Pablo Lavaselli is an Argentinian grappler who competes in the black belt division of the sport’s international black belt circuit — a rank awarded to him by Eduardo Duarte. Widely regarded as one of his generation’s top lightweights, a reputation earned while battling in the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) and Abu-Dhabi Jiu-Jitsu Pro (AJP) tours, one of Lavaselli’s most impressive achievements has been his training methodology, considering that most of Pablo’s development in the sport occurred under no coaching supervision as the Buenos Aires native trained mainly from his residence, with friends, from blue to black belt.

Pablo Lavaselli Biography

Pablo Lavaselli was born on May 31, 1995, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he grew up.

As a child, Lavaselli was adept at physical activities, with tennis being one of his passions and a sport he played extensively up until his teens. As he started reaching adulthood, however, Pablo lost his interest for the courts and understood he was training out of habit and for the many friendships he had in the game. Once he realized that sentiment, he decided to quit and turned towards mixed martial arts (MMA), a sport he had grown fond of.

At the age of 17, Pablo Lavaselli joined an MMA gym where a friend of his already trained. Although with the intention of testing his skills inside the fighting cage at some point, the young Argentinian soon realized he had much more fun in the grappling classes than he did in the striking ones. For that reason, he chose to leave the MMA academy and join a jiu-jitsu one.

Team 360 in Belgrano, Buenos Aires, was Pablo’s home for a while with coach Eduardo Amarante – the man who graded Lavaselli up until his blue belt. Shortly after the grading, however, Lavaselli decided to sever ties with coach Amarante due to personal differences and started training at home, with friends.

With vast experience as a tennis player, Pablo had the work ethic as well as a strong idea of how his training should be structured. He built a mini gym, with mats at his residence and invited friends and others to come. There was no shortage of training partners for Lavaselli, as such his career, although very much under a “ronin” style training regime, did not stagnate.

During this process of training at his residence with friends and people of different gyms, Pablo connected with Eduardo Duarte and Miguel Alderete of Nova União. Although not part of these two black belts’ academies, they took charge of Lavaselli’s promotions, Duarte being the one who graded Pablo with his black belt on August 3, 2019.

Early in 2020, Lavaselli was invited by Andre Porfirio to come to Orlando, and train with Porfiro for a while, a move also supported by a BJJ project named “Agora”, led by Patrick Cooligan, which helps talented young athletes with their first steps in the sport. There Pablo had access to the best grappling circuit in the world, the USA, earning high praise when competing on the IBJJF circuit.
