white belt and not only that a female. My kids have learned from Rodrigo to be respectful and confident in themselves. They look forward to going to class and to learning. Rodrigo is so patient with the kids and works with them to make sure they are learning from the class and also enjoying it. They are not handed strips to move up a belt, they have to learn and show that they understand the techniques and it takes time before you are promoted, so it gives my kids discipline they need to learn a very special skill. I am happy they get to work with Rodrigo and I hope that they continue to want to do Jiu Jitsu as they continue to grow. I know I want to continue to do it for as long as I can and wish I had the opportunity to start it much sooner.

    Professor Rodrigo is the best! I’ve been training jiu jitsu here for almost a year and it’s been a great experience. As a woman it’s taught me great self defense techniques that I think is important for all women to know

    Rodrigo is an amazing Jiujitsu instructor. I have been training for a long time and I have to say he is special and we are so lucky to have him here in Westlake Village. I am training with him along with my two teenage children. They love it also. The culture and class structure are amazing. I couldn’t recommend a better instructor.

    Professor Rodrigo Carvalho is the best of the best. I have been training here for over three years along with my two kids and can attest to the professionalism and knowledge that is brought to every class. Perfect mix of discipline, fun and safety brought to the kids classes. On the adult side, be it your first day or a higher belt, there is always something to learn and work on. Look no further!

    For the past eight years, I have had the privilege of training with Rodrigo. His extensive knowledge and passion for teaching BJJ makes him a highly sought out instructor from BJJ hobbyists with no prior grappling experience to professional MMA fighters. In addition to training adults, his kindness and patience make him an excellent instructor for kids and teens. The community he has built truly feels like family and is always welcoming of new members. If you have never trained before, I highly recommend taking your first class with Rodrigo.
