In 2002, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and legendary black belt, Ricardo Liborio teamed up with Dan Lambert to form American Top Team. In just a few years, “ATT”, as it’s commonly referred to, grew into a 20,000 square foot headquarters in Coconut Creek and one of the largest most active Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) teams in the world. The team has thousands of members who train and compete in MMA, Boxing, Muay Thai, Submission Grappling, Wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. ATT has trained and developed over 100+ fighters in the largest Mixed Martial Arts organizations such as the UFC (“Ultimate Fighting Championship”), WEC, Strikeforce, Bellator, PRIDE, K-1, DREAMS and Sengoku. The American Top Team brand of MMA and jiu-jitsu has now spread from South Florida to more than 60 martial arts academies, across 31 states, 3 countries and still growing. That same knowledge, hard work, perseverance, and dedication honed from our professional MMA fight team, has been passed down to our students.
“There are probably four or five great teams that are capable of putting out world champions, and American Top Team is one of them.”
– UFC President Dana White
