Eduardo Tinoco Biography
Eduardo Tinoco was born in 1995 in São Paulo, growing up in the Eastern side of the well known Brazilian state.
Tinoco’s training started early in life through the hands of coach Carlos Alexandre (also known as Alê) at Academia Colisão (Colision Academy). Eduardo stayed with professor Alê up until his purple belt, a time when he joined the Almeida brother’s academy (Gustavo, Caio and Diogo) – working mainly with Gustavo.
At the time when Tinoco joined the Almeida brothers’ work group the team competed under the Ryan Gracie Academy banner, this being who Tinoco represented during that period. When both teams split on September 2016 Tinoco remained under Almeida JJ in Brazil’s national circuit, often representing Atos JJ internationally (given that the Almeida’s paired up with the well known California based team).
After a tremendous year as a brown belt, Tinoco was promoted to black belt by his coaches Gustavo and Caio Almeida. A ceremony that took place on December 10, 2017.
