About Us

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is widely considered the most effective and efficient form of hand to hand combat, proven time and again in the UFC and other MMA and submission grappling events. Evolution Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Lowell provides training using the principles of leverage, technique, and precision for men, women and children of all ages and skill levels.

Trained under the watchful eyes of black belts Leonardo Tapias and Fabiano Trancoso as members of the prestigious Nova Uniao jiu-jitsu academy in Brazil, the Driscoll brothers are well equipped to teach the “gentle art” to all students. Having won and placed in various local, state, national, and world championships, as well as being ADCC North American Trials veterans, the Driscolls have the perfect blend of competition experience and teaching experience to help any student. Nova Uniao is one of the largest teams in the world and home to multiple Jiu-Jitsu and UFC World Champions, and we at Evolution look to duplicate that tradition of success here in the Greater Lowell area.
