The Hampton Roads area is the new home to Black Belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Ben Eaton. Ben has been studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since 1997. In 2000, Ben began a friendship with 6X World Jiu-Jitsu Champion, 2X Abu Dhabi Submission Grappling World Champion Saulo Ribeiro and his younger brother (multiple time World Champion) Alexandre “Xande” Ribeiro.
In 2005 Ben established Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu South Bend, becoming the only RJJ affiliate in Indiana. In 2009 Ben, received the honor of becoming the 6th American to be promoted to the rank of black belt by Saulo Ribeiro. In September 2010, Ben relocated to Newport News with his wife, Heidi, who is currently serving active duty in the U.S. Coast Guard.
Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu Hampton Roads will offer a full schedule of adult and children classes. Classes will be held at the CrossFit Hampton Roads facility (104 Production Dr) in south Yorktown.
Ben has a hands-on, passionate, detail-oriented teaching style that makes every student feel like they are getting a private lesson. His main goal is to not just pass on the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but also the “BJJ lifestyle.”
