Owner and Academy Professor — Chris Lisciandro, 3nd Degree Black Belt.
For over 20 years, Chris Lisciandro has been practicing martial arts. The California native who was born in Santa Monica and raised in Sherman Oaks, started practicing martial arts as a young child and took his first boxing lesson at the age of 12. Always looking for a new challenge, Chris took up Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in 1996, training under the renowned 5th Degree Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Martial Artist, Renato Magno from Sao Paul, Brazil. During his training, Chris received numerous awards, many of which are listed down below. In 2005, Chris received his black belt from the hands of his head instructor, Professor Renato Magno.
Chris wanted to teach others the ‘gentle art,’ and opened his own academy in Sherman Oaks.

Kids Club Program Belt Structure: Unlike other programs, we here at the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club do not give false pretense under our belt-structure. Every student will always be given a promotion thats 'earned.' A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu youth 'green belt' is equivalent to a youth black-belt in other martial art programs.
