Let the Journey begin!

We are CTA

After many years of planning, in 2012 I started the Caio Terra Association. My idea was to get a group of like minded individuals who can make a difference in the world through Jiu Jitsu. I believe strongly that Jiu Jitsu and the Martial Arts truly changes and tranforms lives.

As a result none of our goals are related to the number of affiliates we have or the trophies we win.  Instead we focus on a select number of schools to help them succeed so that they can make a bigger impact in their communities.

We are not looking for the best people, but the right people!

The Next Evolution

Caio Terra Online

In 2014 I launched Caio Terra Online, The next evolution in learning. This website is open to everyone and features exclusive content not found anywhere online. With live streaming coverage of all camps and weekly lesson plans, Caio Terra Online continually has something for everyone. Coming in the spring of 2017, CTA members will have a members only section to share videos, insights and get to know each other better!
