    Roberto "Cyborg" Abreu black belt Jake Mackenzie is available to do seminars in North America and Europe this fall and winter. Jake is an outstanding competitor, having already won the CBJJE South American and Central West Brazilian Championships, the CBJJO Worlds, and the Copa Pitbull Championships as a black belt despite having only received his black belt in June.

    Aside from being a great competitor, Jake has proven himself as a great training partner and instructor. Considered one of the most influential parts of the team at his home gym of Fight Sports in Miami, Florida, Jake also has extensive seminar and guest instructor experience--including the gyms of UFC vet Roli Delgado and BJJ Phenom Ryan Hall.

    From a personal standpoint, I can tell you that Jake really is a great instructor. Roli brought him into our gym for a month and he really improved our games. His half guard is on another level and his patience to teach even me shows you that he can teach anyone from white belt to black belt.

    Please contact me if interested! Thank you!

    +1 for an awesome guy! Hopefully he'll be coming back up to VA again. We had him out for a week last time and it was great. And then he came again and stayed at ryans for a few weeks too.

    Anyone that has a chance should meet and train with Jake.

    jake is an awesome guy and a must have a seminar. The deep half guard sweeps and backtakes will help you immediately. Great communicator too. it cleared up so much to learn from him.

    Jake McKenzie is so certified B.A. He is the epitome of stylin on bammas. I learned many half gurds and back takers from him. I hope something happens and he comes back to 50/50 later so he is there longer while I am there. He is one of my favorite people and is SO handsome.

    "Jake helped me and my team a ton when he was here training. He is a very good teacher, something I can't say for everyone. I really do reccomend him to anyone who wants to get better at their half guard and overall bjj game."

    You should let me know next time he's at westside or somewhere relatively close to NWA.
