My experience with being part of the Machado Jiu Jitsu family and having the opportunity to be a part of the franchise has changed my life as a person, as an instructor, as a friend and as a businessman. I am excited to use the skills and the resources from working with the franchise to pass on to other people so that they are inspired to do what I do everyday – changing people’s lives for the better by bringing them to a healthy environment and care for others the same way I have been cared for by people around me. The experience and charisma that I get from Mr. Machado and his whole franchise team has been amazing. I have learned so much!

I have had the pleasure to train with many great instructors in BJJ. Professor Carlos Machado’s years of experience make him an incredible teacher, skilled in helping students progress at their own levels and at the height of their abilities. RCJ Machado is an outstanding and professional organization dedicated to the integrity of the art – a true brotherhood sharing a a common vision. I am extremely honored to be a RCJ Machado affiliate. It truly feels like family!

Many thanks to Mr. Keith Scott. I spent 15 years teaching part time – mostly as an expensive hobby.  When I went full time, I had to change my way of thinking.  Mr. Scott has helped push us from around 100 students to a solid 200 with the the systems to maintain them and grow in the future.  We have had a 30% and 20% increase in our gross the last 2 years despite a weaker economy.  We are looking forward to another record breaking year.

I have been an affiliate of RCJ MACHADO and Professor Machado since 2007 and can honestly say that the level of both my jiu- jitsu skill and my teaching ability have drastically improved.  The way Professor Machado teaches each technique with such attention to detail makes it easy to understand and teach to my students at STRYKER JIU-JITSU & MMA.  If you are looking to improve your BJJ skill level or grow your school to the next level, I would highly recommend  RCJ MACHADO and Professor Carlos Machado…ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTE!!!

EVAN THOMPSON

I have been in the Martial Arts my entire life thanks to my dad Ray Thompson. I moved to Dallas, TX in 2006 and my business partner and I have owned and run our RCJ Machado Jiu-Jitsu School for almost 3 years now and it’s been great. Having the Machado name on our academies sign is a blessing because when people Google and research our academy they read about the Machado’s, myself and my business partner and where we all learned BJJ, It makes it that much easier for them to call or walk in and sign up for a free Intro Class. Now, running a school takes a lot of work but with the help and guidance of the Franchise it makes it a lot easier because they help us get on the right paths in order to make our academy successful. Owning a Machado Franchise school has been great because it has allowed me to have a job occupation that I really enjoy and it’s also given me the financial freedom to start a family and put money towards my retirement fund.
