North Broadway Jiu Jitsu & Fitness  

Bryan Guidry

My name is Bryan Guidry and I am the owner of North Broadway Jiu Jitsu in St. Louis. I'm a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and won the 2010 World Championships in Rio de Janiero.

In addition to my extensive Jiu Jitsu accomplishments, I have experience as an MMA fighter, college wrestler, amateur boxer and Judo player. I was undefeated in 8 MMA fights including my last fight, which required complete facial reconstruction.

I graduated from the Missouri University of Science and Technology with a degree in chemical engineering, and worked several years in engineering before dedicating myself full-time to my passion, Jiu Jitsu and fitness.

In 2006, I started North Broadway Jiu Jitsu in an abandoned warehouse next to Shady Jack's biker bar, just north of the Arch. North Broadway has produced 10 novice division Pan Am and world champions.

Undefeated in MMA competition, I fought UFC veterans Adrian Serrano and Curtis Stout to a draw. I defeated WEC Champion Hermes Franca, who fought for the UFC title in 2007.

In 2009, I produced the Fight Fit DVD training system. It sold all over the world through Amazon and can be purchased here.

I work with the St. Louis Metopolitan Police Department SWAT team on their defensive tactics.

I was the conditioning coach for the St. Louis Community College Wrestling Team from 2007-2009. I began training in 1984 with Korean grandmaster Bong-Yul Shin. Since 1998, I have trained under Rodrigo Vaghi, who is a 6th degree Black Belt world Champion under Rickson Gracie.
