History of the alliance association

In the 1980s Master Romero Cavalcanti (Jacaré) and his two black belt students, Fabio Gurgel (General) and Alexandre Paiva (Gigi) followed different paths in search of success in their own academies. However, in all the championships they met, they ended up competing among themselves, creating an unfair rivalry because of their origins. That is why in 1993 the three made the decision to form an alliance, ALLIANCE, so they could go hand-in-hand in all the championships.

Romero “Jacaré ” Cavalcanti

Born in 1952, Jacaré began his BJJ training at the age of 11. At age 16, he joined the famous Gracie School in Copacabana, where he grew up. Jacaré and the Gracies lived in the same neighborhood, so he met them all. He trained BJJ with Carlos Gracie Jr., Gracie Crolin, Santos Fabio, Mauricio Gomes, Machados, Rickson Gracie, and many others.

Fabio Gurgel “General”

Born in 1970 in Rio de Janeiro, Fabio started his career in Jiu Jitsu aged 13. At 16, after winning some titles as a blue and purple belt, he became an instructor at Jacaré Jiu Jitsu Academy. At the age of 19, he received his black belt — the first black belt of master Romero Jacaré. In 1993 he was one of the founders of the ALLIANCE team alongside Alexandre Paiva and master Romero Jacaré.

Alexandre Paiva ”Gigi”

Alexandre Paiva began training Jiu Jitsu in 1983 with Professor Jacaré in Ipanema training on average 8 hours a day. He began to stand out among the students and began participating in competitions as a blue belt. In 1991 he obtained his black belt from Jacaré and began a new phase in his career. He was a teacher at Jacaré Academy, as well as the Ipanema Team 1 Academy and the Federal Club, Strike academy.
