Grand Master Rigan Machado is the nephew of Gracie Jiu Jitsu founder, Carlos Gracie (Senior). Having been amongst the toughest BJJ competitors in the 1980’s, Machado moved to the USA in the late 1980’s where he established his own successful grappling organisation, producing high profile fighters such as Rico Rodriguez and coaching famous personalities like Dan Ionosanto and Chuck Norris. Rigan Machado is also a successful author, having published one of the most successful books in Jiu Jitsu, the Encyclopedia of BJJ.

Professor Antonio La Salandra is the Branch Chief and Technical Director for Europe and Italy. The European Rigan Machado Academy, is an active link of WJJF-WJJKO, approved by Shike Giacomo Spartaco Bertoletti, and Antonio has worked with Kaicho David Toney (head of WJJF Ireland and co-chair of WJJF-WJJKO 76), and his grappling team, to develop WJJF Ireland’s ground game.
