MBJJC Strengthens Ties with John Machado Academy, Reinforcing Commitment to Excellence in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Murrieta, CA, February 9, 2024 – MBJJC, a leading Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) club, proudly announces its official affiliation with the esteemed John Machado Academy. This affiliation underscores MBJJC's dedication to upholding the highest standards in BJJ, with a strong focus on the philosophy and teachings of Master John Machado.

Professor Tim Lopez, founder and head instructor of MBJJC, received his black belt from Master John Machado in 2013, laying the groundwork for his journey in BJJ. After years of training and teaching under the guidance of Master Machado, Professor Lopez achieved a significant milestone on October 23, 2021, by being awarded 3 stripes, attaining the esteemed rank of third-degree black belt.

This affiliation solidifies the bond between MBJJC and the Machado legacy. Professor Lopez shares the same mentality, technique, and skillset as the Machado Brothers. His teaching approach mirrors the philosophy of humility and service encapsulated by the motto "LEAVE YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR."

Master John Machado, a 7th degree Coral Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and the Machado Brothers collectively represent over 40 years of dedication to the art. Nephews to one of the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the late master Carlos Gracie, the Machado Brothers seamlessly blend the nuances of BJJ with their teachings, fostering an environment that transcends physical techniques.

John Machado Jiu-Jitsu, under the leadership of Master Machado, shares a common goal with MBJJC: to improve students' lives as individuals, fostering a healthier and more balanced lifestyle through the practice of martial arts.

Professor Tim Lopez and MBJJC are honored to align with John Machado Academy, embarking on a shared journey of excellence, respect, and continuous growth in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
