Caio Terra - 11 time World Champion

Caio Terra is a pioneer in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He has produced his own champions under him in his school system. Not only is Caio a great BJJ competitor, he is able to teach students and relay technical details. Some world champions are great competitors, but not great teachers, this is not the case with Caio.

About Strong Heart Academy

Personalized “Non Corporate” BJJ Many school systems produce “Corporate BJJ” where they have a curriculum that is cookie cutter. At Strong Heart and CTA we support our students and build their game to play off their individual strengths.

Our History

Originally Professor Martin trained under Joe Moriera and was promoted to Black Belt.  Professor Martin met Caio Terra, a young BJJ World Champion and began to take seminars/privates and developed a friendship.  Eventually Caio Terra started his own Association and Strong Heart Academy joined Caio Terra Association.  We have learned so much from each Professor and it has made Strong Heart Academy a unique style.
