Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the fastest growing sports and Master Carlos is one of the most sought after coaches. He was the Brazilian national champion for almost a decade before moving to the  States where he and his four brothers trained many great champions in addition to martial arts and film legends like Chuck Norris.
