One of the toughest Carlson Gracie students of all times, Carlos Rosado is the owner of an arsenal of Jiu-Jitsu techniques all his own. At 64 years of age, his body solid and gaze firm, the dreaded competitor from the 1970s teaches class at his academy in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, just a stone’s throw from the beach. Rosado sports his gi practically every day, proving the benefits of Jiu-Jitsu against such illnesses as diabetes, a disease the master has lived with for the past 35 years without it bothering him.
This month, Rosado travels to the Brazilian Northeast, to the state of Pernambuco, and has a seminar scheduled for September 19 in the state capital of Recife. Anyone interested can call (81) 8684-0917 e (81) 8422-4823.
Rosado was paid a visit by the GRACIEMAG.com team at his dojo. There, he, with the help of his son Massa, who also teaches Jiu-Jitsu, demonstrated a move he used to use to good effect against his opponents.
Take not of how Rosado first tries to sweep his opponent whom is trying pass guard standing.
Should the opponent advance to avoid the sweep, Rosado wraps up his leg, spins inwards on him and ends up on his opponent’s back.
