Gregorio Rivera, BJJ instructor in Claremont CA, arrested on sex charges

Thanks to the person who brought this to my attention.

Someone with inside information posted a thread a few weeks ago on about a BJJ instructor in California arrested for “child sexual assault.”At the time there were technically no charges. He was only being held in FL for extradition back to CA at that time.

Here is his site: 

The mugshots from FL showed the same individual. is the LA Sheriff’s search page. When his name is entered as “Gregorio Rivera” and the capcha is filled, the linked booking number comes back as 4083564.

Clicking through that link leads to more info. Case No. KA10706901, $150,000 bail, scheduled for 9/24/14.

Here is one reason why we should pay closer attention… 

Last year, it appears he posted looking to teach in the UAE, mentioning kids classes a couple times.

I will keep this updated as more information becomes available.

I can't stress enough how important it is to keep Greg away from ALL children. He is not a good person and in fact BAD for the sport of Jiu-Jitsu. I consider many people I train with as family and there is no way I see this person as family in any way. If you are wondering why I'm writing this negative review you should search the web for Gregorio Marcelino Rivera arrest record. Look for yourself and see if you would choose to to train with him or worse, have your children train around him. I'm sure when you see what he was arrested for, there is NO WAY you would associate with this MONSTER!!!
