Confidence comes from competence. Competence comes from consistency. You’ve done something long enough, you went through enought time to work on your trade and sharpen your blade. You know what' you’re capable of. You don’t have to brag or show the world, you just show them when you act and not by talking about it.
Master Carlos Machado began his training at the legendary Gracie academy where he was taught and mentored directly by his uncle, Grandmaster Carlos Gracie. All of the Machado brothers spend a lot of time at the Gracie Compound with all the Gracie kids. They played together, ate together, trained together, and simply grew up together. After moving to the southern part of Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana, Carlos Machado was then taught and mentored directly by the legendary Rolls Gracie.
One of the main goals of Master Carlos Machado is to simply make the “Average Student, Above Average”. His mission is also to teach his instructors to be the best they can be by mentoring them and instilling in them a solid foundation on many levels, which will greatly benefit not only their own students but also themselves individually on and off the mats and will ultimately enable successful operation of the many premium Carlos Machado Jiu Jitsu Academies in the United States and around the world.
