Andre Galvao is one of the most exciting and dominant grapplers in the history of the sport. Recently, the IBJJF put together and released a five-plus minute video highlighting Galvao’s best moments in competition.
Feast your eyes on some of the most beautiful jiu-jitsu the sport has ever seen.
Galvao’s grappling accomplishments are far too many to list here. He has seen extensive success at a high level in both the gi and no-gi. He is a five-time IBJJF world champion in the gi. Many of the clips seen in the video above are from his world championship runs. In no-gi, Galvao is an ADCC weight and absolute champion and a four-time ADCC superfight champion.
Galvao is currently the owner and head coach of Team Atos, arguably the most dominant team overall in international jiu-jitsu competition. The team has produced countless elite competitors, including Kaynan Duarte, Lucas “Hulk” Barbosa, Josh Hinger, Jonnatas Gracie, and many more.
Galvao is not currently scheduled to compete again, but grappling fans worldwide have long been salivating for a potential match-up with current no-gi king Gordon Ryan, and the pair has been trading trash talk for years.
