I have been in the game nearly 16 years. And come across many good intructors, some of them with very big names. Carlos’ abilty to help build your game is remarkable, like nothing else I have experienced.

It has been a privelage to be a student under Professor Carlos Machado for many reasons. I find it (for lack of a better word) INCREDIBLE, that his concern for the students, and our progression is on the forefront of his concentration. It goes without saying, that he is the GODFATHER of BJJ in the southwest, and the lineage of his teachings is immense. An instructor of brazilian jiu-jitsu, and a student of life. Humility, and positive philosophy radiate from our instructor. We thank you sir! -Ray Anthony (Vidano) Flores

Carlos Machado has been my instructor for 13 years because he is genuinely a Master of the art. Carlos is valuable because he provides access to a unique lifetime of research and study in the science and art of jiujitsu. There are things about jiu-jitsu a person doesn’t *completely* understand until after a couple of decades of study. Carlos give you that. Even better, he is an honest, moral person.

Carlos is an amazing person and instructor. He is always willing to help, teach, and advise but even more than that he leads by example. I think there are maybe less than 10 people that are close to being at his level as an instructor.

Master Carlos Machado wisdom and guidance as a mentor and my instructor is unmatched. Never have I trained with anyone so humble and knowledgeable about brazilian jiu-jitsu and life. His understanding of the positions in jiu-jitsu and ability to break them down is mindblogging. He is incredible on the mat and produces some of the most talented grapplers on the planet! Thank you Master

Master Carlos was there the day I was awarded my Blue belt and it made the day that much more special for me. Master Machado has a very finely tuned sensibility that is only rivaled by his enthusiasm while teaching his incredible brand of Machado BJJ. At the seminar Carlos was amazing and he even remembered the names of all the people that were in attendance!! Amazing Instructor and friend!

I have had the privledge of knowing and learning from Carlos since ’96. You won’t find a better instructor/teacher anywhere. He has a true gift of breaking down details and explaining the concepts behind the techniques. Come visit his academy in Dallas and experience it yourself or catch one of his seminars. He has trained /trained with the best in the world for decades and still teaches the beginners classes on a daily basis. His methods are innovative and techniques are always evolving. I am thankful to have access to one of jiu-jitsu’s greatest.

Mr. Machado is definitely an amazing BJJ instructor. He is known as a BJJ master of the small details which play a huge part in BJJ. No one else comes close to his level of details. Not only does he get so in depth with his teachings but it is very easy to understand. He’s also not just an instructor but he actively trains with with some of his black belts who are on their own World Class on the mat!! It’s truly awesome to see him roll! I can only wish to be half as good as Mr. Machado!!!

Prof. Carlos is definetly, at least in my opinion, one of two of the very best martial artist I have the privilege of knowing!! His desire to progress the art and science of BJJ AND teach practitioners of other arts how the principles within BJJ can be applied to all arts is amazing!!! I have been studying the striking arts since 1974 and while studying BJJ under Prof Carlos my understanding of “Martial Arts” has grown to a level I do not think it would have had I not studied with him!! for that my heart is forever linked to him!!

I had the opportunity to take a seminar with Master Machado. I still get excited thinking about that day. A lot of people attended the Seminar and Master Machado took the time to ask us individually the questions we had and he directly answered them and then guided us through the technique until we got it right. ever since then all i have trained is RCJ Machado BJJ.

Hey, josh. I understand that trolling has become a popular sport among the internet brave, but by all means, as a student of his, I invite you to come test that hilarious, false statement. The respect from true martial artists is insurmountable, and maybe your true emotion is an absurd amount of envy. -RAVF

Carlos Machado is the best instructor in DFW, and maybe the country. Always helpful, always professional, and provides details that few instructors can provide.

Where do I begin with this, Master Machado does more then teacher you Brazilian jujitsu , staying healthy mind and body . You can learn at your Owen pace, he makes it very easy to understand breaks move down one movie at a time. And I think the biggest thing is it�s not about the money to him it�s about passing on the knowledge that he has in jujitsu over the many years he considers you part of the family. And for that it is priceless I fell in love with jujitsu because of Master Machado .
