Julio Binda • Founder & Head Coach

Hello there! Prof. Julio here, 

I was born in Teofilo Otoni, Minas Gerais, Brazil in 1981. I started practicing Jiu Jitsu when I was 19 years old with master Joao Eugenio Caxambu, leader of the team Jiu Jikan. 

I came to USA in 2005 as a Purple belt and trained under Prof Roberto Maia (Boston Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) from whom I received my Black Belt in 2012.

Binda Jiu Jitsu was established in 2007 in Haverhill, MA. 

In 2013 we became affiliated with Zenith BJJ with Presidents Robert Drysdale and Rodrigo Cavaca. In 2021 I received my third degree black belt under Prof Robert Drysdale.

I had the privilege to participate in Kurt Osiander and Rodrigo Cavaca DVDs filmed by BJJ fanatics and BJJ superdeals in Boston, MA.

As a competitor and IBJJF Referee in various tournaments, my goal is to stay sharp and up to date to help my students achieve their goals. 

If you're looking to change your life, you are in the right direction! Contact us for a FREE week trial. All I can say is that BJJ is highly addictive! No matter what age, you will find a place here with us! 

See You On The Mats!
