Eliana Carauni Biography

Eliana Carauni was born on January 28, 1994, in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she grew up.

Throughout her formative years, Carauni was always active in the sporting world with Artistic Gymnastics being her favorite subject, a sport she started at the age of 10 and in which she competed extensively. During her teens, Carauni added classical dance to her weekly activities for a while, and it was there that she met and befriended Miranda Galban, a person who would later become an important figure in Argentina’s jiu-jitsu.

Combat sports entered Eliana’s life at the age of 15 when she joined a CrossFit gym that also offered boxing classes. During her time there (4 years) Carauni boxed often, although she shifted her focus to jiu-jitsu after she was introduced to it by her friend Miranda Galban in 2013.

Eliana’s first experiences with BJJ were at the Sukata Academy with coach Luis Luengo (Lula). She remained there for 6 months, before switching to the De La Riva-affiliated gym under the guidance of Walter Alamo, Francisco Cuneo, Pablo Peirone, and Kevin Chierasco.

Although the DLR gym eventually split, Eliana remained under Walter Alamo’s banner as he went on to found his own jiu-jitsu team, Positive Jiu-Jitsu. Carauni competed extensively for Positive JJ and earned all her belt ranks from Alamo, with her black belt promotion taking place on December 20, 2020.
