Mica is the Best Instructor and an all around great person to be around. I have to say that he makes learning Jiu Jitsu very easy and fun at the same time. Gracie Humaita/Team Mica is a perfect place to train and better yourself as a person. Amilcar "Mica" Cipili is Top Rate!! Come into one of his schools and try it out! I guarantee you will love him and the whole family atmosphere that is found there!

No but seriously he's a very good instructor!!

Mica not only offers the most pure form of BJJ in Vegas, but also turned a team into a family. He has taught us how to be loyal, honorable, and disciplined. Mica is the cool uncle I never had, he looks out for us both personally and in training, making sure no one falls behind and that ego's are checked at the door. I also like how Mica has shown us not only the pure form of BJJ, but also shown us how to adapt it to real life situations and how to understand when to walk away, and when to use it. Mica your impact on my life has been incredible. Keep up the great work sir!

The last thing i would say is "Mica is a fraud". I've been in Vegas 20 years and seen the MMA movement come here. Mica is by far a superior instructor, he didn't get "most technical fighter of the year" for being a fraud. I have trained with many instructors all over the place and he always reassures me. After training with Cascão for a year I knew I needed to make a change and go back to train with Mica again. Just remember #131 James, out of all of his votes you're 0.76% that thinks this, that's less that one percent. Keep your comments to yourself.

I am shocked that anyone would ever try to say any bad thing s about Mica! His record stands for itself. Just visit one of his schools and ask his students about him!! Mica is a true, honest and a great instructor and person!!


136. Submitted by David Raines on Saturday December 24, 2011 3:02 PM
Funny I remember as Mica's third student here in Vegas (#3) he always said he wold be happy if one of us would tap him or become better. Another time in California a top teacher here in town and Mica were to have a match and the top teacher stepped down, seemed he didn't want to risk losing. Mica never said a bad word about him and as his student I wont even mention the other mans name, not important. But whoever is unbeatable or perfect? Who says Mica or anyone is perfect or above all? This is not the Bushido ideal. But this venue here on line is a chance for students and friends to show appreciation for someone we respect and are grateful for.

It's obvious to see that, James (comment #131) is ignorant  about Jiu Jitsu, and about history of the art. As a competitor, Mica has competed and has won more titles than anyone on your list mentioned above. As an instructor, his team won more championships than any other team in Vegas, besides being national champions two times, by IBJJF (the only team in Vegas). The only fraud here is you James, by your own words.


139. Submitted by Amanda on Saturday December 24, 2011 5:44 PM
James, check your "facts" and learn the truth about Mica and his legacy in BJJ before commenting here behind a computer screen, and talking trash. It's simple, show up at his academies and you'll see it for yourself. Team Mica, in fact, is legitimately the best in Vegas for all its accomplishments and titles won over the years, as well as Mica as a great and successful competitor throughout many years dedicated to jiu-jitsu. Mica is admired by all of those around him, who know him for his honesty, loyalty and commitment, and that is only a privilege to a very few others out there! It's interesting to see that, of all 138 comments up until now, only 1 comment says otherwise! Who's really faking here??

My Loyalty is everything to Mica, and people like James and Jesse come onto Mica's page and trashes him. Mica's students have so much respect for him regardless of what anyone says about him. You all who trashes my Professor obviously have no Honor for the sport or anyone. Keep your opinions to yourself, I've been Loyal to Mica since June 2007, so there is nothing you all can say to recruit to another school or get me to rethink my Loyalty to Mica, his instructors, or fellow students, we're a Loyal Family...

James #131 it is unfortunate that you don't learn from a professor like Mica. Among the great technique he teaches he also teaches honor, respect, loyalty and integrity. Maybe those are the things lacking in the instruction you are recieving. People like Jesse are disappointing as well. You have some good accomplishments in this sport thus far but trash talking is not a characteristic of a true champion. Team Micas accomplishments speak for themselves and demonstrate how well Mica teaches his students the art of Jiu Jitsu. We are team I am proud to be a part of. OSSSS!

