Fernando “Gringo” Zulick

BJJ – Head Instructor


When it comes to MMA and BJJ, Fernando walks the walk and talks the talk. He is a certified black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) with over 18 years of BJJ instruction, training and coaching experience. He also competes, along with all of our other instructors, and you’ll often find him, when not teaching at the Academy, competing in tournaments across the GTA and far beyond.

A native of Brazil, the home of real Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Fernando’s BJJ roots and lineage extend deep, having studied with BJJ Master Helio Gracie – Flavio Behring – Sylvio Behring . He’s even been featured in Gracie Mag!

You’ll find him to be a dedicated teacher with a true passion for MMA and BJJ and a long list of happy students, many of who have been with him for years.

More than just a BJJ instructor; Fernando also believes in giving back to the community and volunteers his academy to several ‘at-risk-youth’ groups and schools. Working one on one with these programs to get kids in a positive environment where they can thrive.

Most importantly, Fernando Zulick believes in what he is doing and what he has built at Action and Reaction and he looks forward to making you a believer as well.
