Rodolfo Vieira trained and competed for the pair achieving blue belt status at this academy. Rodolfo decided to change to Universidade Gama filho (which would later change their name to GFTeam – Grappling Fight Team) in search for a more competitive atmosphere and challenging training partners. GFT became Rodolfo Vieira’s home from their own, being awarded his black belt by the Grappling Fight Team’s leader and head coach Master Julio Cesar Pereira, a man who was of extreme importance in Rodolfo Vieira’s rise to world champion status.
