Adele Fornarino Biography

Adele Fornarino was born on September 17, 1999, in Melbourne, Australia, where she was raised.

A sporty child from early on, Adele played competitive football (soccer) from the age of 7 up until her 14th birthday. During this period, more specifically in 2009, 10-year-old Fornarino also added jiu-jitsu to her weekly activities.

Fornarino’s first instructors were David Hart, David Christopher, and Lincoln Handcock, coaches who stood by her as she climbed through the belt ranks.

At the age of 16, two years after she quit her soccer career, Adele started embracing the competition scene and began her incursions on to international territories to compete. During her times abroad, Fornarino had the chance to work with a number of different teams and coaches. This habit would persist for most of her career.

Her performances on the global circuit allowed Adele to contemplate a career out of jiu-jitsu and a full time training schedule. This decision was finally made once the young Australian athlete turned 18.

Arguably her breakthrough moment as a jiu-jitsu athlete took place during her brown belt campaign, when Adele conquered an IBJJF World No-Gi title, the ADCC Oceania Trials spot, a Pan American silver medal, and a few other important trophies.

In December 2022, after her successful brown belt run (which lasted for nearly 4 years), Adele Fornarino was promoted to black belt by her long-time instructor, David Hart.
