Opening in 2012 Fightzone London is fast becoming an east London fighting institution. No matter your level Fightzone London is for everyone, a fun, friendly atmosphere where you can get fit and improve your skills. Fightzone originally was a well known and respected martial arts academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Founded by 9x world jiu jitsu champion Ricardo Vieira, in the mid 2000′s, the academy quickly prospered into one of the top gyms in Brazil. This success has spread to other corners of the world and has now reached the United Kingdom. Fightzone London was started by two good friends, Marco Canha, the head instructor of the academy and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under the aforementioned Ricardo Vieira and James Roach.
