Rob Scheier

Head BJJ Instructor Rob is Ricardo Almeida’s 1st blackbelt, which was presented to him by Renzo Gracie in November 2004. He has been teaching and training with Renzo since 1994. Aside from traveling to New York and New Jersey over the years, Rob has also traveled to Brazil and Japan specifically to train and aid in fight preparation. He has been a longtime training partner and second for many UFC fighters including Kurt Pellegrino and Greg Soto. He also works with east coast prospect Dan Root who currently fights for John Rallo’s Shogun Fights. His goal is to pass on his knowledge and provide an atmosphere on the mats that promotes growth and confidence, while producing local, national and world champions. His experiences training over the last 20 years with ADCC, Mundial and NCAA athletes has molded him into the practitioner he is today.

RENZO GRACIE – WEBSITE NEWS, December 2004 “ROB SCHEIER was awarded his BLACK BELT. He is the first black belt formed by my alliance with my black belt, and Jiu jitsu STAR, Ricardo Almeida. I still remember when Rob was beginning to train Jiu jitsu, right across the street from the Liberty Bell, in the old Philadelphia school, I always knew he would go all the way. Congratulation my friend !!!!! NO ENGLISH !!!!! hahahahahaha.”

 

Rob Greenidge

Head BJJ Instructor Rob began training at Precision in 2007 and immediately began competing. Within 2 years he was competing at the pro level. As a purple belt, Rob’s first attempt at ADCC trials saw him submitting two opponents before falling short in the semi finals. Rob was recently awarded his black belt and has once again returned to competition where he took 2nd place in the Grapplers Quest Pro Sub-Only (submitting two highly touted black belts along the way).

“In life, things are going to happen that cause you to face hardships, you can make excuses or you can make progress. Training Jiu-Jitsu really gave me a sense of self-awarness and helped project my learnings and allowed me to adapt to situations both on and off the mats. Jiu-Jitsu has done so much for me and I hope to pass on those values to both the current and future students of Precision.” – Rob “Superman” Greenidge
