Bruno Malfacine Biography

Bruno Malfacine was born on the 28th of August, 1986 in Duque de Caxias (Rio de Janeiro State), Brazil. Bruno started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu when he was 11 years old (1998) under the instruction of Carlos Santana. He began training via his uncle’s influence, a BJJ enthusiast who was also training BJJ at the time. Unfortunately Malfacine had to interrupt his training at orange belt because the coach, Mr Santana, stopped coaching.

Malfacine’s Jiu Jitsu career almost ended there and then, but with his family’s support (specially from his uncle) he restarted his training routine with Vinicius Amaral from the Academia Game Fight, an affiliate of GFT (Gama Filho Team – now Grappling Fight Team). With Professor Vinicius Amaral Bruno Malfacine achieved his blue, purple, brown and black belt. In the end of 2008 Malfacine had the opportunity to train with “The General” Fabio Gurgel, one of the best BJJ coaches in the World and the leader of Alliance’s Team in Brazil. Bruno did not turn down such an opportunity and moved to São Paulo to train at Alliance’s HQ.
