"Aurelio is the kind of person that I give thanks to God for putting him in my life. He is a good friend of mine and lovely person with desire to do something good in our world. In the Jiu-Jitsu way, I can tell that he is the encyclopedia of ParagonBJJ. He is always looking forward to improve our game. I am very proud to have guys like him in our team." Welcome to our family, Ricardo "Franjinha" Miller.
Draculino"Aurelio Gallegos is one of the guys that really inspired me on something: don´t give up your dreams. He still teaches and trains a very good Jiu-Jitsu for this reason: LOVE FOR THE ART! Not money or FAME, just pure love! He always tried to build a strong Jiu-Jitsu community on the South Texas and He is doing so." Best regards, Draculino.
Roberto VelaA true professional on the mat and off, Aurelio takes the time to show every important detail. Aurelio’s persistent attention to detail makes every student better at what they do. He has taken his students to level of such respect that we have become one of the most remembered competitors in South Texas. Aurelio will never abandon the basics of Jiu-Jitsu, for this reason his students will always be on top of their game. This guy is a true professor of precision and communicates techniques well. Many words come to mind in talking about Aurelio like respect, professionalism, and heart, to name a few, but the greatest thing about his Academy is that you are like family. I know Aurelio’s commitment to his students will take us all to the next level in competition and our lives. Roberto J. Vela
Erik McknightI started training at Paragon in the late summer of 2003. I hoped to find a studio that was professional and would challenge me. I asked about and investigated the local studios and was not impressed. A friend referred me to Paragon, and from day one, I knew I was in the right place. Aurelio has an unquestionable commitment to all of his students and possesses an innate ability to tap into each individual’s strengths, even though to get there, he might need to help you realize a weakness. Aurelio sets the tone for a learning environment where your ego is checked at the door and where everyone is accepted and challenged. I feel confident that I am prepared to handle whatever physical or emotional tests I may face over the next six months. I am honored to be a part of the Paragon family of martial artist and look forward to returning to the mat in September. Respectfully, Mineman First Class, Erik C McKnight, United States Navy
John PorterBrazilian Jiu-Jitsu is used by law enforcement and Military SOF forces around the world (Army Rangers, Green Berets, USMC, Navy SEALs.) Today the need for a non-lethal combat system is essential in a world of media coverage. I have been involved in Naval Special Operations for over 18 years of enlisted and commissioned service; I have served in Somalia, Iraq and several other countries. In that time I have trained at many different BJJ academies; without question Paragon BJJ is the most family friendly school I have attended. It is an outstanding workout, a friendly environment, without the attitude. Aurelio is a terrific instructor not holding anything back in his teaching, the achievements of his students is a testimony to that. To anyone interested in losing weight or learning a combat proven martial art, I highly recommend Paragon Jiu-Jitsu. John Porter, Bronze Star w/valor recipient.
Leonardo Xavier"Aurelio is a coach that is always bringing the best for his students. He puts a lot of effort to keep his students up to date. For sure if you are looking for a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school in Corpus Christi you should go to his school. You will have a great quality of train and a friendly atmosphere." Leonardo "Batatinha" Xavier
Rianard Jackson"Tenacity and Respect are two of the great qualities of martial arts. Aurelio has both. I am so proud of him for his accomplishments and investments into Jiu-Jitsu. It is a great pleasure to be associated with this young man. He is an outstanding student and teacher. Best wishes!" Rianard Jackson, Judo 8th Degree Black Belt Rianard Jackson

Raymond LumampaoI am very pleased to acknowledge and advocate Aurelio Gallegos as an incredible athlete and superb promoter of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Aurelio Gallegos has taught at my school for the past six years. I have been very impressed with his teaching, and he represents my school in the highest honor. Aurelio is simply the best in BJJ. Raymond Lumampao, 4th Dan KUKKIWON

Dave NavarreteBrazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been instrumental in my development as an officer in the United States Military and as a Corpus Christi Fire Fighter. Although Jiu-Jitsu is a fighting art, the confidence, focus, and inner strength I developed are traits that flow into all aspects of my life. Aurelio takes great care to ensure that his Academy maintains a family atmosphere that is conducive to learning for grapplers of any level or age. His meticulous attention to detail makes certain that I receive the highest quality training. The combination of his techniques and coaching proves itself time after time in competition. Paragon Jiu-Jitsu has taught me how to push past self-perceived limits and how to hold on for that extra second that may be the difference between winning and losing. At Paragon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Aurelio will ensure that you will not only become the best grappler you can be, but that you will also have fun doing it! Dave Navarrete
