Biography

My name is Fabricio Machado and I was born February 23, 1990 in Pelotas, Brazil. I was engaged in sports at a young age such as swimming and soccer until 11 years old. Around this time, I fell in love with Capoeira (brazillian Martial Art). I was introduced to many different Martial Arts afterwards, but I was really intrigued by BJJ.

From the beginning I have treated jiu jitsu very seriously, but I never thought it would became my life. At 22 years old I was already I brown belt under the Grand Master ninth degree Master Julio Secco. Eventually my master and I opened the Grand Team Jiu Jitsu Academy along with 2 other partners. I later on expanded my experience and began to train under professor Mario Reis.

I trained and represented his team for 2 years. I had one of the best experiences fighting for his team as well as establishing many lasting relationships. I came to California with a backpack and a couple of gis and I lodged at Brea jiu jitsu with professor Dan Lukehart.

I was presented opportunities that have allowed me to stay in California, which I am very grateful for. Nowadays I train under Checkmat with Professor Lucas Leite and I am having one of the greatest experiences of my life as I work to achieve my dream of becoming a World Champion.

Biography

Hi, I’m Yanelisa Reyes. I started grappling in 2007 and am currently a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I think BJJ is a beautiful sport, but to me it is primarily a vehicle to live the life I wish to live. A way to create opportunities to see the world, be healthy and meet amazing friends.

I have traveled quite a bit to train, teach and compete. I have coached hundreds and hundreds of grappling and MMA matches in my career. I do jump on the mat myself now and then still, mainly for the experience, to push myself and to set a good example for my students. Finally, and what I personally feel is the most important mental aspect of BJJ is the meditative, spiritual side of it. For those hours, nothing else matters. Problems at work, home, school, nothing. Everything is put on the back burner and the mind is able to reset itself so we can take a fresh stab at those issues tomorrow.

The complete erasure of all the BS that has built up since the last training session is more effective than any medication, substance, drug, therapy I have ever experienced. Being able to lose yourself in as many 5 minute rounds as you can before reality has to set back in.
