Fabio is generous with his time and instruction whenever I come home to Minnesota for a visit. I love checking up on how my extended BJJ family is doing and getting to train in the safe and supportive atmosphere he helps to create for his students –– an environment which, especially as a small female, I know is not always easy to find, especially for those trying out Jiu-Jitsu for the first time. Rolling with Fabio and his students is always fun. I find training with him to hold the balance between focused, playful, and technical that keeps me committed to Jiu-Jitsu, a practice which gives so much back to me in return. Fabio is a gentle teacher who is great to geek out on the details of techniques, while being down-to-earth (and also totally “down to roll”).
Assistant coach at Jiu-Jitsu Dynamics (Olympia, WA)
“Fabio is that rare type of coach who recognizes both the similarities and differences between beginner and advanced students, and the best ways to help everyone progress together. His emphasis on movement and structure, over flashy technique and hard rolling, sets him apart from many other instructors in the current climate of BJJ. I highly recommend Akagi for anyone interested in investigating BJJ as a system of self protection or martial art. Great instruction, great group.”

I have known Fabio for 7 years now and approached him at the MKG gym in Minnesota, Minneapolis for training in the grappling arts and groundwork.We hit it off immediately with his brilliant knowledge of the arts and first class teaching skill with a perfect sense of pace and patience. Since then Fabio made a few trips to Canada to my training facility to teach seminars and give private tuition and he was instantly accepted and applauded by all students for his contribution.The result was a first class experience for all of us with up to date knowledge in Brazilian Jiujitsu, shoot wresting, Kali and related martial arts. One thing I loved is his enthusiasm for martial arts and his tireless energy teaching and transferring knowledge to all levels of martial artists.I found it to be a very profound experience to be taught by and watch Fabio teach and would recommend his seminars and private classes to anyone interested in starting in the grappling arts and the more experienced martial artists.You wont regret it and you wont forget it. ericyatesmartialarts.com

I started learning BJJ from Fabio as a white belt, with no grappling experience. His clear, concise, and technically clean instruction made it easy for me to build a strong fundamental understanding of BJJ. 7 years later, I am a one stripe brown belt competitor and Mixed Marital Artist at Brazilian Top Team, and I am confident to say Fabio’s coaching has been instrumental in my beginning knowledge of the art.
Fabio Morescalchi taught Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the students in our PREP summer program for blind teenagers. He was a wonderful instructor. His classes were informative, he put the students’ fears at rest, and he taught in a manner that was respectful to both men and women. There was no problem with the fact that our students were blind; he treated them like normal people. We recommend him highly as an instructor and as a friend. –

If your looking for a place to train I highly recommend this place. I had the chance and pleasures to roll with one of the best brown belts here in Minnesota Fabio Morescalchi
Not only is he good in Jiu-Jistu he is even great as a person.
Fabio has a wide variety of tools and techniques that he uses, which makes his jiu jitsu highly adaptable to situations and hard to work against.
He has a great attention to detail while teaching and teaches in a way that is easy to follow. He is great at pushing you to see your potential, all the while, making a fun and playful environment to learn and train in. Fabio has been a great training partner for me to work with and bounce ideas off of. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good jiu jitsu coach.

I can’t say enough great things about Fabio as a teacher.
He’s a Jiu Jitsu geek who gets excited over all the small and important details you need in order to have a tight game. This attitude goes into how he teaches and translates into a whole room of Jiu Jitsu students getting excited to learn and grow.
Never a dull moment. Fabio has been a great mentor to me and he is a shining example of what it means to be a leader.

Great instructor and coach!
Fabio has been teaching and training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for over twenty years and his enthusiasm and commitment to the sport really come through in his teaching.
I started training at Minnesota Kali Group where Fabio is head coach of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program as someone completely new to martial arts and have learned so much since I started. Fabio has encouraged me from the beginning to learn, have fun, and challenge myself in Jiu Jitsu. Classes are fun and make learning accessible and noncompetitive.
Fabio is very invested in helping his students develop and is always looking for ways to help students improve from organizing and teaching seminars and open mats, to encouraging students to train together and share what they know, to regularly putting in extra time outside of class to practice and answer questions.
