Professor Bob Vandervoort
Shortly after Marcio Simas brought Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to Florida in 1995, Bob Vandervoort begain training as one of his first students. Over the next twenty years, Bob trained, sometimes sporadically, under Professor Simas and several of his black belts, including Professor Dave Ogden. During that time Bob assisted Professor Ogden with self defense seminars and with officer training at the Orange County Sheriff’s office.
In 2014, Bob was awarded his black belt under Professors Marcio Simas and Gutty Muggiati. He feels privileged to train with and instruct at Gracie Barra Clermont.
