Team Jucão Instructors

Team Jucao New York was founded in October of 2015. Professor Nels Larson and Professor Alan Gatoff began instructing students in a rented space of a small fitness studio and quickly gained a strong student following. As he needed a much larger space to accommodate the rapidly growing student base, Professor Larson and Gatoff opened what is now our current location in Scotia, NY.

Team Jucao New York has quickly become one of the most respected Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academies in the area. Team Jucao is dedicated to teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a safe and clean place where you can bring your family and friends. Team Jucao is led by two IBJJF certified black belts under 6th-degree black belt Professor Ailson “Jucao” Brites.
