Marco Alvan's father is from Peru, he trained judo from 8 to 15 years old and has been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 1987 at age of 15. When he was a teenager, he had the privilege of training with Master Jorge Pina Barbosa. It was Jorge Pina who introduced Marco to the art of BJJ. Marco's brother brought him into the Gracie Barra school. At the Gracie Barra school he trained under Master Carlos Gracie, Jr. and trained alongside Ryan and Renzo Gracie. At the age of 19 years he joined the Brazilian Army and stopped training at Gracie Barra. However, as Jiu Jitsu gained popularity, a professor of the Gracie family opened a new location close to his home in Rio de Janeiro. The head trainer at this academy was Master Carlos Augusto, a 4th degree black belt under Grandmaster Reylson Gracie.
Alvan is a third degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Master Carlos Augusto. He teaches at various Team Link schools throughout New England.
