Biography

Ailson Brites New York City earns its first fifth degree black belt with Ailson

Multiple time World Champion, Professor Ailson “Jucão” Henrique Brites began practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of 10. His uncle, Amilton Brites, a long-time practitioner of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, brought both Jucão and his brother, Admilson "Juquinha" Brites, to the Academia Serrana in Teresópolis. Jucão's first teachers were his other uncle, grandmaster Geny Rebello, Rebello's son Professor Cirillo Azevedo, and Professor Elias Martins.

While still in high school, Jucão was introduced to the Machado brothers, who were already well known for their Jiu-Jitsu. After 11 years of training at the Academia Serrana, Carlos Machado invited Jucão to train under Carlos Gracie Jr. at his famous academy Gracie Barra. After several more years there, Jucão received his black belt from Carlos Gracie Jr. on January 23, 1993.
