Experience & Background :

Frank Beels started Shito-Ryu Karate when he was 14 years old. When he was 21, he earned his black belt, but the same year (1995), he changed direction in a style that seemed more realistic to him, the "Kyokushin Kai". The teaching of this art was much more focused on fighting. With the influence in the 90's of the "ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP", he understood that to be a complete fighter, he had to know the ground fighting, thus Frank specialized in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Grappling.

He initiated and deepended his knowledge in the field with the first two pioneers of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Belgium, first with Jean-Pierre Grizzo, then with Patrick Chaput.

Helped by his training in Physical Education Bachelor, his innate taste for teaching led him to take the plunge and create his own BJJ academy in 2000 in the sports complex of NATO. This did not prevent him to take further part in many international BJJ championships and Grappling thereafter.

2003… that year Frank met a great Penchak Silat professional, Frederic Mastro, who founded, with a unprecedented talent in close combat (both bare hands as knives), his own style, the "Silat Defence System" (SDS), method very realistic and very suitable for security specialists and the police. Fred, meanwhile, was interested in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, always in a search of absolute efficiency, it was therefore an ideal technical sharing on both sides.

On October 11, 2007, Frank was promoted to black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, from the Grand Master Flavio Behring, 9 ° grade.

He will get his second grade and his Black Belt certification in Brazil (Rio) in November 2011 in front of the Council of Grand Masters.

And in April 09th, 2015, Frank was promoted third degree black belt, from the Grand Master Flavio Behring.
