Alexander Trans Biography

Alexander Trans was born in 1989 in Denmark, he started training martial arts through traditional Jiu Jitsu (the Japanese form of Jiu Jitsu) when he was 13 years old. He trained for two years before finding the Brazilian style of Jiu Jitsu which he picked up from then on. Alexander was not too serious about his training for the first few years, but as he joined the Arte Suave gym in Copenhagen (Checkmat Team’s headquarters in the region) in 2009 he really started focussing more on competition.

The Arte Suave gym is run by Shimon Mochizuki, a black belt who has helped raise the game of grapplers such as Ida Hansson & Shanti Abelha (two of the gym’s top competitors), under Mochizuki’ guidance, Alexander began training 3 times per day, often making trips to Brazil to train with the likes of Leo Vieira (Sao Paulo), “Bob Esponja” Medeiros (Joao Pessoa) and Rico Vieira (Rio de Janeiro). All this hard training paid off and Trans really started to make his mark at an international level, winning 9 fights at the 2011 World Championships in both his weight class and the absolute division without giving out one single point to his competitors. He won everything he set his mind to in the brown belt division that year with the exception of the ADCC which he lost due to points against the veteran Fabricio Werdum, earning his black belt shortly after from the hands of the legendary Leo Vieira.

After many years training and competing for the Checkmat team,  on the second semester of 2015, Alexander Trans announced his switch to GF Team, an academy well known for developing great heavyweight competitors.
