When I started the Caio Terra Association, I never imagined we would be where we are today and I couldn’t be happier! This past weekend we held our 5th annual association camp with affiliates from all over the world from Suriname to Zurich. Each and every one of these camps are very special to me and I look forward to connecting with old friends while making new ones. This year was no exception.
This past weekend professor Caio Terra competed in Fight to win for the 135lb title! Fight to win is one of the premier Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments. All of their events are submission only, in the event of a tie the judges score the match based on who was closest to finishing and the amount of submission attempted.
In 2016 Champions Factory became our second affiliate in the lone star state! Located in San Antonio, and headed by Professor Thiago Diaz, Champions Factory is truly living up to it’s name.
Prior to moving to Texas Professor Thiago taught at the social project Leoes de Juda and served as the the head of the Caio Terra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association Brazil. At the request of Professor Caio and Champions Factory owner, Janie Rodriguez, Thiago along with his family moved to America with the mission to build champions on and off the mat.
It’s been 4 years since we launched the Caio Terra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association and we have been making waves ever since. In 2016 we won the IBJJF San Jose Open, gi and no gi divisions, the BJJ tour overall trophy (Us Open, American Cup, All star tournament) and placed first at no gi worlds in the masters division!

This past weekend Professor Yuri Simoes competed in the Eddie Bravo Invitational (EBI) 6, a submission only event.
