Guga Campos Biography

Luis Gustavo was born on the 5th of June, 1985 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He started training Jiu Jitsu at age 12 under the tuition of Muzio de Angelis with whom he stayed until he received his blue belt. After that he decided to seek a different challenge in his life and moved teams to train under another very prestigious coach in Rafael Abi Rihan.

With Abi Rihan Guga truly developed as a Jiu Jitsu practitioner, and it was training with the Manimal black belt that Luis Gustavo found his calling in BJJ. Luis graduated as a purple belt and brown belt winning several important tournaments in the process.

He moved to the Fightzone academy shortly after his brown belt award, to train with Ricardo Vieira. It was then that he reached the pinnacle of the brown belt division by winning his first world title (2007), shortly after he was awarded his black belt by Ricardo Vieira. In August 2011 he started training at the Alliance gym in Rio de Janeiro with Alexandre Paiva.
