Carlos Machado is one of the highest ranked instructor in the world and the nephew of one of the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the late Carlos Gracie.
He was the undisputed Brazilian national champion for nearly a decade before moving to the US where he, his brothers, and his cousins the Gracies, introduced BJJ to the world. Having trained many champions as well as countless martial arts and film legends such as Chuck Norris, The Machado brothers are among the most respected and acclaimed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors anywhere on the planet.
Already black belt instructors in other disciplines, K2 Martial Arts founders Alain Moussi, Scott Fitzpatrick, and Aksell Nicolaides started their BJJ training in the late 90's. They opened their first club in 1999 and have since become internationally recognized instructors teaching all over the US, Canada, and Europe. They have been featured in Black Belt magazine, MA Success magazine, Gracie Mag, Muscle & Fitness and countless other prominent media.
Together they ensure the Machado legacy lives on in the Ottawa region and we look forward to having you be part of it!
