Brazilian jiu-jitsu and submission grappling has been in Israel since 1995 and I was the first one in Israel to start bjj.  In 1995 I arrived to NYC and studied under Renzo Gracie the best man and teacher in the world. In 2005 I competed in ADCC and since then I am trying to bring ADCC to Israel and it is all sport no politics.

There is a couple of jiu jitsu schools in Israel,  the renzo Gracie schools and royler Gracie, royce Gracie and Gracie barra.  There is a MMA channel in cable TV so the sport is developing and we do a lot of events.
