2. Andre Galvao’s Biography

2.1. Who is Andre Galvao?

Andre Galvao, commonly known as Deco, is a 4th degree BJJ black belt under Luis Dagmar, and a renowned grappler who has worked extensively with Fernando Terere.

Deco is considered one of the finest competitors in the sport's history, having won many titles such as the IBJJF Pan American Champion (10 x), ADCC World Champion (6 x), IBJJF World Champion (10 x), IBJJF European Champion (2 x) and UAEJJF World Pro Cup Champion (3 x).

Andre Galvao also participated in mixed martial arts (MMA), retiring with a 5-2-0 record before becoming the head of the Atos Jiu-Jitsu Academy in California.

Galvao developed one of the strongest BJJ teams in the current history of the sport, leading the team's headquarters in San Diego. The Atos Squad is widely regarded as one of the best in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Galvao also wrote a book about martial arts titled “Drill to Win: One Year to Better BJJ” in 2010.

Currently, Andre is serving as the head coach at Atos Academy to many world champions and travels the world teaching jiu-jitsu skills, ideas, self-defense inspiration, and a jiu-jitsu lifestyle.

2.2. Andre Galvao’s Early Life and Amateur Fighting

Andre Galvao was born in São Sebastiao, Sao Paulo, Brazil on September 29, 1982.

When Andre was a child, his family moved to the Vale da Paraiba region, where he began his martial arts education via judo. The father of ADCC Champion Claudio Calasans, Calasans Camargo, was an early supporter of Deco’s judo career, having given him his first gi (kimono).

2.3. Journey to a Pro BJJ Athlete

Start of BJJ under Coach Luis Carlos Dagmar

Galvao began his jiu-jitsu career after being encouraged by his brother, who was a BJJ student at that time. Andre’s first coach was Luis Carlos Dagmar, also known as Careca. Andre’s talent was quickly recognized by Careca, who himself was a former student of Osvaldo Alves.

Training Under Fernando Terere

Galvao was just 16 at the time with only two years of training. Dagmar thought André's exceptional skill would serve better in a more competitive atmosphere, believing his academy to be too small for Deco's future. Therefore, Dagmar suggested Andre go train with Fernando Terere.

Deco’s talents improved dramatically under the guidance of Terere. Fernando was a world champion and a pound-for-pound best in the early 2000s, being one of the sport's most prominent fighters at the time.

Andre followed Terere for over three years throughout his break with the Alliance team, the birth of Master team, and shortly after the TT team, remaining undefeated in the purple belt class.

Galvao went on to win double gold medals in the IBJJF World Championship and CBJJO World Cup (now extinct) as a purple belt.

During that period, Andre became the first purple belt ever to win the IBJJF Grand Slam (Brazilian Nationals, Pan American Championships, and World Championship).

Elevation toBrown Belt

Andre Galvao obtained his brown belt from Fernando Terere after nine months of victorious purple belt training.

As a brown belt, he extended his winning streak, with only one loss in the Absolute Division to Ricardo Abreu at Copa do Brazil.

Promotion to Black Belt

Andre was scheduled to obtain his black belt in mid-2005, but this coincided with a series of events that diverted Terere's focus away from jiu-jitsu.

Because Fernando was out of the sport, Terere’s TT (Alliance jiu-jitsu team) partner and right-hand man Eduardo Telles took Andre to his hometown so Galvao could receive his black belt from his first master, Master Dagmar.

Quitting TT Team and Joining Brasa Clube

When Terere departed the sport due to personal issues, Andre left the TT team and joined Brasa Clube de Jiu-Jitsu

Andre believed in repetition and consistency throughout his early career. Unlike other top fighters , he dedicated himself to competing in all tournaments, not just the large ones. He frequently stated that he relied on this to continue to improve his skillset

Formation of Atos Team

Formation of Atos Team

Andre Galvao Vs Felipe Pena: 2019 ADCC World Championship


Andre Galvao achieved a historic victory against Felipe Pena in Sep 2019 at the ADCC World Championship, winning his fourth consecutive ADCC Superfight.

The match was intense at times, but slow and deliberate at others. The fight lasted the entire 30 minutes, including overtime.

Andre scored a takedown early in the bout, but it was before the points were recorded, thus he didn't get credit for it. Pena then spent a large amount of time attempting to sweep his competitor, but time ran out before he could do so.

Galvao attempted another takedown in overtime, but this time he went out of bounds. Galvao's second takedown also fell out of bounds, but when the referee re-started the battle, he got on top of Pena, winning the two points he needed to win.

Andre Galvao Vs Patrick Gaudio: 2017 Jiu-Jitsu World Championship


Andre displayed a remarkable performance at the 2017 IBJJF Championship and defeated Patrick Gaudio in the finals via split decision.

Deco used his guard to fully control the direction of the fight for most of the match. Galvao’s guard was so tight that Patrick’s attempts were rendered useless, leaving the referee no choice but to call a penalty for passivity.
