Alessandro Capodeferro Biography

Alessandro Capodeferro was born on the 18th of October, 1975 in Bragança Paulista, Sao Paulo – Brazil. He started getting involved in martial arts through Muay Thai, a sport that led him to his first “Vale-Tudo” (No Holds Barred) fight. The fight was unsanctioned and had no time limit, and though Alessandro was confident that his abilities as a kickboxer would be more then enough to win the tournament that day, a Jiu Jitsu fighter made quick work of Capodeferro on the ground. He decided that he needed to learn Jiu Jitsu, he was 21 years old at the time.

His first instructors were Juliano Prado and Flavio Padilha, this duo awarded Alessandro his blue belt. All belts after that were awarded by Mario Dias, including his black belt, awarded on the 27th of July, 2008.
