One of the world’s most famous BJJ practitioners, Ze Radiola teaches in Recife, Brasil. In 2004, he asked one of his students, Max Carvalho, to travel to Hungary and start teaching this gentle art. Max formed Gracie Barra Hungary, which later became ZR Team Hungary. Under his leadership, BJJ gained popularity, which resulted in growing number of teams and competitions throughout the country.
PIT BJJ was founded in 2010 and belongs to the ZR family.
Our trainings are led by Levente Varga, who started practicing BJJ when it first was introduced in this country. He was one of the very first few people in Hungary to compete in MMA. After a highly successful career, he switched the world of cages to mats, fighting on submission grappling and bjj tournaments. Besides his impressive competition record, he trained in several foreign countries and training camps.
We try to create a welcoming, friendly environment where everybody is respected and treated equally. If you are trying to bully people, you are looking at the wrong gym/ you should be looking elsewhere.
We have close ties to other clubs; we often cross train with them. Several competitions are available throughout the year. If you would like to measure yourself and your progress, there are plenty of opportunities.
Our team members often organize other free time activities, such as camping, hiking or eating-out. We attend several seminars together throughout the year also.
