Meet Master Johnny Guerrero

Owner and Chief Instructor at
Guerrero Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts Academy
Black Belt

Master Guerrero's very first BJJ seminar was with two of the Greatest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Fighters of all time: World Champion Fighter Professor Rickson Gracie and Professor Royler Gracie. He was hooked from day one and his thirst for more knowledge led him to the art form known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He continued his training from White Belt to Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training with World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Abu Dhabi Champion Professor Royler Gracie and Black Belt Instructor Professor David Adiv where he became one of their top representatives for many years.

Master Guerrero translates into Warrior or War like Person in Portuguese and Latin. As a child, Master Guerrero had to live up to his name and began training martial arts. In 1998 he joined the United States Marine Corps., providing security in New York City during 9/11 attacks. He was then activated in the Marines twice and sent to Iraq where he served time during “Operation Iraqi Freedom” with 6th Communication Battalion. During his overseas stay, Master Guerrero taught Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the Marine Corps Martial Arts Combat Instructors. Guerrero has also conducted many Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts seminars around the world where he has taught both Marines and civilians alike.

Guerrero's almost predestined fate eventually led him to meet and train with the World Famous Champions & Instructors of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, “The Machado Brothers” and Professor Marcos Santos, whom he now represents, as the official New Jersey Representative for Master Rigan Machado. Master Guerrero attained his Black Belt rank under Master Rigan Machado and Professor Santos in 2005, but this would not stop his thirst for more knowledge.

Guerrero has also studied many different styles of Martial Arts, which include: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Marine Corps Martial Arts, FIGHT, Wu Ying So, Goshin Ryu Karate, Greco Roman Wrestling, Ninjitsu, Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Kickboxing and Wing Chun. Master Guerrero has attained a green belt in the Marine Corps Martial Arts program and is working towards his third black belt.

As an Instructor, Guerrero's teaching techniques were recognized by many martial artists. He has now dedicated over 20 years of his life to developing the most efficient way of teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to every individual student and instructor.

Today Guerrero concentrates on progressing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu into a new era. An era where using the martial arts to its fullest capacity. He uses Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu today to raise money for various charitable institutions, such as, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, the Valierie Fund and Fundraisers for Autism.

It seems that there is no slowing down in Master Guerrero's quest for knowledge and of spreading the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to all individuals in this world. He is a family man at home, combat hardened veteran of war, and a World Class Instructor respected by all who know him, but especially by his students who simply know him as Master.
