Happy Birthday to Alliance Team Co-Founder Fabio Gurgel

Happy birthday to Alliance BJJ Team co-founder Fabio ‘The General” Gurgel. Fabio’s nickname “The General” name was given by Leo Negão, a former student of Gurgel who thought he had a general like demeanour, much like a general/leader amongst the Alliance team. Fabio turns 48 today and we want to thank him for all his dedication to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, not just for the Alliance team but for every BJJ practiser we own him thanks.

Fabio was on the front lines in the 90’s proving the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competing in the Jiu-Jitsu vs Luta Livre matches, super fight with future UFC Heavy Weight Champion Mark Kerr, UFC veteran and Multi-World BJJ Champion.

Happy Birthday Fabio!
