We are Paul Silva Jiu-Jitsu, Carlson Gracie Team San Diego. We teach traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with GI (Kimono Uniform) and No-Gi. Our goal is to provide high-quality instruction in a safe, team-oriented, and family-friendly environment. Paul Silva Jiu-Jitsu is a place where people and families can come to learn self-defense, be a part of a team, have support, be mentored, be active, and learn to be fit and healthy. We plan to help strengthen our community through our Mentoring and Scholarship Programs, Elementary Outreach (character building), and specialized self-defense courses.
The Silva’s have been training together as a family since 2006. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has provided a great way for us to do things together as a family unit. We train together, travel to competitions together, and support each other both in victory and in defeat, all while staying fit and active. It is our hope that through sharing our passion for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with our Community, we can provide a place where other families can be active together and encourage them to engage in activities that strengthen family ties. The family that trains together stays together!
