Improve Your Game with online coaching
Build you skills, improve your game, and increase your confidence through personalised online coaching sessions with Professor Paulo Guimaraes,
World Champion and 5th Degree Black-Belt Professor Paulo Guimaraes is the Head Instructor at ROOTS BJJ and the founder of the NSW BJJ federation. He is the highest black-belt in Australia on the IBJJF black-belt list. With over three decades of teaching and competition experience, Paulo knows how to identify and provide clear instructions on how to improve your BJJ, whether it is for training or for competition. As one of Australia's most highly decorated BJJ athletes, Paulo is experienced with all levels of BJJ. He has trained people to be world champions, pan pacific champions, national champions, and state champions. He has coached athletes at both amateur and professional levels. As a cage fighter and pro-surfer, he is also used to competing under pressure, and he is generous sharing his competition insights. Paulo is also just as comfortable teaching white-belts in the gym who are just starting out.
ABOUT THE COACHING
Many students have come to me over the years for personal coaching when they feel like they need something to shift in their game. Maybe they have stopped learning, maybe they are not progressing, maybe they have been on the same belt for years, or maybe they never seem to win a fight no matter how hard they try. These are all common training issues in sport and martial arts. If you feel like this is you, or if you feel like you simply want to improve your game, progress faster, or get personalised coaching, then individual coaching sessions with me are the way to go.
I will work with you to highlight your areas of strength, identify your areas of weakness, and develop a personal plan to improve your game and understanding of BJJ. It does not matter if you are just starting out or if you are already an experienced BJJ athlete, there is always something that you can work on. In the sessions, I will provide you with insights in to how fights work, and will help you to improve your BJJ mindset all from the convenience of your own home or gym in Australia or anywhere in the world.
Personal coaching is open to all students and all belts. Sessions can be done in English or Portuguese.
All coaching sessions are currently being run online.

Celebrating the year that was 2020
While many people want to put 2020 behind them, we had a lot of good things going on this year at ROOTS Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
On Sunday 6 December, we celebrated our 20-year anniversary of ROOTS Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This was a day for all members of our team to celebrate and be celebrated. We had a number of belts given on the day, but here we would like to acknowledge our new black belts:
Aleks Stojkovski, ROOTS Milperra
David Chow, ROOTS Hurstville
Denis Angelkovski, ROOTS Milperra
Bruno Giordano, ROOTS Warringah
Stoyan Koteski, ROOTS St George
Arash Shafiezadeh, ROOTS St George
We welcomed Mihail to the ROOTS St George Dojo. Congratulations Rob and Maja on your beautiful baby boy!
We had new dojos open in Matraville, Botany, and Avalon. Looking forward to the open mats at Avalon when we can get to the Northern Northern Beaches, or we can just stop in and visit Brad at Paterson's Pies.
The Erskineville dojo moved locations. The dojo is looking great, Trefon!
We got sponsored by a surfboard company! Yugen Surfboards sponsors some of our events and provides a discount to all ROOTS BJJ team members. We even have two Yugen ROOTS BJJ team riders! Contact Federico at Yugen (email@example.com) for more information.
We also made the brave move to open our online ROOTS apparel shop. It has only taken us a decade and a lot of frustration, but we got there in the end.
We all had a go at online teaching! As awkward as it was to do jiu-jitsu and even yoga in our garages, loungerooms, and home offices, it was great to see you all!
Looking Ahead to 2021
As we move in to 2021, we are looking forward to getting back to competitions! We have all missed competing. Looking forward to getting back on top of the podium and winning loads of gold medals as is our tradition.
We are also looking forward to seeing our team grow with a number of new gyms on the horizon.
We have a new app coming this year that will provide ROOTS members with access to fitness, diet, and training programs; online courses; kids' programs; and lots more.
Keep training hard! Set your goals high! See you on the mats.
