"I started Jiu-Jitsu because I wanted to experience another form of exercise and learn self-defense. Initially, I was very uncomfortable executing the moves and sparring; however, the more I practiced and got involved, I fell in love with the sport... I remember thinking I will do whatever it takes to obtain a colored belt. Jiu-Jitsu not only helped me stay active, however, it helped my state of mind. There are times when I’m in a sticky situation in Jiu-Jitsu but I've learned to stay calm and critically think my way out of situations, and if unsuccessful, I take notes of what I need to work on.
I utilize the same critical thinking skills in my day-to-day life. At times life will be rough; however, I remember to stay calm and work my way out of the situation, just like in class. I always encourage everyone to learn a form of martial art, (preferably Jiu-Jitsu) so they can gain this same experience. My only regret is not starting sooner."

"I find there are moments when one may come to question the extent of their potential. When the mind and body are not engaged, the spirit falters. In those moments, decisions must be made to lift the spirit, push personal boundaries and begin molding what you can become. Here you will find not only these things but camaraderie, council, support and encouragement. All of which will nourish many aspects of your life, no matter at what stage you find yourself."

"I've been training at Carlos Alberto’s MMA since January of 2018. I originally signed up because I wanted to learn how to defend myself and get in better shape in the process. Five years later, I can honestly say I've gained much more than what I originally signed up for. Not only have I gotten in better shape and gained the ability to defend myself, but I've gained patience, persistence, perseverance, and determination under CAMMA's MMA program."
