Evandro Nunes

GST Master Instructor

Evandro Nunes is a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu black belt who was born and raised in Brazil. After several years of success at the elite BJJ competition level (World No-Gi Championship, Pan American Championship, Abu Dhabi Grand Slam, American Nationals, etc), Evandro immigrated to the United States and joined forces with Gracie University.

After spending several years learning all the Gracie techniques and teaching methodologies, Evandro was handpicked by Ryron and Rener to help lead the GST program based on his ability to connect with and captivate any audience. Today, he travels around the world orchestrating the 5-day GST Instructor Certification Programs which empower graduates with the skills and teaching methodologies to return home and share the life-saving techniques with their colleagues.

Nunes' profound knowledge, infectious enthusiasm, and deep gratitude for law enforcement officers and first responders, make the GST course a life-changing event for all those lucky enough to participate under his leadership.

Evandro embodies the principles of Gracie Jiu-jitsu on and off the mat and we’re lucky to have him as part of the family.
