Gabriel Gaudio Biography
Gabriel Gaudio was born on May 27, 1997, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
A sporty kid from an early age, Gaudio joined judo classes at the age of 4, a sport that had a strong role in Gabriel’s development as a grappling athlete.
Although a big fan of his judo classes, around the age of 10 Gaudio gained an interest in jiu-jitsu after weeks of watching the jiu-jitsu class (which took place after judo practice at his gym) while waiting for his mother to pick him up from training. One day, after the gym’s BJJ coach invited Gaudio to join the class instead of sitting outside waiting, he did, then starting a long-lasting relationship with jiu-jitsu.
Luckily for Gabriel, the gym’s instructor was none other than Júlio César Pereira, the leader of the GF Team and one of the foremost jiu-jitsu instructors in the world. Under the guidance of Júlio César, Gabriel developed into one of the hottest prospects in the country and internationally, particularly after his 2016 World Championship gold medal, a trophy that galvanized Gaudio to seek a career in the sport.
At the age of 19, Gabriel Gaudio moved to California, US, with his coach, César, to open the GF Team – Orange Academy. Sadly, due to the COVID19 pandemic, Gaudio was forced to return to Brazil where he was promoted to black belt on December 20, 2020.
