When we first started CTA Madison, one of our primary goals was to be an open academy. Open to all people, from all teams and affiliations, and from all walks of life. And while we teach the curriculum and fundamentals of Professor Caio, we remain open to all techniques, styles, systems, and games - as long as they are effective and safe. Almost every class at CTA Madison you will find somebody else sharing our mat from another team or affiliation, and we are happy to have them! Rivalry and competition can be a fun motivator, but the entire purpose is to make us better at the thing that we SHARE: Jiu-Jitsu. So let’s celebrate what binds us together and toss aside our differences. Everybody will always be welcome at CTA Madison. Oss!
