Carlos Sapão
Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, 5th Degree

“Passion is only one word to describe how much I love what I do.”

Carlos began Jiu Jitsu in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil at the age of 6. Despite his young age, he knew jiu jitsu was his calling. He lived the next two decades competing, traveling the globe winning gold medals and creating lasting friendships through martial arts. 


 Carlos- a black belt for 19 years- is now retired from professional fighting and competitions. His focus is on teaching and promoting a lifestyle of martial arts.

"Martial arts is a way of life not a business model...martial arts is the forgotten way to help society. It's about Gratitude. Kindness.'s also about the art. There is no separation."

What techniques take decades of study to discover, Carlos is able to distill to simple details palatable for broad range of students. His own learner's mentality makes every training session a fun experience of discovery for all.    

"Strength is great, but technique is better. 

The truth is in the technique. Technique is strength."

Our Vision

Our mission is to serve the people, empower individuals and create safe communities through positive martial arts education.

We believe martial arts prepares individuals for society. They learn self-control and mutual respect. Through consistent training, they develop rapid problem solving abilities and life safety skills. 

We believe respect can be established without violence-with education and love.

We believe everyone has the right to learn safety skills, to live free and pursue happiness.
