Alexandre Valverde – Xandinho
Alexandre Augusto Valverde Pinto – Xandinho , 32 years old.
My name is Alexandre Augusto Valverde Pinto – Xandinho, I’m 32 years old born in Valinhos, small city of Sao Paulo Capital. I have been practicing Jiu Jitsu since 2001.
I’m a Black belt graduated by my Master Roberto Tozi from Roberto Godoy G13 Jiu Jitsu Academy in Brazil.
In the past, I used to teach Jiu Jitsu in 2011, but I had to stop teaching to dedicate myself to the Environmental Engineering University, that I had begun.
The year of 2007 I started training boxing and Muay Thai, and in 2009 I have made my first professional MMA fight where I won by unanimous decision.
My training routine includes 2 sessions of training every second day, and in between I do weights.
Back in 2016, I came to Australia, and I started training in the Legacy with Professor Thiago Braga where I was very well received by the team and today I consider them my family here.
