Prof. Art Alvarado

Prof. Art Alvarado is a 4th Degree Black Belt in Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has 28 years of combined experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Wrestling. He started his martial arts training when he wrestled for Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe Springs, California. He began training at the Gracie Academy in Torrance, California in September 1994 after he witnessed Royce Gracie submit Kimo Leopoldo in UFC 3 with an armlock. The Gracie Academy was owned by Rorion Gracie, the creator of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. There he had the privilege of training with Rorion, Royce, Relson, Rolker, Robin, and Grandmaster Helio Gracie. It was also there that he met and trained with Master Caique Elias. Grandmaster Helio Gracie considered Master Caique the most technical student outside of his sons! Shortly after receiving his blue belt, Prof. Art entered into the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Program. On top of his regular training, he had to attend separate classes on how to be an instructor! The Gracies believed being a tough fighter/competitor doesn’t automatically make you a good instructor; YOU HAD TO BE BOTH! On many occasions Prof. Art had to teach classes in front of Royce, Rorion, Grandmaster Helio and the other instructors! By being in the instructor program, Prof. Art had to know all aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Sport, Self-Defense, and Vale-Tudo (No-Rules)! Prof. Art moved to Houston in the summer of 2000 and is now the official representative for Team Caique Jiu-Jitsu! He is eager and ready to teach anyone who is sincere in learning the art that changed his life: Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
