Biography

Multiple time World Champion, Professor Ailson “Jucão” Henrique Brites began practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of 10.[2] His uncle, Amilton Brites, a long-time practitioner of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, brought both Jucão and his brother, Admilson "Juquinha" Brites, to the Academia Serrana in Teresópolis. Jucão's first teachers were his other uncle, grandmaster Geny Rebello, Rebello's son Professor Cirillo Azevedo, and Professor Elias Martins.[3]

While still in high school, Jucão was introduced to the Machado brothers, who were already well known for their Jiu-Jitsu. After 11 years of training at the Academia Serrana, Carlos Machado invited Jucão to train under Carlos Gracie Jr. at his famous academy Gracie Barra. After several more years there, Jucão received his black belt from Carlos Gracie Jr. on January 23, 1993.

In August 1995, Jucão's uncle Grandmaster Armando Wriedt, invited him to move to Brasilia. Jucão began teaching classes there at the Academia Dalmo Ribeiro.

In his nearly 40 years of training and teaching, Jucão has formed many internationally recognized athletes, both as champions and professors of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. As a competitor, he has fought in over 1000 Jiu Jitsu matches and won many championships.[4]

You can find Jucão most days of the week happily rolling with his students in Manhattan, NY and Garwood, NJ. Jucão founded his US school in 2008 Equipe Jucão USA in New York and it has been growing ever since. He also regularly teaches at Modern Martial Arts NYC on the Upper West Side, Storming Mountain Academy in White Plains, New York and Ronin Jiu Jitsu Academy, Parisi Fitness Center Garwood NJ, and Battle Ground MMA in New Jersey.
