Carlos Henrique "Caique" Elias (born October 30, 1957) is a 7th degree red-and-black belt master of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). After starting his martial arts training in judo at age 15, he began training in 1975 with the Gracie family at the original Gracie Humaitá academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 1982, Elias became one of only eight non-Gracies ever to receive his black belt directly from Hélio Gracie.[1]

Elias taught at the Gracie Humaitá academy for many years while competing in tournaments.[2] His most recent tournament victory was in the Brazilian nationals in 1995.[citation needed] In 1996, Elias moved with his family to the United States to teach at the new Gracie Academy in Torrance, California, which was expanding rapidly thanks to the popularity of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
