jiu jitsu Coaches
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 Adem and 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.
Omar has been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since September of 2011. He currently holds the rank of Black Belt under Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro. A well-rounded martial artist, Omar has trained in several other arts, but believes that Jiu Jitsu has been the art he is most passionate about. Omar is still an active competitor having achieved medals in several IBJJF, Abu Dhabi, and Newbreed Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. In addition to Jiu-Jitsu, Omar also currently trains Muay Thai in New York City under Kru Aaron Fisher.

Fred Rosser was born & raised in the Bronx, New York. At a very early age he was passionate about two things, one was music and the other was martial arts. Anytime a Kung Fu or Karate movie came on television you best believe he was watching. It would turn out years later he would be fortunate to meet and learn much from many respectable instructors in various arts (Karate, Kung Fu, Kick Boxing, Krav Maga, Sambo, and Kali). This begins to shape his personal journey as a martial artist.
Over the past 5 years Training under 4th black belt USA Goju system Sensei Joe Ansah, Fred eventually adopted the philosophy of “Shin Ri Tan Kyu” meaning, seeking the truth! Sensei Joe had a different approach to learning. One should develop a natural and effective response to a self-defense situation base on their individual physical and mental qualities. That approach carried over to Judo where Fred holds the rank of blue belt and now the Rollstar BJJ family where he received his blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
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.
