Jiujitsu World is hosting a two-day Caio Terra seminar in April (tentative). Exact dates and prices have not yet been arranged.

Please get the word out! If the seminar is successful, we will continue inviting world champions to teach. Hopefully some of my friends from Manila and Malaysia will come visit! 🙂 I have been to only one seminar, but I think this one will be much much bigger.

I heard about Ciao Terra because of this beautiful quote after he won a gold medal at the 2011 Pan Jiu Jitsu Championships.

I came here because I wanted to show everybody that technique can beat the steroids.

From Caio Terra’s website, about his seminars:

With over 100 seminars taught worldwide, Caio Terra has been teaching his championship winning techniques and helping students bring their training to the next level.

Seminars are three and a half hours long, with technique instruction for three hours and rolling with as many students as possible for the remaining thirty minutes. Caio Terra offers seminars throughout the United States and around the world. Caio will teach unique technical position of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and answer student questions about the techniques. After each position is demonstrated, the teacher monitors and corrects each student’s technique as they work among each other. This process continues for three hours so that students can learn as many techniques as possible, while receiving as much detail as possible. Caio likes to “roll,” Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s form of sparring, for the last thirty-minutes with as many students as possible. Even experienced students will be shown techniques rarely seen and will learn new details on existing techniques they already know.

Screw my back. If he comes here I’m gonna roll! 🙂

Here is an interview with him from TheFightworksPodcast.

This guy has a record too long to list here without boring you, but the biggies in my opinion:

  • 4x Gold Medalist World Jiu-Jitsu No-Gi Championship (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010)
  • 3x Silver Medalist World Jiu Jitsu Championship (2007, 2009, 2010)
  • Gold Medalist World Jiu Jitsu Championship 2008

This guy is bad ass. And only 25. Holy crap. I’m excited.

So…Cupcake? Pink jiujitsugirl? Georgette? Meg? I can host a BJJ slumber party! 🙂
