Brazilian, forget from where but somewhere in the North. I think Mario is in Natal. Not sure, I'll check on Facebook shortly. Freddy (his bro) is def in Argentina.

Fabricio Predador has a good team based in Ecuador. I've met some Columbians here in Rio who were pretty good, but they were only blues and purples. Think a friend of mine trained somewhere in Chile but I forget where. And of course Tony de Souza is/was in Peru Phone Post

Tony is in Cuzco. Training there must be ridiculous due to the elevation.

There are a couple schools here in Chile,
There is a Humaita affiliate with 2-3 schools, then a GFT team way up north. Then a smattering of Schools across the country. Probably 15-20 I would guess. There are very few BB teaching most schools are taught by a purple or brown belt. The Chilean Nationals are this weekend in fact, hopefully there will be someone in my division!
