Alexandre Ribeiro

Not enough can really be said about Xandre Ribeiro. He is considered the top BJJ competitor of all time, the school run by his brother and himself is one of the best in the world, and their knowledge of Jiu Jitsu has influenced and directed every generation since they began teaching. A man with such accomplishments would seem like someone so much larger than life, but Xande hasn’t let any of it go to his head. In fact, he is incredibly humble, polite, and friendly with everyone he encounters. He welcomed into his academy and discussed the current state of competition as he sees it, and what he considers the correct way to live the life of a martial artist.
