Eduardo Gonçalves, commonly known as ‘Edu’, is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under the illustrious Francisco ‘Toco’ Albuquerque. Since settling in England, Gonçalves has cemented his spot as one of the toughest featherweights in Europe with medals at important tournaments such as the European Open, London Open (gi and no gi), Roma Open and British Championships.

Eduardo Gonçalves was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Edu’s first school was Gracie Humaitá, led by Royler Gracie. Then he decided to move to a school closer to his home where Francisco ‘Toco’ (black belt under Carlson Gracie) taught. Competition came natural to Gonçalves who started piling up medals in the junior categories, such as the Brazilian Nationals (1994/ 95/ 96) and the Rio State Championship (1995/ 96/ 97) Francisco Albuquerque remained Eduardo’s coach, throughout all belts, including his black belt, received it on November 2008. After his grade, Edu decided to move to England, where he established himself as one of the top competitors. In 2013 Eduardo Gonçalves also added MMA to his curriculum with two quick victories in his first two fights. In 2016 he moved to the United States of America collecting medals to some of the biggest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions such as Miami Open, New York Pro and Open, Pan America, World Master and Word No GI, just to name a few.
