- Master Carlos Machado, 8th Degree Coral Belt
Train every day with the best people you can; we all want to train hard and get better without hurting each other. Remember: if you break your toys you don’t have anything to play with. That’s something Carlos Machado taught me. I’ve never been stuck in a submission; I’ve always gotten out – the easiest way to get out of it is to tap. Let’s train hard and look out for each other, don’t take it personal and have fun. If you approach Jiu Jitsu that way you’ll make great friends, get in shape, grow your confidence and be able to do this for many years. I want to be doing this well into my sixties and teach my children someday; I hope you’ll join me in this journey.
