Jefferson Moura Biography

Jefferson Moura was born on October 28th, 1977. Though it is unclear exactly when this surfing aficionado and former personal trainer started training Jiu Jitsu, it is known, that he started with Carlos Augusto, receiving the grade of black belt in 1999 from Augusto, at the time he was already considered one of the top grappling prospects in the world, a claim he confirmed in the years that followed with several medals in the world’s most prestigious tournaments, and wins over important fighters such as Alexandre Sousa, Robert Drysdale, Eduardo Telles and many others.

On November 2009, as Carlos Gracie Junior and Marcio Feitosa left Brazil to manage Gracie Barra from the United States, many feared that this would be the beginning of the end for GB’s team in Rio. But with Jefferson Moura at the helm, the Barra team continued in good form and maintained the good performances and high standards. Though Moura has taken care of most classes in the gym, he still finds time to compete and be successful.
