Meet Our Instructors

Cliff Fonseca

3rd Degree Black Belt

I have been practicing Jiu Jitsu for 22 years, under Luiz Palhares and running academies over the same period of time. I opened One Nation Jiu Jitsu in March of 2010 and it's been our home ever since. I was an active competitor for majority of my career, slowing in recent years as age and priorities would have me do. My focus is the day to day operations, the staff, our students and parents. Ensuring everyone has what they need to succeed on and off the mats.
