Fightinglifestyleuae.com caught up with 9 time world champion Caio Terra during his visit to Pride Fitness Centre and SAS team in Dubai UAE for a one week training program. During this time we caught up with him for discussion regarding various issues surrounding him and modern day Jiu-jitsu.
Caio talks about how in his opinion, it’s not possible to learn Jiu-Jitsu just by using online videos. Everybody needs a master to guide them.
Caio who is known for competing and winning the absolute division at the highest level, also gives us his opinion on how much weight and size plays an advantage in today’s absolute division, stating:
“I think of course size matters a lot, but you can defeat size with technique. Now of course it’s not a simple thing but I think that it is possible, as I have shown and other people are trying to do the same. The most important thing is to have fun on the mat whether you are going against some one your own size or someone bigger than you.”
Further more Caio Terra talks about himself as a coach and the values he brings to his students when coaching at his academy both in San Jose and online. Caio Terra also talks about his opinion on different BJJ Formats such as the UAEJJF 6 minute / IBJJF 10 minute and the submission only formats:
