#85 Carlos Machado – Machado Jiu-Jitsu

Carlos Machado was one of the pioneers of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the United States of America. Carlos came to the USA in the early 1990’s where him (and his brothers) formed the Machado Jiu Jitsu academy, one of the main BJJ organizations in the Northern Hemisphere today, a Jiu Jitsu hive from where Carlos Machado has graduated high profile black belts such as Hollywood celebrity: Chuck Norris, former World BJJ champion: Rafael Lovato Junior and former UFC Middlweight title contender Travis Lutter. Carlos Machado was the first BJJ Black Belt I met and trained with on my Jiu-Jitsu Journey so it was so great to finally catch up with him again after many years as he’s always been a role model for me.
