BUILDING A LEGACY BEYOND THE COMPETITION ARENA
Andre Galvao made his name competing at the highest levels of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, traveling around the world to stand on the top of the podium of the sport’s biggest events. However, rather than simply being content as one of the greatest jiu-jitsu athletes of all time, Professor Galvao has also built numerous successful business ventures. These include:
The Atos Jiu-Jitsu Academy in San Diego, California, is widely considered to be the best jiu-jitsu academy in the world, with more than active 600 students. Practitioners from far and wide have moved to Southern California specifically to train with Professor Galvao and his incredible team, and to compete under the Atos flag.
In addition to the Atos Jiu-Jitsu Academy Headquarters, Professor Galvao has Atos affiliate academies in 21 countries around the world, including: the United States, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Austria, Sweden, Germany, Romania, Spain, Ukraine, Israel, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, China, South Korea, Philippines, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama, and Paraguay.
The Atos brand has become internationally renowned. Due to the high demand of Atos branded merchandise, both from affiliate academies as well as practitioners who are simply avid fans of Professor Galvao and his team, the Atos Shop was created as an online resource for all Atos-branded gis, apparel, and related products.
The Atos Online Academy is one of the best and most comprehensive online jiu-jitsu training platforms in the market. With nearly 4,000 videos, and more uploaded almost daily, the Atos Online Academy provides practitioners 24/7 access to world-class instruction from Professor Galvao and his team, no matter where they live.
Professor Galvao co-authored, with Kevin Howell, one of the best-selling jiu-jitsu instructional books in the history of the sport: “Drill to Win: 12 Months to Better Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.” He is in the process of publishing another book, which will be a comprehensive instructional guide for white belts around the world to attain a level of jiu-jitsu to the standards of the Atos Jiu-Jitsu Academy.
Each year, Professor Galvao gives between 20 and 30 seminars around the world. These are hosted by Atos Jiu-Jitsu affiliate academies as well as non-affiliated academies. Additionally, Professor Galvao has been invited as a guest instructor to several high-profile jiu-jitsu camps, lasting anywhere from three to five days long.
Additionally, Professor Galvao has partnered with numerous BJJ gi and gear, apparel, supplement, and strength & conditioning companies over the course of his career. As one of the greatest jiu-jitsu competitors of all time, Professor Galvao’s image has provided his sponsors with a lucrative platform in which to put their businesses in the global spotlight, providing them with a direct avenue to success in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu market.
