“To be a Champion, You Have to Train with a Champion”

That's the motto for the Robson Moura Nova Uniao Jiu Jitsu Association - and describes his overall family approach at the same time.  Robson Moura, 4th degree black belt under Nova Uniao co-founder Andre Pederneiras, is a 7x World Champion who started his Association in the United States 3 years ago.  Beginning with Josef Manuel in New Jersey, Robson has quickly built an organization that focuses on delivering the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction, helping instructors grow their schools and develop a family approach to teaching and sharing among members.

Working from his home school, Martial Arts Advantage in Tampa, Robson and his team have grown his U.S. Association to over 25 schools, with locations in Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Canada.  He travels regularly delivering seminars, from Puerto Rico, Brazil, Canada and most recently Australia - sharing his love of BJJ and unique style with white belts through experienced black belts. 

Robson's vision has always been to not be the biggest, but the best Association - providing opportunities for schools to grow their business and students to grow their skills.   Association members gain a wide variety of benefits, including access to Robson's teaching materials, an Affilate purchasing program, and much more.

Always the innovator, Robson has delivered a variety of training DVDs, on-line seminars, creative merchandise and is about to release a belt requirements DVD set as well as a system for students and instructors to track their BJJ training.  He was an early contributor to video tips on, and appreciates the passion that they and their subscribers have for jiu-jitsu.  He continues to compete, and his students and instructors have represented RMNU across the world with wins at the local, regional, national and world level!
