Meraki is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be. We have taken this mantra to heart in developing the Meraki BJJ experience.

TRAIN ALONGSIDE THE BEST

Our Instructors Pay Close Attention To Every Student.

Professor Kenny Florian

Kenny is an accomplished 4th degree BJJ Black Belt under Roberto Maia of Boston Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Gracie-Barra Boston).

Kenny’s interpretation of jiu-jitsu embraces the correlation between our lives and our time on the mats: “Training reveals a human’s nature in that particular point in time. You can stay in that place or evolve from that place, he says.”

He is the only UFC fighter to compete in four divisions (Featherweight, Lightweight, Welterweight and Middleweight). He fought for three UFC titles in two weight classes.

Kenny is a co-host of BattleBots on the Discovery and Science Channels. Kenny is also co-host of UFC Now, which is available thru UFC Fight Pass. Every week, Kenny can be heard on the weekly Anik and Florian podcast.

Jason Hunt

Professor Jason Hunt

The influence of Jason adds both style and a judo curriculum to Meraki.

As a kid he studied judo and jiu-jitsu. Around 2008 as a brown belt he begin to focus solely on jiu-jitsu, traveling to Brazil and learning from Ramon Lemos and others. He received his black belt jointly from Gilbert Burns and Romulo Barral in 2011.

“I had the opportunity of training with a team that has produced some of the best competitors on the planet. Training with Ramon Lemos and all the great practitioners and competitors from that team made me a part of who I am,” Jason said. “I still value that training experience so much. It helped me develop tremendously as a practitioner, competitor and now as a coach.”
