Our Story

In April 2002 while still a purple belt, Guto began looking for a space that he could start teaching classes.  The only place available to him at the time was in his Mom’s house, specifically in the dining room.  Five months later Guto was promoted to brown belt after becoming the purple belt World Champion.

In 2004 Guto graduated to black belt.   At this time the space in his mothers home began its first expansion.  With the help of Guto’s students, walls were broken down and the mat space was increased.

In 2012, due to the growth of the team, a second expansion became necessary.  The house had been turned into a gym, with locker rooms and a large tatame.

In 2019 Guto opened his ATOS school in Brazil where he continued to hone his own skills while focusing on his students growth developing many champions.

In 2022, Guto made the decision to move to the United States and establish a school.

In 2023 Guto founded GCBJJ in Orlando, FL
