DEFTAC-RIBEIRO Jiu-Jitsu Nationals: Set to Kick Off This March!


The First Ever DEFTAC-RIBEIRO JIU-JITSU NATIONALS is Set To Kick Off this March 25th, 8am @ The Palace Pool Club!

DEFTAC-Ribeiro Jiu-jitsu Philippines, more popularly known as DEFTAC. They are Southeast Asia’s first Brazilian Jiu-jitsu team and concurrently Asia’s largest and most successful Jiu-jitsu organization! Established in 1996, they started the Jiu-jitsu sport movement in the Philippines and for more than two decades, they have successfully reigned as overall champions at every competition held in the region through the years.

The team is founded and home to the first home-grown Filipino black belt,  head coach Professor Alvin Aguilar, as well as 6 other home grown black belts and 20 brown belts – making them the only team in the Philippines with the over 25 highest ranking jiu-jitsu practicioners.

They are also home to hundreds of National and International Jiu-jitsu champions, including Asian Open Champions our founder Alvin Aguilar and Kat Siozon; first Filipino Jiu-jitsu World Champions like May Masuda (Alvin Aguilar's spouse)  and Worlds Silver Medalist, Kimberly Custodio.

In the last 2 years, they have focused all efforts to ensure that our growth is sustained through spreading out their sphere of influence; bringing their jiu-jitsu, their team and their family around the whole country. They embarked on a mission they call, #DEFTACNATION, which turned to creating leaders out of their hundreds of it's members, and sending them to cover and teach in all areas and regions throughout Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

Much to the success of this mission, they’ve managed to create 45 chapters across the nation, making them legitimately and the largest affiliation and most successful team in Asia.

Now that they have the numbers, they've grown large enough to hold their very own in-house tournament, which they have dubbed the 2017 Deftac-Ribeiro Jiu-jitsu Nationals. It will be featuring competition between the best of their team and family from all 45 chapters in all 5 jiu-jitsu belt ranks; it’s never been done before, and they’re looking at making this historical event huge!
