I got invited to attend one of the Machado Brother gatherings in Farmer’s Branch, TX by Master Carlos Machado. Of course I accepted! It was a very informative two days of jiu jitsu training that covered a wide variety of techniques and strategies. What struck me as most interesting was the more principle based practice as compared to other jiu jitsu seminars where a progression or random variety of techniques were taught. Brothers Carlos, Roger, and John were present and taught throughout the weekend. The atmosphere was friendly and cooperative and taught in a family-oriented environment vice a competitive environment that one might experience in more MMA-focused schools. It was time well spent, and I would recommend training with any of the Machado brothers if given the opportunity. First class all the way!
