“I know Prof. Bruno Fernandes for almost 20 years. I had the privilege to see a young teenager training and developing his skills inside the main Gracie Barra Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and I always saw that he was one of a kind.

His technical level was always superb, his calmness, skill and results on high-level competitions were always incredible. But most of all, He was polite, fair, brave, a team player and intelligent. Bruno got his well-deserved Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu and also graduated as a Doctor, turning later into an authority in eye cancer studies; All that, always, with a smile on the face, with honesty and unconditional love for Jiu-Jitsu and Gracie Barra.

I am honored to call him my friend and I am a big fan of him as a Professor, athlete and person.”

“I have the privilege of being part of Bruno`s career and life since we were kids. Now that I`m a parent, what I can say about Bruno is very simple: he is a role model for my son, and I believe he is the son that every parent would be proud to have. To be more specific, he is a phenomenal athlete, the best in everything he does, and extremely determined.

To the best of my knowledge, he has accomplished everything he has ever wanted to do. He quit his career as an eye doctor after 15 years of studying to dedicate himself fully to the martial art, which perfectly exemplifies his passion for it. Bruno is and always will be recognized as a person that made a difference in the jiu-jitsu world.”

“I’ve known Prof. Bruno Fernandes since my first visit to Rio as a blue belt back then. He always caught my attention on how technical a fighter can be. I was fortunate to learn from him then and see/feel how someone can move effortlessly using no strength. And that’s what I looked to discover in BJJ. For sure he made a big impact on my perception of BJJ throughout my carrier. And since then, we became good friends and I got to know him outside of the mats learning so much about life from him. I’m very proud that we are part of the same team and family. Thanks for everything.”
