Checkmat History


The Checkmat Jiu Jitsu organization is one of the most successful teams among the juggernauts of BJJ. The team appeared in 2008 and though it is still in its embryonic stage when comparing to some of the more established teams, Checkmat hit the ground running and quickly stacked up medals at some of the world’s most important tournaments, while consistently pouring to the Jiu Jitsu stream excellent quality black belts such as Marcus Almeida “Buchecha”, Gabriel Lucas, or Joao Assis (to name a few). The Checkmat organization has also spread fast throughout the world having already franchises in at least 16 different countries.
