jiu jitsu Coaches


Coach Diego Guadalupe, MMACS

Diego Guadalupe was born and raised in Union City, NJ. Following in his brother’s footsteps, he joined Fu Jow Pai (Tiger Claw System) Kung Fu under Sifu Paul Vizzio. What he enjoyed the most was the Kickboxing program but felt that his training was incomplete.

After being introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 2010, Diego found his passion. He began training soon enough and knew from the first class that this art was what catered to his need for self-defense, physical fitness and technique.

Since then he has trained with various instructors from Maryland, Chicago, California and Saudi Arabia. He is currently a Brown Belt under Professor Adem and Professor Idriz Redzovic of Redzovic Jiu Jitsu. Diego is also certified mixed martial arts conditioning specialist (MMACS) with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Diego looks forward to continuing his training and development as well as being among those who teach this beautiful art to others.

Coach Fred Rosser

Fred Rosser was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. At a very early age, he was passionate about two things, music and martial arts. Anytime a Kung Fu or Karate movie came on television, he was watching. It would turn out years later he would be fortunate to meet and learn from many respectable instructors in various arts including Karate, Kung Fu, Kick Boxing, Krav Maga, Sambo, and Kali. This began to shape his personal journey as a martial artist.

While training under 4th degree USA Goju System Black Belt, Sensei Joe Ansah, Fred adopted the philosophy of “Shin Ri Tan Kyu” meaning, seeking the truth, where one should develop a natural and effective response to a self-defense situation base on their individual physical and mental qualities. This approach has carried over to his training in Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, where he currently holds the rank of Blue Belt, and his instruction as the Rollstar’s Kid’s senior coach.  

Fred’s passion to live life fulfilling his purpose and making a positive impact in the lives of others continues to drive his own self development and inspire others to do the same.
