Rodrigo Medeiros -Co – founder – BJJ Revolution Team – Silver

First up the Legendary Carlson Gracie Blackbelt – Rodrigo Medeiros (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), for those unfamiliar and new to the sport.  Rodrigo began training at the famous Carlson Gracie Academy, a school rich in history and talent.  Huge names, such as Mario Sperry, Murilo Bustamante, Wallid Ismael and more.  In 1996 Rodrigo left Brasil with Master Carlson in order to bring the Carlson Gracie style of fight to the USA.  The rest as they say is history.  Rodrigo is now the co-founder of BJJ Revolution Team with his long time friend and training partner Julio “Foca” Fernandez.   Rodrigo now has many students that he has awarded and promoted to Blackbelt over the years through out the world.

If you are looking for that unique Carlson Gracie style with a twist, you can find Rodrigo Medeiros at Pacific Beach Fight Center – 4878 Cass St, San Diego, CA 92109.

Master Senior Worlds 2015 was Rodrigo Medeiros return to competition after 10 years of being away from the comp scene in order to dedicate his time to his family, students and the art.  The 10 year layoff went unnoticed as Rodrigo looked as sharp as always securing Silver in his very tough division.  Congrats brother!
