Carlos Machado is nephew to one of the founders of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, late master Carlos Gracie. After learning from his cousins from the Gracie family, and his brothers the Machados (Roger, Rigan, Jean Jacques and John), Carlos is determined to keep the legacy going, and saves no effort in making his students among the best in the world, and that includes Mr. Madeley.

Skills taught are realistic for self defense and great for increasing fitness and stamina. Students learn strategies for advancing in rank after completing time and skill requirements, all in a safe and fun environment.
