Master Roberto Traven

Roberto Traven was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He first starting training in BJJ when he was 16 under Romero "Jacare" Cavalcanti. Before he started BJJ, he practiced many other sports, such as Judo, rowing, triathlon, and soccer. After years of training at multiple sports without much success, Traven decided to quit other sports and focus solely on BJJ. BJJ would never be the same.
