Does anyone where I can find the lineage of Professor Jorge Oliveira or does anyone know? I read somewhere that he was awarded his black belt from Carlos Gracie in Brazil but I haven't been able to confirm it. Thanks!
I don't know for sure where Jorge Oliveira got his black belt, but I'm reasonably confident it wasn't from Carlos Gracie, Sr. or Carlos Gracie Jr.
I did see on the interwebs that he competed as part of the Ralph Gracie team for a while, but I don't know whether he came to them as a black belt. He's also done seminars and such for RCJ Machado, so it could be Carlos Machado.
