Vu Tran - Jiu Jitsu Instructor

Vu started Jiu jitsu in the summer of 2008, at the age of 19. Like many, Vu always wanted to try MMA in High School. He even started kickboxing at the original AKA San Jose location, however stopped going because it was too crowded.


Prior to joining Sunnyvale, Vu had little to no martial arts experience; however once he got started with Jiu Jitsu instantly got hooked to the “gentle art”.


Aside from being one of AKA Sunnyvale/One World Jiu Jitsu’s most talented competitors, Vu is a technical instructor and a great friend to many off the mat. He states that it is the people in the gym and just having fun on the mats that keeps him going. Sharing stories, techniques, and thoughts with the team especially after a hard day of training.


Vu Tran is a black belt under Mike Prudencio. He teaches the Monday Gi class and the Tuesday No Gi class.
