ABOUT Mauricio Gomes
Mauricio started training with the legendary Rolls Gracie in 1977, and became one of only six people to be promoted to black belt by him in 1981.
Mauricio is perhaps best known for being the father and coach of the greatest BJJ athlete of all time, Roger Gracie.
On August 25th 2017 Master Mauricio Gomes, along with Masters Marcio Stambowsky, Romero ‘Jacare’ Cavalcanti and Sergio Penha, were promoted to 8th degree red and white belt. This momentous achievement represents 38 years as a black belt and over 50 years training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
