To describe Caio Terra as something other than a phenomenon would simply be inaccurate. Born in 1986, the Rio de Janeiro native was forced into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes by his mother when he was 16 years old. Terra responded like any rebellious teenager and essentially skipped his first year of classes. Terra maintains that he probably did not know a single move until he really started training a year later in 2003.
Despite his initial lack of motivation, the situation would change drastically. After receiving his white and blue belt under Ricardo Vieira, Rodrigo Medeiros, and Felipe Costa, Terra started training under Grandmaster Paulo Mauricio Strauch and Grandmaster Reyson Gracie. Unfortunately, Terra could only attend one class per day at the gym, but by this point his motivation was unquestionable and so he built a mat at his house so that he could train four to five times a day. Within three years of dedicated training, Caio Terra would receive his black belt under Grandmaster Stauch and Gracie in 2006.
Skeptics may question how anyone could possibly become a black belt with only three years of training, especially in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu where belt promotion is not taken lightly, but there is no doubt that Caio Terra is truly one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the world. Not only is Terra a four-time Rio de Janeiro state champion, a five-time Brazilian National Champion, and thirteen-time World Medalist, but he is also a two-time International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) Black Belt World No-Gi Champion, holding the title in 2009 and 2008. Additionally, he was the IBJJF Black Belt World Champion in 2008 and finished in second place in 2009.
