Marco Alvan - Advanced Open Guard

Marco Alvan is the head Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor for Team Link in Ludlow, Massachusetts. One of his most famous students is UFC fighter Gabriel Gonzaga. Marco has been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 1988. When Marco was a teenager he had the privilege of training with Master Jorge Pina Barbosa.

It was Jorge Pina who introduced Marco into the Gracie Barra school. At the Gracie Barra school he trained under Master Carlos Gracie, Jr. and trained alongside Ryan and Renzo Gracie. At the age of 19 years he joined the Brazilian Army and stopped training at Gracie Barra. However, as the Gracie Barra gained popularity, the Gracie family opened a new location close to his home in Rio de Janeiro. The head trainer at this academy was Master Carlos Augusto, a 4th degree black belt under Master Reylson Gracie.

Alvan is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Master Carlos Augusto. He teaches at various Team Link schools throughout Massachusetts.
