Fabio Gurgel

Born in 1970 in Rio de Janeiro, Fabio started his career in Jiu Jitsu at 13 years old. At 16, after winning a few titles as a blue belt and purple belt he became an instructor in the academy Jacare Jiu Jitus. At 19 he was promoted to black belt, being the first black belt from Master Romero Jacare. In 1993 he was one of the founders of the Alliance team along with Alexandre Paiva and Master Romero Jacare.

Each year the Alliance team grew stronger and soon became one of the most important Jiu Jitsu schools in Brazil. In 1997 Alliance began its expansion overseas with the inauguration of its first internation affiliate in Finland followed closely by an affiliate in New York in 1998. Today the Alliance team has approximately 150 affiliates throughout the world and is 10 TIME WORLD CHAMPION which proves our strength, dedication and what unites this team.
