There really aren't enough words to describe the impact that Valente Brothers Ft. Lauderdale Jiu Jitsu has had on my life. I have been involved in Martial Arts for over 25 years. The format that the Valente brother's use is very effective in developing well trained Gracie Jiu jitsu practitioners. They stay true to the traditional Helio Gracie Jiu Jitsu teachings. The instruction is high quality and a must for anyone seeking Gracie Jiu Jitsu training or training for self defense purposes. Instructor Bruce Belfield maintains the highest quality of teaching to his students and devotes almost all of his time to the school. The students are all very respectful, friendly and fun to be around. We are like family . The women’s self defense program is what brought me into the school , and the techniques that Instructor Belfield has given me to use to defend myself against a REAL LIFE street situation far surpass anything I have encountered in all my years as a martial artist . The women I train with are amazing and we encourage other women to learn this form of self defense . It will save your life and you will never have to be afraid of being attacked or wonder what you would or wouldn't do if someone tried to hurt you. Gracie Jiu Jitsu has changed my life in such a positive way and I owe that change to Instructor Belfield and the entire Valente Brothers Ft. Lauderdale family. I would highly recommend this facility.

From New England .over the years my wife and I frequently come to south Florida making us SNOW BIRDS most of the time staying in Boca & West Palm Bch,s . This year for the first time staying in Ft. Lauderdale . In regards to our appointment at Elena Europa Spa Ft. Lauderdale both my wife and I scheduled facials and one massages even thou we showed up a little late they accommodated us with no issues . The location is convenient A1A & Oakland Park Blvd. The Spa is unique & really has a European setting and the European Facials as they call them were acuiesced , my wifes comment was I have never had a facial including extraction that felt so good . She also loved the fact that the shower were in the same room as the massage not having to leave the room to shower was great .

The staff mostly if not all from deferent parts of Europe . For our covenience they also have another location in Pompano .
My husband and I have been going to Kenkou for over a year. The owner and chef worked at Benihanna for 20 years as chef and the food is spot on, right down to their homemade ginger dressing, garlic chicken fried rice. Where in S. Fla. can you get a Hibachi Chicken dinner which includes salad, garlic fried rice, stir fry vegetables for $7.50??? He cooks behind a counter, not tableside, but you can watch him cook if you want. They have sushi, tempura, hibachi dinners..everything is delicious. We were there again just last night and my husband had filet mignon and scallops hibachi. Excellent. Not to mention the husband (chef) and wife owners are the most happy and personable people I've ever met. Mrs. "Kenkou" makes you feel like family, greets you warmly when you arrive and is so happy to serve and please you. It's a very small place (maybe 6 tables), family friendly, and they serve beer, wine and saki of course!
