Awesome job!!! Here in Chile the academy i go to is currently training under the supervision of Cicero Costha, but there aren’t any black belts yet…its amazing to see how BJJ have been expanded around the world…
Thanks on the info, is always nice to know something more about this beautifl sport, both in and out of the tatame..
Carlson Gracie Sr. trained a black belt called Guttenberg Mello who in turn trained a black belt called Sidney Silva. You may want to add that as Sidney Silva is now the head of my school of BJJ in the UK
Both black belts have been verified and added to the tree as part of update 1.2. Thanks for the contribution!!!
This is awesome! Well done
