Legendary Grappler Baret “The Finisher” Yoshida has joined The Arena as the Head Jiu Jitsu Coach. A 2x No Gi Jiu Jitsu World Champion and 3x ADCC Medalist, Baret is a Jiu Jitsu legend. He has been a fan favorite since 1999, when he burst onto the international Jiu Jitsu scene as a Purple Belt with his epic battle with a much more experienced Royler Gracie.

A Black Belt since 2002 under the famed Inoue brothers, Egan and Enson “Yamato Damashii” Enoue, Baret has taught hundreds of students his relentless submission style, equally applicable for MMA as well as Jiu Jitsu.

At The Arena, Baret will head the largest single Adult Jiu Jitsu program in North America, totaling 50 weekly Jiu Jitsu classes with 5 top-level instructors. Baret will personally teach 25 Jiu Jitsu classes each week, both Gi and No Gi Jitsu.
