about the team

Most jiu jitsu schools belong to a national or international team. When it comes to competitions, students will sign up with their team name instead of their academy name. Each medal that is earned then compiles points for that collective team. It is a great way for academies across the world to come together and support each other and for students to be a part of something bigger.

Liberatus Jiu Jitsu is a part of BJJ Revolution Team, founded by Rodrigo Medeiros and Julio Fernandez in 2000. You can read more about the team on their website here.




Jeff Messina holds the rank of third degree black belt under Rodrigo Medeiros, and is the co-founder of Liberatus Jiu Jitsu. In 2004 he founded Revolution Dojo, one of the first prominent MMA schools in Houston, TX. It now has locations in Katy, Cypress, and Downtown Houston.
