More on ADCC 2011 Absolute Champion: Andre Galvao

Andre Galvao: Why He Won ADCC 2011
After storming through both the 88kg weight and open weight divisions for double gold at ADCC, many are wondering what changed in Andre Galvao.

He placed third in the last 2009 ADCC. This year he looks stronger, tighter, and more confident in his stand up.

“After I won my division, I thought I had a chance to win in the open weight too,” says Galvao. “I got tough fights, but I was in great shape. It was my day.”

It was his day, after a 10-week camp of hard work and training with members of his Atos team and the new addition of Coach Joe VanBrackle.
