In his new instructional masterclass, “Mastering Judo for Jiu-Jitsu Domination”, 15X Black Belt Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and Judo Black Belt, Andre Galvao, takes us through his “Judo for Jiu-Jitsu Domination” system.

Throughout his career, Prof Galvao’s stand-up game was both highly-respected and feared by his opponents. In this course, he breaks down the elements that have made him such a dominant force on the feet.

This is the first instructional that Galvao has ever shot with his World Champion daughter, Sarah Galvao. Towards the end of the instructional, Andre and Sarah are also joined by Atos student, Steffano Cavalcante.

Galvao breaks down the principles and tactics that have made him a dominant force on the mats. Whether you're a seasoned grappler or a novice, Prof Galvao’s course provides the tools you need to enhance your takedown game.

Galvao’s in-depth knowledge of Judo has allowed him to create a stand-up system specifically for Jiu-Jitsu. Having the knowledge of what Judokas are trained to do – and trained NOT to do – means that Andre’s system capitalizes on their weaknesses. Throughout this course, he shares this knowledge to give Jiu-Jitsu practitioners the upper hand against a Judoka in their gym, or in competition!

This is a new form of Judo, one specifically designed for Jiu-Jitsu, and one that is not taught so comprehensively elsewhere.

Are you ready to start dominating the stand-up game?


"I began training Judo before I ever trained Jiu-Jitsu. And every time I incorporated more Judo into my training camps, the more success I would have (I’d also see incredible gains in my grips, strength and cardio!)

As an advanced Judoka myself (Black Belt), and because of all the experience I have fighting at the highest level of competition, I’ve created a system of Judo that works specifically for Jiu-Jitsu – and streamlines the learning process (no need to drill every position 1,000 times to make them work for you!)

I’m also able to think like a Judoka, and so my Judo system is designed to easily beat Judokas at their own game – by surprising them with techniques and grips that aren’t legal in their sport.

I taught this same system of Judo to Sarah over the last year. Every morning before the advanced class at Atos HQ, we’d work for an hour on her Judo. And just look at the results! She won an almost-unheard-of IBJJF Grand Slam victory (winning double gold in all the major tournaments last year – Europeans, Pans, Brasileiro and Worlds!)

She also won gold in both the Juvenile and Adult divisions of the Abu Dhabi World Pro (fighting against Purple Belts in the Adult division!)

These mornings training this system together created so many special moments together every week. I saw Sarah’s stand-up game progress and develop insanely (to the point that she was confident enough to take on a Judoka on the feet in the adult division of the World Pro a few months ago.)

I wanted to find some way to memorialize these experiences with my daughter, and help students master the most important Judo moves for Jiu-Jitsu.

Then the solution came to me: why not create a course with Sarah to showcase this Judo system to the world 🔥

And so this course was born!"


-The secret grips and movements that Judokas are trained NOT to do. In some cases, these moves are even illegal in Judo, and so even a highly-skilled Judoka will have no defense against these attacks
-Galvao’s powerful, and very simple-to-learn, grip-breaking system. When you control the grips, you control the fight on the feet
-Several concepts to ensure that your opponents are constantly off-balance and back-pedaling away from your relentless attacks.
-“Freeze” your partner with Galvao’s “Elsa Skills”. Watch as Galvao channels his inner Ice Queen to take down opponents with a touch of “Frozen” flair!
