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.
The art offers something for everyone, men, women and children. They can
enjoy the benefits of the simple and effective techniques as a method self defence, to keep fit and as a combat sport.
