A Little Bit About Me
Maurino Loureiro is native Brazilian and began training at the “Academia Gracie – Rio de Janeiro” in the 90’s before the great success of the Gracie style was acclaimed around the world. He was admired of the unique style of take the fight quickly to the ground and controls the situation, and most of time, against larger opponents. During all this period at the school he practiced and participated in championships as well in seminars and was able to learn not only from Helio but from almost all his sons: Rorion, Relson, Rickson, Rolker, Royler, Royce and Robin.
He had the honor to receive his Black belt directly from the hands of Royler Gracie and Rolker Gracie, ones of the most skillful and adept members of the Gracie clan and the most sought after instructors in the martial arts world.
In 2011, he moved to United States. Always practicing the gentle art he decided to share the Jiu-Jitsu philosophy providing group and private classes.
Maurino Loureiro is also certified from American Heart Association in Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED training.
