Getting Ready for Tigo

The Machida's have a martial arts studio in Belem, Brazil where the family makes a living by teaching Shotokan Karate.  The studio is a mix between a gym and a karate institution.  The people of Belem have memberships to the gym and parents drop their kids off to learn karate from the Machida's and other instructors. 

This is the studio where Lyoto trains 6 days a week.  The studio definitely embodies what you expect from a genuine martial arts doji: tradition, descipline, spirit and wisdom.

Strength training.

Chinzo Machida, Lyoto Machida, Chuck Liddell of Brazil, Lyoto's Trainer
Lyoto takes punches from this guy who is known as the Chuck Liddell of Brazil.  He is very powerful striker and likes to hit Lyoto very hard.

Very cool start for a blog!

What is "Chuck's" name?

Do they own a reverse treadmill? Lyoto should find that extremely useful in training for his fights.
