On Sunday, September 23rd, American Top Team Fort Lauderdale had a great free self defense class with Master Carlos Sapão. He is the CEO of CS Jiu-Jitsu self defense and the head instructor at CS Jiu-Jitsu in San Francisco, California. He is a third degree black belt under Ralph Gracie, with a 28 years experience in learning Jiu-Jitsu, 2 times World Champion, 2 times PanAmerican Champion, 5 times Brazilian National Champion. Among other titles, Master Carlos Sapão is well-know for his impassable guard, which means that in 20 years of competition, no one has ever passes his guard. Nowadays, Master Carlos Sapão is dedicated to teaching Jiu-Jitsu self defense for those practitioners who want to learn not Just jiu-jitsu as a sport but also the gentle art.
Master Junior Fernandes and Master Carlão Sapão know each other since they were little white belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. They used to train together at a gym located in Barra da Tijuca, which is a neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro city, Brazil. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu keeps their friendship alive since then.
