Gracie Barra Placentia in Orange County, California, is part of the legendary Gracie Barra, a worldwide Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu organization with hundreds of Schools around the globe. Our Professors and Instructors were trained under the Gracie Barra Curriculum created by Master Carlos Gracie Jr. and our Head Instructor and 3rd degree black belt Professor Marcio Feitosa supervises their work.
Professor Carlos Eduardo, 1st Degree Black Belt, began training in the year 2000 at the prestigious Gracie Barra “Caveirinha in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He is dedicated to teaching as well as practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Professor Carlos “Chalita” began teaching in Brazil several years ago. He then moved to Germany where he taught for three years before he came to Orange County. Carlos believes training martial arts helps to keep the mind sharp and controlled. The benefits he predicted are clearly displayed through his character. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu made him who he is today and he is grateful to be given the opportunity to prepare a new generation of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners to face their challenges both on and off the mats. We are glad to have Professor Carlos with us at Gracie Barra America showcasing his ability to convey the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle both in his instruction as well as his actions both on and off the mats.
