Welcome to the Basulto Academy of Defense ​
team-bad.gifRepresenting Gracie Humaita Jiu Jitsu!  Western North Carolina's source for authentic Black Belt instruction in RGDA Gracie Jiu Jitsu by certified and trained instructors.   Basulto Academy has been training people in self-defense tactics for over two decades.  TEAM BAD is not just an acronym for Basulto Academy of Defense. It is also a philosophy of self-discipline in "BAD" situations and circumstances. It is a moniker for a group of people committed to a certain perspective on training and developing martial skills; a perpetual search for immersion in difficult and "BAD" training scenarios to hone the mind, sharpen skills and temper the body. Befriending fear and the uncomfortable is a prerequisite for understanding self-preservation.​ ​
