Do you know how to develop a self-discipline mastery?

Do you have a place where you can reconnect with other people?

Do you have a way to build trust in your community?

How do you strengthen the children in your family and community?

Since he was 5 years old, Michel Pereira has been taking jiu-jitsu lessons after his mom noticed that he was a little hyperactive in school. Her primary purpose in enrolling him in classes was to help him get all of his energy out.

However, as soon as he started working with his body, he felt like he’d found his calling.

Today, Michel is the Head Coach for Carlson Gracie in Miami, and he holds 26 belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which is a black belt to the 5th degree. In addition to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Michel also practices karate.  

After Michel moved to the US in 2005, it took him about three years before he opened his jiu-jitsu school in Miami. Today, his dojo is a place of escape in his community where he teaches his students about trust and integrity.

Michel says that within the dojo, they don’t talk about politics or racism, and instead choose to focus on positivity and the human connection. 

Michel and I had an amazing conversation about some of the challenges people face when they’re striving for excellence, including self-discipline. By combining karate with jiu-jitsu, Michel finally began to understand that he needed to take care of his body and how to be disciplined.

Combining these two martial arts, Michel began making the mind/body connection that he now teaches his students about. Today, he is a self-discipline master. 

Listen, if you’re in the Miami area, Michel would love for you to drop in and see how jiu-jitsu can help you achieve your goals.

However, if you’re not able to meet in person, you can still connect with Michel on Facebook or Instagram and pick his brain, there’s a lot of powerful lessons in there.

  • How to achieve self-mastery and self-confidence by connecting your mind and body together through exercise.
  • Remember your roots because they’ll help you get to where you want to go.
