Professor Carlos Eduardo Farias

“Come Train with the best”

Carlos Farias is a third degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with over 20 years of experience in training and competing, and nearly 12 years of experience teaching adults and children the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Carlos is currently number 6 in the World for the Adult IBJJF rankings. Carlos came to the United States from Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil where he studied Jiu-Jitsu under professor Guillherme Santos. He received his black belt from MMA veteran Roberto “Spider” Traven, a 6th degree black belt, 1999 Abu Dhabi Absolute Champion and two-time World Champion. Under Traven’s instruction and mentorship, Carlos has earned multiple titles in Brazil, and a variety of United States and World titles.

In addition to being an active competitor, he is highly regarded by the Jiu-Jitsu community and his passion for teaching is unparalleled. He has built multiple individual Champions and top-ranking teams from the ground up. His loyalty to the sport knows no team boundaries, and the bonds he forms among fellow competitors and teachers in the U.S. and Brazil are ones that last forever. Carlos actively cross-trains and competes, tirelessly working to improve and build technique, equally for himself as much as his students.

Affectionately called “Coach Carlos” by students ranging in age from 4 to 60, he is dedicated to demonstrating the values of honor, discipline, humility, respect and equality through the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Carlos earned his third degree Black Belt in August, and currently has 3 black Belts under him.

After years of providing instruction at a variety of Martial Arts schools in the Valley, Carlos’ American Dream has come true with the opening of his very own academy.
