"Achieving the rank of black belt in Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a tremendous achievement. To do that, an individual must be intelligent, determined, patient and a quality teacher. Adem has all of those qualities and more."     - Kenny Florian, UFC veteran  

"When you train with certain individuals, you will find that everyone has a "game", something they are really good at, and you have to shut that part of their game down. When you train with Adem you will find an extremely well rounded Jiu Jitsu game. He has a detailed understanding of the fundamentals as well as the advanced positions in Jiu Jitsu. His students are EXTREMELY lucky to have such a great instructor as well as practitioner of the arts. - Cole Miller, UFC veteran

"Adem above all is an amazing person and for a person like him to have a black belt is a blessing to the art of Gracie Jiu Jitsu. I believe we can all learn a little from Adem. From techniques of the gentle art to behavior outside of the academy and philosophies that jiu jitsu brings to your life. He is a man who puts the positive things we all feel from jiu jitsu into words. He is a real master of the art and has come to a point of deep understanding of all aspects of our great art. I HIGHLY recommend his teachings and advice anyone to attend his classes"  -Clark Gracie, World Champion

"I have trained with Adem since he was a white belt and I am proud to see how far he has come on his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey. Adem grew to become a solid black belt and well accomplished professor, making Gracie Barra proud of having a professor of his level representing our team in Chicago. It is rare to find a young man with Adem's determination and passion for what he does. I admire that very much and to me he is a source of inspiration"    -Marcio Feitosa, Multiple time World Jiu Jitsu Champion
