Is he the one that made tapes on BJJ many years ago with Panther Productions called Kazeka Muniz' Brazilian Street Fighting Series and he was a white belt or blue belt at the time.

He has lots of footage competing on YouTube, no idea how his school is but he is a real good wrestler. I'll let someone else explain the other things because I'd leave out too many details.

I have seen him compete in Europe and he was very good.

So what if he did video when he was a white belt or blue belt.

His level nowaday is largely Blackbelt....

AwHood,
If you are looking for a place to train in the Antelope Valley, check out Elite Fight and Fitness in Lancaster. They are a new school owned by Ciao Malta and are under Alliance. They have BJJ classes throughout the day from 6 am to 8 pm. They also have Muay Thai and fitness kickboxing classes. They have a nice facility. They have a site on Facebook. They will give you a free week of training. I plan on going this month to start training after I recover from a work related injury. I went by the school and met with Ciao and he seemed very excited and passionate about the school and teaching BJJ. I am very excited to try it out.

I left that part out...... I don't know if he started that rumor or someone else did but he was never a Seal.

I heard from friends who trained with him that he has a very negative-reinforcement-based teaching style. That was over 5 years ago though.

Friends don't let friends train with Kazeka



j/k, I really don't care but he does have a reputation.

I have never trained with him but have talked to people that have and I have heard mixed reviews on his teaching style. I have never joined his gym because he has questionable business practices. He has been out here in California in the Antelope Valley for several years. During that time he has owned and shut down three gyms.

His first gym I went to several times to talk to him and he was never there. When I did talk to the manager and agreed to come in for an orientation class, I went there at the assigned date and time and found the gym closed and found an eviction notice on the front door posted by the LA County Sheriff Department.

His second gym he started out being with Gracie Barra. I went in there and was turned off by their used car style high pressure sales pitch. He left (or was asked to leave) Gracie Barra and became Knuckle Up. He closed down that gym and it was bought and is now Kemo's Fight Factory.

He then opened up Premium Fitness in Palmdale and recently opened up a second gym in Tehachapi. He just recently closed down those gyms and from what I hear left to the east coast. The Premium Fitness in Palmdale was merged (don't know the details) with the Tapout gym here in Palmdale.

So, I guess my point is that if he opens up a gym someplace else and you are thinking about joining, don't expect the gym to be around very long.

One of my teachers calls him "Paraguay", because right over the border in Paraguay you can buy all sorts of fake products.

He's a decent wrestler and has got legit bjj skills (at least, now he does). I know a couple of his affiliates in Germany & France and they are legit.

Don't know anything about his business tactics.

At the 99 Pan Am's in Miami,I saw go against Yuki Naki (brown belt match). Yuki beat him on points,both guys looked good. But.....Yuki's next match,somehow,the ref in the match ,ended up being Muniz. He blatantly made bad calls and gave the match to Yuki's opponent. I mean it was horrible. The crowd even booed him,and I believe the opponent was brazilian.
