Since then I have been dedicated myself to training a successful competition team and now have champions of all ages from 4 to 54yrs old!

ALVARO ‘ALVIE’ OLIVEIRA Black Belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

I was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at a very young age. Returned to the sport in 2011 and in 2012 I was graded to Blue Belt by Thiago Domingues a student of Master Ricardo De La Riva. At that same time I started to help assisting the head coaches of the academy. As I continued on the journey, in October 2015 I was promoted to Brown Belt by professor Rinaldo Santos, 4th Degree Black Belt awarded by Master Carlson Gracie Sr. himself.

I have competed in multiple competitions in the United States and Australia, with great results in most of them. In early march 2015 I was able to win my first competition as a Brown Belt and in a record time of 45 seconds.

I moved to Sydney in March 2016 where I will continue the journey and help team mates to achieve their best in the sport under the tutelage of Professor Ben Miller. I am a firm believer of Old School traditional Jiu Jitsu as a base for any future modern champion.



Muay Thai

I started to train Muay Thai when I was 15 years old and boxing when I was 16 years old at Macaco GOLD Team. Macaco was a veteran of Pride Fighting Championships. I was trained by the Marcos Tragante at the legendary Chute Boxe Team, the crib of multiple UFC champions, like Anderson Silva, Wanderlei Silva, Fabricio Werdum and others.
