A Little Bit About Me

Maurino Loureiro is native Brazilian and began training at the “Academia Gracie – Rio de Janeiro” in the 90’s before the great success of the Gracie style was acclaimed around the world. He was admired of the unique style of take the fight quickly to the ground and controls the situation, and most of time, against larger opponents. During all this period at the school he practiced and participated in championships as well in seminars and was able to learn not only from Helio but from almost all his sons: Rorion, Relson, Rickson, Rolker, Royler, Royce and Robin.

He had the honor to receive his Black belt directly from the hands of Royler Gracie and Rolker Gracie, ones of the most skillful and adept members of the Gracie clan and the most sought after instructors in the martial arts world.

In 2011, he moved to United States. Always practicing the gentle art he decided to share the Jiu-Jitsu philosophy providing group and private classes.

Maurino Loureiro is also certified  from American Heart Association in Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED training.

In our classes safety is a priority.

I Love What I Do

“I’m very excited to spread the Jiu-Jitsu Philosophy that I learned for more than 20 years from the real source. Saying this please don’t lost this great opportunity to know more about this amazing journey of the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle. In my classes I do follow all the way I learned direct from the school I was formed.” – Maurino Loureiro

Gracie Humaita Houston Jiu-Jitsu is an excellent school that teaches the world famous Gracie method. My son and I both attend to Maurino's classes and enjoy every single one. Maurino clearly explains and demonstrates every move with detail and always stresses safety. He is a great instructor that cares about every student and will help you learn and improve at your pace.

Maurino offer the purest form of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. He teaches the self defense aspect of Jiu-Jitsu and the sport side of Jiu-Jitsu so you get the best of both world. I also had the privilege to meet and learn from his instructor Royler Gracie at a seminar. Royler had nothing but great things to say about Maurino. This experience ensured me that I'm learning Jiu-Jitsu straight from the source. I have been to three different Jiu-Jitsu schools and Maurino's teaching is most thorough. Maurino practice what he preach. Also, he had helped me sharpen my self defense techniques and I'm more confident in my ability to defend myself. If you are looking for a school to learn Gracie Jiu-Jitsu than this is the place to be.

I was introduced to Maurino Loureiro through a friend I had trained with in the past. I decided to train with him because of his jiu-jitsu lineage. Maurino received his black belt from Rolker Gracie and Royler Gracie of the legendary Gracie family. I've been with Maurino for over a year now and feel like I'm learning jiujitsu at a faster rate than I ever have before. More recently, my wife has decided to begin training with Maurino for the self-defense aspect of the martial art. She's now on her third month of training and has become more confident in her ability to protect herself. We are lucky to have met Maurino.

I had a short experience with Maurino but during that experience it was very very good. Maurino teaches authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu just how the Gracies taught it in Brazil as he is still one of their students for many years in Brazil at the original Gracie Academy. Maurino teaches to where anyone can comprehend . He can be very technical with the more advanced students and be very understanding and comprehending when teaching with the more newer students. The instruction is priceless, for the "real" art which is extremely hard to find these days.
