April 24th 2008, the Carvalho Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Rancho Cucamonga California had the distinct honor of having 9th degree Grand Master Alvaro Barreto share his 55 plus years of jiu-jitsu experience. He shared with the academy the educational, philosophical, well being and self-defense aspects of the most complete martial art in the world "Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu".
