Meet Professor Mike Tomacelli – The Founder and Head Instructor of Tomacelli Academy

At Tomacelli Academy, our success is driven by the passion and expertise of our head instructor, Professor Mike Tomacelli. With over a decade of experience in the martial arts industry, Professor Tomacelli has built a reputation for delivering top-notch training and building a supportive community of students and instructors.

Professor Tomacelli’s journey in martial arts began in 2007, when he founded Tomacelli Academy. He has since dedicated his life to constantly improving the academy, evolving it into a platform for all things combat and community building. His unwavering dedication to the academy has resulted in a tight-knit community of students from diverse backgrounds, who are bonded through their shared love for martial arts and the code of honor, loyalty, and respect that Professor Tomacelli instills in them.

With a 4trh degree black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and a black belt in Ruas Vale Tudo, Professor Tomacelli is always seeking new challenges and opportunities to learn from his masters. This quest led him to bring his instructors, including Brazilian jiu-jitsu master Joe Moreira and Muay Thai instructor Dave Jannson, under one roof at the academy. With the addition of Vale Tudo master Marco Ruas, Professor Tomacelli’s dream team was complete, allowing for the real training to begin for all at the academy.

At Tomacelli Academy, we believe that training in martial arts is about more than just physical skills. It’s about building character, fostering a sense of self-worth, and instilling self-reliance. That’s why we offer private training and lessons, designed to cater to your specific needs and goals. With one-on-one attention from Professor Tomacelli or one of our experienced instructors, you can take your training to the next level and achieve your full potential.

Join us at Tomacelli Academy and experience the transformative power of martial arts. Train under the guidance of Professor Mike Tomacelli and become part of a supportive community that will help you reach your goals and live your best life.
