Bellator fighter and IBJJF Gi and No-Gi World Champion Rafael Lovato Jr. has officially opened his new academy.
The academy, located in Oklahoma City, isn’t Lovato Jr.’s first gym, but rather an upgraded facility to accommodate his growing student population.
Lovato Jr. shared a photo from the first class hosted at the new location:
“First class inside the new @lovatobjjmma facility tonight! 😃 Big thanks to these students for their kind words & amazing testimonials they gave about our work & family 🙏🏼 The new chapter has begun & I couldn’t be more excited or grateful. This is still just the beginning!!!”
The academy’s development has been in-progress for multiple weeks. The first photo of the new facility was shared two weeks ago.
