Welcome to Mineiro BJJ

Mineiro Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was founded in 2021 by Marcelo "Mineiro" Bonani. Mineiro BJJ was created to positively influence the everyday life and character development of children and adults in the East Bay, Emeryville, Alamo, and Walnut Creek communities. We believe it is essential to share the countless benefits of choosing to become a jiu jitsu practitioner. BJJ is a proven method of self-defense and the BJJ journey will implement healthy lifestyle choices and improve the quality of day-to-day life.
