Professor Fabiow Medeiros started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) during his childhood in his hometown São Paulo, Brazil. He moved to the United States, as a blue belt at the age of 15, and continued his BJJ training under the Renzo Gracie flag while also wrestling in high school to help improve his Jiu Jitsu.
At this young age he began competing in local BJJ events as well as major tournaments such as the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) world tournament, Pan Americans, and local opens.
As a brown belt, Professor Fabiow started his career as a BJJ tournament referee with the IBJJF. He now travels the world working at all the major events and refereeing all of the headline matches.
Professor has been teaching BJJ for the past 11 years, five as a colored belt and six as a black belt. For the past three years Fabiow has been teaching in the world famous Morumbi Academy in São Paulo Brazil, in charge of the technical development of over 250 students, from kids white belts to seasoned black belts.
As of today, Professor Fabiow is a 1st-degree black belt under Renzo Gracie and a judo brown belt under Clyde Worthen.
