Who Is

Andre Almeida

Entering a brand new school or a brand new sport can be intimidating.
Not here.

Dedeco only needs one introduction to welcome you into the family and remember your name forever. Even after many years and hundreds of students, he does not forget. Dedeco is teaching, training, and involved at the school every day along with his wife and two children. The family aspect has never been more apparent than when you meet his family. It is clear this is not simply a business or a career for him.

This is his passion. This is his life.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Dedeco started Jiu-Jitsu at an early age under renowned pillars of the Jiu-Jitsu world. Dedeco can easily trace his lineage directly back to source and beginning of the entire Jiu-Jitsu martial art.

He established a premiere team and school in Brazil but decided to push his limits and challenge himself and move to America. Since arriving in 2004 Dedeco, has established a prestigious name and created a dominant team with affiliate schools in multiple states as well as overseas.

While not only bringing his traditional Jiu-Jitsu expertise to the United States, he is also the co-founder of Origin USA. With a focus on American made products, Origin USA has revolutionized the gi business and is now an industry leader.
