Manny Soares

Professor | Owner

Professor Manny Soares started Manny Soares Brazilian Jiu Jitu in 2011 with one simple goal, one fundamental idea; to change people’s lives and their lifestyles. Since then, he has single-handedly changed his community in which lives have changed for the better, and kids have built character.

Professor Manny began his journey in Jiu-Jitsu with a simple invitation. One of his best friends invited him to a class, and to his surprise, a much smaller guy took his best friend down (this “small” guy is Professor Manny’s master today!), and this spurred him to jump right in!

To this day, one of Professor Manny’s largest accomplishments is the fact that parents will come up to him, and thank him for helping their child become the person that they are today.
