GMA member Michel Porfirio Pereira known as “Buiu” is a third degree black belt and owner of Carlson Gracie Miami. His academy has come a long way since opening a short five years ago. This year during the 2013 IBJJF Miami Open on Oct. 15 his team, with only forty-five members, placed in the top five schools in the tournament coming neck and neck with some of the top Jiu-Jitsu branches such as Gracie Elite team, American Top Team, and Gracie Barra. “Being a single school to come very close to winning is an honor,” stated Buiu.
Buiu was originally a part owner of Carlson Gracie Miami but after a few years he was able to gain full ownership of the academy. This year Buiu moved the location to a larger facility where he has been working with his team members vigorously getting them physically and mentally ready for the competitions. He works six days a week teaching over fifteen classes.
You can see his passion for the sport through his teaching as he diligently watches every single one of his students and corrects them, reinforcing a guaranteed technique.
