Professor Caio Terra

Certified 3rd Degree Black Belt Instructor under Grandmasters Paulo Mauricio Strauch and Reyson Gracie. 
Personal History 

Caio Terra was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His Jiu-Jitsu journey began at the age of 16 at his mothers behest. Caio was physically smaller than his peers (he weighed 88lbs entering high school) and his mother, worried about his safety, insisted he enroll in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Caio responded like any rebellious teenager and essentially skipped his first year of classes (Terra maintains that he probably did not know a single move until he really started training a year later in 2003).

Despite his initial lack of motivation, the situation would change drastically. After receiving his white and blue belts under Ricardo Vieira, Rodrigo Medeiros, and Felipe Costa, Terra started training under Grandmaster Paulo Mauricio Strauch and Grandmaster Reyson Gracie. Unfortunately, Terra could only attend one class per day at the gym, but by this point his motivation was unquestionable and so he built a mat room at his house so that he could train four to five times a day. Jiu Jitsu had become a part of his life. Within three years of dedicated training, Caio Terra would receive his black belt under Grandmaster Stauch and Reyson Gracie in 2006.

Skeptics questioned how anyone could possibly become a black belt with only three years of training, especially in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu where belt promotion is not taken lightly. He would prove to the world that he was not only deserving of the rank but was among the sports elite. Caio Terra is a four-time Rio de Janeiro state champion, a five-time Brazilian National Champion, and thirteen-time World Medalist, the ONLY four time International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) Black Belt World No-Gi Champion. Additionally, he was the IBJJF Black Belt World Champion (with gi) in 2008 and finished in second place in 2009.

Teaching History
Caio Terra has been instructing students and producing world champions since 2004. In 2007, Caio moved to the United States where he taught and trained at Caesar Gracie Academies. In 2011 he opened his own academy, the institute of martial arts, in San Jose. Caio has conducted over 100 seminars, in 2012 he felt it was time to bring his unique brand of jiu jitsu to the world and started the Caio Terra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association.
