While passing through Las Vegas, the GRACIEMAG.com team dropped in on Ricardo Cavalcanti, the black belt at the helm of the city’s Carlson Gracie academy.

Our GMA Ricardo has approximately 200 students in his Jiu-Jitsu, muay thai, judo, and wrestling classes. Among them are UFC fighters Steve Cantwell and Stephan Bonnar. Nevertheless, the teacher takes immense pleasure in the classes he teaches to a different sort of public: the team’s kids, who bring in a great number of medals.

In muay thai the team already has some fledgling world champions. In Jiu-Jitsu the young fighters are already coming home with medals from big events like the Pan Kids. Among their standouts are Mike Alvarez, Chase Balasbas, Cameron Gomez, Vitor Bonato, and Taylor Leonardo among others.

And the Jiu-Jitsu at Carlson Gracie school is already being taught to children aged as little as three. The kids stay the entire afternoon at the academy, with classes from Monday to Sunday.

So you think it’s still too early to learn the gentle art? Then watch the video below to see how there’s no age limit for learning Jiu-Jitsu.

Durante passagem por Las Vegas, a equipe do GRACIEMAG.com visitou a academia de Ricardo Cavalcanti, faixa-preta que comanda a academia Carlson Gracie na cidade.

Nosso GMA, Ricardo conta com aproximadamente 200 alunos nas aulas de Jiu-Jitsu, muay thai, judô e Wrestling. Entre eles, feras como os lutadores do UFC Steve Cantwell e Stephan Bonnar. No entanto, o professor curte muito as aulas para outro público, a criançada da equipe, que costuma trazer muitas medalhas.

No muay thai, o time já tem até campeões mundiais entre a meninada. No Jiu-Jitsu, os jovens lutadores já voltaram com medalhas de grandes eventos como o Pan Kids. Entre os campeões, se destacam Mike Alvarez, Chase Balasbas, Cameron Gomez, Vitor Bonato e Taylor Leonardi, entre outros.

E o Jiu-Jitsu da escola Carlson Gracie já começa a ser passado para crianças de apenas 3 anos de idade. A molecada fica a tarde toda na academia, com aulas de segunda a domingo.

Acha que ainda é muito cedo para aprender a arte suave? Então confira no vídeo abaixo que Jiu-Jitsu não tem idade:
