JBM Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy was founded when the doors of the first location opened in Burlington, NJ in 2007. Professor Brian McPherson opened the gym to share the wealth of knowledge he had gained as a student under Renzo Gracie and Ricardo Almeida as well as his 20+ years in law enforcement.

McPherson’s training began in the 90’s under Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Vale Tudo legend Master Renzo Gracie as well one of Gracie’s top students UFC Veteran and former King of Pancrase Ricardo Almeida. McPherson dedicated himself to the martial art of Jiu Jitsu and earned his black belt from Prof. Ricardo Almeida in 2006 and more recently his first degree from Master Renzo Gracie soon after the opening of the Mt.Holly, NJ JBM Academy.
