Bruno Malfacine Biography

Bruno Malfacine was born on August 28, 1986, in Duque de Caxias (Rio de Janeiro State), Brazil. Bruno started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu when he was 11 years old (1998) under the instruction of Carlos Santana. He began by his uncle’s influence, a BJJ enthusiast and student.

Although talented and interested in Jiu-Jitsu, Malfacine’s training was interrupted at the rank orange belt rank after coach Santana stopped training to focus on his profession.

Malfacine’s Jiu-Jitsu career nearly ended there and then, but with his family’s support, particularly from his uncle, Bruno restarted his training routine with Vinicius Amaral, founder of Academia Game Fight, an affiliate of GFT (Gama Filho Team – later changed its name to Grappling Fight Team).

Under the coaching of professor Vinicius Amaral, Bruno Malfacine achieved his blue, purple, brown and black belts (late 2006). By the end of 2008, Malfacine had the opportunity to train with “The General” Fabio Gurgel, one of the best BJJ coaches in the World at the time, and the leader of Alliance’s Team in Brazil.

At the Alliance team, Bruno’s career flourished and he quickly established himself as the best roosterweight of all time in the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

    Even though he is with Alliance, shouldn't his black belt reflect him being part of GFT?
