Carlos Andreucci

Carlos Andreucci

Carlos Andreucci has been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2001; his inspiration to enhance his training with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu came from watching UFC 1. Carlos enjoyed watching Royce Gracie (smaller opponent) defeat giants several times in the same event. When Carlos turned 17, he was accepted to begin his studies as a Dentist. He became an Oral Surgeon specialist with a focus in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Once Carlos secured his education he felt comfortable to begin his journey as a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. As he navigated through his Jiu-Jitsu experience and became a brown belt; Carlos wanted to explore the requirements to become a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt as Grand Master Helio had intended the art to be passed on. With the love, support & partnership of his amazing wife and fellow practitioner, Juliana; they made a trip to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Headquarters in Torrance, California to meet the Gracie Family. The vibe of the Academy was so unreal they spent 10 days training day & night. While also participating in group classes, Carlos & Juliana scheduled privates with Grand Master Rorion. Upon their final private class with Grand Master, he asked “Why don’t you take the steps necessary to participate in the Instructor Certification Program and open your own CTC in Brazil?” With Grand Master’s encouraging words, Carlos worked hard and qualified for the ICP and became a Certified Instructor in January 2013. Carlos also earned his Black Belt in May of 2013. Carlos & Juliana are honored and excited to become the first Certified Training Center in Brazil! Juliana is currently working toward her qualifications to be invited to the ICP with hopes of bringing Women Empowered to their CTC in the near future.
