Gilson Nunes Biography

Gilson Nunes was born on April 20, 1990 in Fortaleza – capital city of the north Brazilian state of Ceará.

As a 12 year old Gilson and his friends were drawn to the local martial arts club in the Bairro Parquelândia neighbourhood. There they met coach Paulo Ivano (also known as Maninho), who initiated the group in jiu jitsu.

Gilson participated in his first competition after one week of training, with his talent shining through instantly. Nunes won his division that weekend which boosted his interest in the sport and its tournament outlet.

While developing his BJJ skills Gilson also added mixed martial arts (MMA) sparring as well as boxing and muay Thai training, eyeing a career in cage fighting. He entered the ring on 4 occasions, but soon understood how hard it was to reconcile both MMA and training with the gi. He chose to end his MMA career with a 3-1-0 record to pursue his true love – jiu jitsu.

With coach Paulo Ivano giving more focus to the MMA component of grappling, Gilson started spending more time with Ronaldo Cruz – who taught jiu jitsu under the same team banner (Evolution JJ) as Ivano. Cruz’ classes were more gi orientated, and naturally Nunes shifted his training to coach Ronaldo “Raspinha”, particularly as a brown belt. When the time came to promote Gilson to black belt, both Ronaldo and Paulo tied the belt around Nunes’ waist (March 2010).

As a brown belt Gilson started earning a living through jiu jitsu. He would later move to the United States where he settled, opening an affiliate of Checkmat JJ in Gulf Breeze – Florida.
