Andre Quiles Biography
Andre Quiles was born on the 3rd of December 1973 in Piraju (state of Sao Paulo) one of the main cities in Brazil for Muay Thai. Andre started training martial arts when he was around 3 years old in Judo, but by chance, in 1988 he discovered he was living next door to the founders of the famous Chute Boxe academy, an MMA based gym with a strong striking background which Andre immediately joined.
In 1991 Andre Quiles decided to start training Jiu Jitsu with the Gracie family, namely Ralph Gracie with whom Quiles received his blue belt (though the actual promotion ceremony was led by Ryan Gracie and his cousin Daniel Gracie) also spending time with the legendary Royler Gracie. When Ralph and Royler moved to the United States, Andre Quiles took lessons from the guard magician, Nino Schembri who also joined the Chute Boxe academy to further develop his MMA skills and who awarded Quiles his purple and brown belt.
After Nino Schembri also moved to the United States, Quiles switched camps and started practicing BJJ with Leandro Vieira that graduated Andre Quiles as a black belt in 2010.
