Muzio de Angelis Biography
Muzio de Angelis was born on the 25th of April 1972, in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. Muzio’s contact with the “arte suave” also known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu came very early in life. Muzio’s father, Pierino de Angelis – a black belt under Gracie Jiu Jitsu legend Joao Alvaro Barreto, started teaching him from age 5 and continued throughout the ranks awarding young Muzio all his belts up to blue.
De Angelis was awarded his purple belt by Sylvio Behring moving on to the illustrious Alliance, teaming up with Roberto Traven at the famous “Academia Strike”. In 1992 Muzio also started training his own team on the side, at the “Academia Corpo Quatro”, two years later he received his black belt from Traven.
The frienship between Roberto Traven and Muzio de Angelis grew strong, and when the “Academia Strike” closed it’s doors in 1997, they decided to open up an school together, the “Academia Traven & Muzio”. The academy grew successfully and with Traven leaving to the United States a few years later, Muzio ran the academy on his own also with great results.
With the break up in the Alliance team in the early 2000’s, Muzio helped form the new Brasa team, a team he helps manage together with many other historic figures such as Castello Branco, Felipe Costa, Octavio Couto, and a few others.