Jesse Arellano & James. Did you ever think before talk? what if your instructor is reading this i' m pretty sure he wouldn't like that kind behavior towards other BJJ Teams, especially the instructor #2 in the rank by honest votes and #1 in the comments. i mighty be wrong and you guys are by far black belts 3ºdegree or more that has over 3000 students and over 300 titles, but wait a minute if that so You are forgetting one of the most important rules ( RESPECT ). Why don't you guys calm down, nobody is causing drama for you but yourselfs.

Jesse Arellano and James (#131 & #141), I shouldn't waste the time or energy to respond to your ignorant comments, but I can't help get upset reading your comments about Mica. Mica is a great human being, is awesome at Jiu Jitsu and as a professor of BJJ, Mica changes lives by teaching principles of respect, loyality, honor, discipline and so on to his students. You guys have no right to leave such messages on this page. If you really knew what Mica stands for and what is taught at his academies, you would realize how ignorant your comments are.

MICA IS A GREAT INSTRUCTOR! IS HE A GREAT JIU JITSU COMPETITOR? NO NOT REALLY, UNLESS YOU COUNT SOME OF HIS PURPLE BELT DAYS. HIS OLD STUDENT WALTER WOULD CRUSH HIM IF THEY WENT FULL AT IT. HE NEVER REALLY LIKED TO "ROLL" WITH BROWN OR BLACK BELTS THAT WOULD VISIT HIM, HE STAYED AWAY FROM THAT. I HAVE SEEN MANY OF HIS PURPLE BELT MATCHES AND IF HE WON..IT WAS BY DECISION. I HAVE SEEN SOME WHERE HE SHOULD HAVE LOST AS WELL...BRAZILIAN POLITICS LET BRAZILIANS WIN BACK THEN. DON'T GET ME WRONG, MICA IS A GREAT GUY. A LOT IN THE BJJ WORLD WAS JUST A LITTLE HESITANT WHEN HE FIRST GOT HIS BJJ BLACK BELT. BECAUSE BACK THEN IT WAS MORE OF YOU EARNING IT THROUGH WINNING TOURNAMENTS. WHAT BROWN BELT TOURNAMENTS DID MICA WIN? HELL MAKE UP SOME STORIES..JUST LIKE HE WAS WORLD CLASS JIU JITSU BLACK BELT CHAMPION....FOLKS..SORRY TO BREAK IT TO YOU..HE NEVER WAS. LIKE I SAID, HE IS A NICE GUY..BUT I THINK HE IS STARTING TO BELIEVE IN HIS LIES IN THE PAST AND JUST GOING SENILE. HE IS A GREAT INSTRUCTOR FROM WHAT I HEARD AND WITNESSED AND SEEN. BUT NO CHANCE HE IS A WORLD CHAMPION PLAYER AT A BLACK BELT LEVEL. HE IS PROBABLY A LEGIT BLACK BELT NOW...BUT WHEN HE FIRST GOT HIS BLACK BELT..HE WAS REALLY JUST A GOOD PURPLE BELT..IMO. MANY BJJ BLACK BELTS WOULD TELL YOU THE SAME THING.

" I PROMISE I DONT CARE WHAT COLOR BELT YOU ARE,TO MAKE BETTER FOR YOU I OFFER $1000 IF YOU LAST MORE THAN A MINUTE WT ME.HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON ON THE MAT" LOL! I can see I hit the right buttons. 40 Black belt matches, and lost 5 times? Haha, that's very funny. That's why you are so mad. Your Brown belt matches are not documented, maybe just a couple. That's why you make up all your matches, because back in the day..only a couple of the forums and ADCC plus some other barely document the tournaments. That's why you exaggerate your numbers. If I put you in a BJJ tournament right now in brazil, you would lose your match...Guaranteed. Your "stalling" style cannot stop a Real BJJ black belt of today. I know of a lot of BJJ instructors and Black Belts that have talked about your black Belt Promotion..you didn't deserve it at that time. You liked to stall in the guard. I trained as long as you have Mica, I'm just telling the truth. You probably roll with some black Belts and higher belts now but back when you opened your school , YOU DIDN'T ! You know this is the truth

I thought this website was called ratemybjjinstructor not rate jiu-jitsu competitors. Let alone try to hide behind computer and bad mouth people. Mica is a very dedicated BJJ instructor who personally let me stay at his house for 10 days and train with him for free, just to help me with my BJJ game. He is very easy to learn from and helps all students from white belt to blackbelt. Why is there need to come on some1's page and badmouth them. Do you not have a life? Are you that jealous of Mica?

