Carlos was able to secure Gold in his weight class and then also secured a bronze medal in the open class! Afterwards, Carols made sure to thank professor Caio Terra, Vitor Paschoal, and Yuri Simoes as well as teammates, family, friends and sponsors.
Keep setting the best example you can for all of us Carlos!
Join Carlos on the mats at the CTA headquarters gym located in San Jose California. He is an early bird so you will have to make the 6am classes taught by Professor Vitor Paschoal.
Otomi Martial Arts | Caio Terra Association Brazilian Jiu Jitsu would like to congratulate Zandra Fountila on winning her second worlds title at the recent IBJJF Worlds tournament especially since her bracket consisted of girls that had beaten her previously.
Zandra’s training regimen included waking up at 6am to do her first workout, attending competition training class at Caio Terra Association HQ in San Jose from 1-3pm, and staying at HQ to make the 6pm fundamentals class followed by the 7pm advanced class. Her day would end around 10pm when she arrived at her house to do her last workout of the day! (Whew … All this while still preparing for her upcoming schools final exams the week following Worlds.)
Zandra’s first match was against Zoey Chiles from team Alliance. She won within the first minute with a bow and arrow submission especially nice since Zoey had beaten Zandra previously. Next up was Domini Engelmeier who would also be submitted via a triangle-armbar combo. Zandra’s third and final match against Abbigayle Tetterton (also Brasa CTA) was the most exhilarating as it came down to the last 5 seconds before she was able to pull out the victory.
Zandra exudes her gratitude to all that have helped her and can be found training all the time with her family and friends. Thanks Zandra for being an amazing young lady of BJJ and role model for young women!

Otomi Martial Arts | Caio Terra Association Brazilian Jiu Jitsu would like to congratulate Mikey Musumeci on his amazing gold medal and historic performance this past weekend at the IBJJF Worlds! This was an especially interesting contest as Mikey dropped a division to get to rooster not to mention that this years rooster weight division was a real doozy with several world champions in the division including Caio Terra and Bruno Malfacine.
Once Mikey won the division, he and his sister, Tammi Musumeci, made IBJJF history by being the first brother sister duo to win the worlds in the same year at black belt! Also, Mikey has now won 3 Black Belt world titles; two in the light-feather division and one in the rooster division (with a record breaking 12 second ankle lock submission).
To say we are honored to know you and have you on our team is an understatement. Congrats you are so deserving!

Otomi Martial Arts | Caio Terra Association Brazilian Jiu Jitsu would like to congratulate Tammi Musumeci on winning the light-feather division against Amanda Monteiro at the 2019 IBJJF Worlds tournament this past weekend. Additionally, Tammi also made history when her brother Mikey Musumeci also won his division making Tammi and Mikey the first brother and sister to win worlds in the same year.
While so many things stand out about winning an event such as this, nothing seems to compare to the fact that Tammi is also a full time law student and had to get past 3 other previous world champs in her division to win.
Crazy happy for you Tammi and honored to have you on our team!
We would also like to mention that fellow teammate Kristina Barlaan was also in this division and also made it to the podium! Great work Kristina. We are very happy for you as well and are fortunate to have so many women leading by example for our team!
