About Arte Suave BJJ Africa
Arte Suave Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was established in October 2014 by Huntley Smith, Kyle Hendrikz and John-Paul Meeser. The name Arte Suave stems from Brazil and means “The Gentle Arte of Jiu Jitsu”. We believe that at Arte Suave there is a home for all types of bjj practitioners, from ladies interested in self defense, to fun and active kids classes, to serious bjj competitors to professional MMA fighters. Our aim is to create a safe and fun environment where we can coach the art, sport and self defense of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Since its inception Arte Suave has grown exponentially and now consist of 6 clubs in South Africa and 1 club in Mauritius.