The site is rate my BJJ instructor..but as what? an instructor, person, coach, competitor? Im sure Mica is a good coach and person but not competitor...facts are facts. Look at the IBJJF website. I checked the Pan Ams, Worlds, and Brazilian Nationals...he has never won or placed at the worlds in any belt. He has never won or placed in the Brazilian Nationals in any belt. He has placed a few times at the Pan Ams in black belt in Senior 1 and Senior 2 divisions. He won it once in Senior 2 but was the only competitor. Micas competition claims are inaccurate. If I am wrong please reference my error.

About this unoccupied person above, I can say two things. First, is that you must have a lot of time in your hands to waste supposedly checking people's credentials, doing your little research and coming back on this site personally attacking Amilcar, and only him. Seriously? Second, is that FOR SURE you must be some butt-hurt competition, who many of us have a pretty good idea who it might be... Someone who has nothing to show for, so it's obvious you feel better by trying (but not succeeding) to make your competitor 'look bad', because there is NOTHING else you are good for. You hide behind your computer and talk trash while Amilcar already invited you to show up at his academy. Competitor is not even the word, because there is nothing to compare to. Truth is, nothing will change from your testimonials, sorry to burst your bubble. In fact, it makes others even more interested in getting to know Amilcar, and training with this great guy. More advertising and more attention is always good because 99.9% of all people who have written testimonials on his page, have only good things to say about Amilcar and his academy. One person won't change that, especially when this person doesn't even have the guts to show a face and a REAL name. Amilcar is a great instructor and he is honest, committed, and a true friend to all in his team and this is why he succeeds and will always succeed in all he does, as well as his tight-knit team.. He doesn't need to make things up about his jiu-jitsu credentials to impress anyone or get students, like many others do. People go to his academy because they hear great things about him and his team, as well as all their accomplishments in championships, and tournaments, and they know that Amilcar is the person and instructor to go to, if they want to get ahead in the game and master the TRUE art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. If I were you, I would stop wasting time coming here, talking trash and try to apply your time towards improving youself and your game, because you certainly need it. Good luck!

Mica is a personal friend and also the Greatest Instructor a person could ask for. I came back from Iraq as an injured Combat Vet. I have some permanent injuries that keep me from training as much I would like to. Mica makes Jiu Jitsu work for me and it has been theraputic for me. I may never be able to compete or train at 100%, but Mica makes sure that I learn ways that will work for me. He is definitely the Best in my Eyes!

This ME person can't even spell. Humm, I bet it's someone whose native language isn't English!!! Anyways, Mica is hands down the BEST instructor in Las Vegas! He has recently won the World IBJJF Jiu-jitsu Masters Seniors Championship as well as the 2012 USBJJF Nationals both GI and no GI... I'm pretty sure that's enough said about his skills and capabilities, and NO ONE can doubt or question that! He's an amazing person/instructor and he does commit and dedicate most of his time to his jiu-jitsu family. So many people have been loyal to Mica throughout the years, and they support him, and love him as a true friend and part of their families, and I'm proud of him for what he does, and the person he is! Mica, keep up the great work you do with your team/academy. The NAYSAYERS will always be there, but they'll NEVER, EVER get to you. As Anderson Silva says: "Nunca serão, jamais serão!"

I came to Mica's gym as a purple belt and he could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Mica's kind-hearted attitude and warm is emulated through his students, I felt very comfortable right away as everyone was very open to sharing their time and knowledge. I've been to many different gyms and academies and Mica is honestly the most impressive instructor I've ever had the pleasure learning under and his gym is perfect for veterans looking to sharpen their skills or for someone who is just looking to get started.

Professor Mica is the BEST ever!!!!! Not only he teaches effectively and knowledgable, but he is also a very humble and down to earth. He is also good friend and treats his students/team like a part of his family. When I first joined this gym, he welcomed me with open arms regardless where I had previous training. Couldn't ask any more from Professor Mica. Without him, my Jiu Jitsu wouldn't ascend to another level. Thank you Professor Mica! Oss!! I would highly recommend training with Professor Mica!
