When Caio decided to start an association to spread his style of jiu jitsu it was very important that he was easily accessible to all of the members, instructors and gym owners. This was to develop a professional and training relationship, so the members could get to know him and more importantly he could get to know the members. With seminars and classes there is limited time where people can interact, for this reason Caio insisted we set up private groups for all CTBJJA members that will allow him to personally get to know EVERYONE a little better.
In addition, it is equally important for all of the affiliates to know each other, we are a team and we will always be a team. You often hear people talk about associations like family, I have never heard of a family that didn't know who their members were. This will never be the case with the CTBJJA, there will never be a time where we get so big that we don't have time to get to know our members! Caio truly does care, he cares that each school succeed and that each and every student progress in their journey in life and jiu jitsu. It's a major difference, the Caio Terra difference!
ONE TEAM | ONE FAMILY | CAIO TERRA ASSOCIATION
We will send you an email outlining the benefits, requirements and guidelines of our association. We will take the time to answer all of your questions and ask some questions ourselves. If we progress further there is a question and answer session with some of our affiliate members. This is an excellent opportunity to get more information and to see what it is like to be part of the Caio Terra Association. The final step is reference and background checks. All US members must go through this, process, no exceptions!
Although Jiu Jitsu is for everyone not everyone who applies will be accepted. This is for a variety of different reasons, it's important that you are a good fit for us and more importantly that we are a good fit for you and your business.To be an affiliate you must be at least a blue belt level and in good standing with people in your community.
Once you are approved and all the forms have been completed, signed and sent back, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits that the association has to offer including exclusive access to all curriculum material and the online network where ALL association black belts (including Caio) are available to answer questions. We will also add you on our listings on our various media outlets and websites and help with marketing.
ANY and ALL members of the Caio Terra Association, regardless if they are an instructor or student, will have access to the online networking and can ask Professor questions. People who are not directly affiliated with CTA however can not access these things, if they sign on with your id it will be treated accordingly as set forth in our CTA association agreement.
We have a CTA store that offers wholesale pricing to owners and discount pricing to students. In addition to the gear available on the website, we also allow gym owners to make their own merchandise (with approval).
Dues are paid either monthly or annually and there are NO additional fees. Seminars are strongly encouraged but not mandatory. We offer several camps a year that we encourage all affiliates to attend. These camps typically have several world champs and ratio of 1 black belt to 3 non black belts. They truly are game changing. All association members get a discount for camps!
You will be sent this information when you join! We follow IBJJF guidelines and have minimum requirements for every belt level. You also MUST learn Professor Caio Terra's Curriculum.
I had a been teaching and running gyms part time for 10 years. Thanks to professor Caio and everyone at CTA, my gym, the Caio Terra Academy, Irving has finally started gaining traction. It's my hope in the next 1-3 years I can do what I love full time! I can't recommend CTA enough!Collin Grayson
When we made the switch from our association to CTA it was very difficult. Making the choice to go with professor Caio Terra and the Caio Terra Association was the best decision we ever made. I only wish we joined sooner!Shawn Chandler
I've known Nick and Caio for a long time but was always hesitant about joining. Our academy, the Mad Tiger Academy joined this past year and it has been nothing short of amazing. The group of people you are associated with are all amazing individuals and I look forward to visiting San Jose often!Jeremy Nitta
