Balance Ireland is affiliated to Relson Gracie 6th and 5th degree black belts Phil and Rick Migliarese of Balance Studios in Philadelphia.
Balance Studios: http://BalanceStudios.net Phil and Ricardo Migliarese began their journey over 30 years ago by themselves, when jiu-jitsu had not even established itself in North America.
Under the guidance of Relson Gracie and the inspiration of Helio Gracie, the creator of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, the Migliarese brothers became some of the first black belts in the United States.
Today, almost 20 years after they opened their first school in Philadelphia, they have created a community, a family, of diverse individuals who are dedicated to learning from one another, on the mat and off.
“Balance Studios: A Jiu-Jitsu Story” gives the viewer a unique perspective into the service-oriented experience that the Migliarese brothers have created, and how it touches the lives of people in Philadelphia and at more than 40 global affiliates.
