I have been involved in all facets of Martial Arts for over 35yrs., and have trained several Champions in all disciplines. I have trained in Judo, Karate, Thai Boxing and Boxing and had the opportunity to train and work with some top level fighters as well as trainers. I currently train specialized “Defensive Tactics” to police officers, correction officers and federal law enforcement personnel. Over the last several years I had the opportunity to meet many Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners and experts and by far the most generous and unselfish person I’ve met is Gabriel “Gladiador” Santos. I met him several years ago and helped him train for a fight and we have been friends ever since.
Gabriel Gladiator possesses a quiet demeanor and self confidence as well as superior skill in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He is always willing to help and spend time with his students to ensure success in the art he teaches. Western Massachusetts is very fortunate to have Gabriel Santos in our area. Gabriel “Gladiator” Santos has world class Jiu Jitsu Skills that are well documented and he is a proud and humble man and I am honored to call him my friend and Jiu Jitsu instructor.
