Master Carlos “Caique” Elias first contact with jiu-jitsu was in 1972 at a Judo Academy located at Rua Toneleros in Copacabana, RJ. The Judo academy where he trained was in a shared building with the Carlson Gracie academy. Master Caique met Relson and Rickson Gracie in his teenage years surfing in Rio de Janeiro. Because the surf culture back then was pretty rough and fights happened often, Caique quickly saw the value of Jiu-Jitsu and began training Jiu-Jitsu at 16 years old in 1974. His hard work quickly set him apart and Grand Master Helio Gracie named him the best student of his original academy. In 1996 Master Caique moved to the US invited by GM Helio to teach at the Gracie Academy. In 2000 he opened the Caique Gracie-Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy.
