Our family, and Coach Alex Silva Ruas, here at ASR BJJ are always happy to share any and all exciting news of our family’s achievements. Our team at Alex Silva Ruas Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has, yet again, received some incredible recognition!  All of us here who dedicate our time and efforts to the amazing art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu achieve personal goals all the time. Once in a while we have an individual who shines a little brighter because they put in the time and hard work and have the courage to face their challenges mentally and physically. This is not only a reflection of the student but also ASR Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This time the recognition comes all the way from the US Congress in Washington DC via our local representative, Jeff Miller. ASR Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches not only self-defense but respect, discipline, and confidence, all of which can help boys & girls and men & women of all ages be the best that they can be on and off of the mat. ASR Jiu-Jitsu can help make the world we live in a better place…one student at a time.


“We want to thank our local members of our community Mrs. Donna Tucker and staff at the Santa Rosa County Chamber of Commerce SRCC for giving us the ability to thrive and grow and offering limitless advice and guidance in our efforts to reach out to the community. Also our State Representative, Jeff Miller, and the men and women of Congress and our government for taking their time to recognize us here at ASR. Alex Silva Ruas and the ASR family will continue to make you proud and represent empathy, passion, and humility through the practice of ASR Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.” – Alex Silva Ruas, 4th Degree Black Belt, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
