OUR ACADEMY

IN MORE THAN 20 COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE

COME TO KNOW OUR STRONG AND INNOVATIVE TEAM


Atos was founded by two friends who shared the same religious beliefs and an intense passion for Jiu-Jitsu. The word “Atos” is the Portuguese word for “acts,” which specifically references “The Book of Acts” in the bible, based on the belief that “God can do amazing things through ordinary people, when He empowers them through His Spirit.” Atos Jiu-Jitsu, founded in 2008 by Prof. Andre Galvao and his friend Prof. Ramon Lemos, has become one the most recognized and respected names in the Jiu-jitsu industry.

As one of the smallest teams in the sport, Atos has influenced the way the world practices and defines modern jiu-jitsu. Atos Jiu-Jitsu is linked to the evolution of the 50/50 guard, leg drag, and berimbolo. The original Atos team included names of Black Belt World Champions such as, Prof. Andre Galvao and Prof. Ramon Lemos, Guto Campos, Claudio Calasans, Bruno Frazatto, Gilbert Burns, Rodrigo Caporal, Ary Frias, Rafa and Gui Mendes, and Davi Ramos.

BRUNO FRAZATTO


LINEAGE: MITSUYO MAEDA → CARLOS GRACIE → CARLSON GRACIE → OSVALDO PAQUETA → ORLANDO SARAIVA → MARCELO FERREIRA → BRUNO FRAZATTO
Frazatto is thankful to God for all of the opportunities that have been provided him through Jiu Jitsu and he is grateful for the blessings of continued good health that allows him to do what he loves for a living.

Born in Campinas, the interior of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Bruno Frazatto began training Jiu Jitsu at age 14. He first began training at Master Marcelo Ferreira’s academy until he was promoted to purple belt. After three months as a white belt, he was encouraged by both Master Marcelo and Frazatto’s grandfather to compete at regional championships where he became the champion as a white belt. It was after his first World Championship competition as juvenile blue belt where Frazatto took second place when he realized that this was what he wanted to do with his life; make Jiu Jitsu his profession. It was then when he began to dedicate himself full-time to the sport and to competing. From then on Frazatto has continued to win titles.

A landmark moment in Frazatto’s life was the death of his grandfather, Douglas Frazatto. Douglas Frazatto was a hero to him and one of his greatest example in life. Having been one of his biggest supporters, Frazatto dedicated one of your most important title of his career, the 2002 adult blue belt world champion, to his grandfather the year that he passed away.

As a purple belt, Frazatto decided to look for a team with greater structure that would enable him continue to develop his Jiu Jitsu. In 2003, he began training under Professor Roberto Godoi and Professor Robert Tozi and their team, where we would go on to earned his black belt in 2005.

By 2007, Frazatto joined Team Brasa where, after having spoken with Leonardo Viera, he began training out of the city of Sao Paulo. Then in 2009, Frazatto began training with the newly created Atos Jiu Jitsu – a team that made a name for itself in competitions at the black belt level introducing the modern Jiu Jitsu style that is beautiful to watch. As was a natural path of many BJJ fighters, Frazatto dedicated himself to fighting MMA for a four years, upon invitation from Rodrigo Minotauro Frazatto represented Team Nogueira/Black House.

For Frazatto, Jiu Jitsu is not just a profession. Rather, he considers Jiu Jitsu to have been an essential part of his education, formation as a person, and in leading a healthy lifestyle. His objective is to pass along his technical knowledge and life experience of the sport on to his students and to change others’ lives through the sport.
