“Volta Terere!”

Here is a great highlight reel of one of the greatest BJJ competitors and coaches to ever live, Fernando “Terere” Augusto. A lot of the newer people to Jiu Jitsu may not know who he is but has fought and beaten some of the best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athletes ever to step on the mat who themselves were black belt world champions in Brazilian and often much heavier than Terere!

In addition to this he was instrumental in helping develop Andre Galvao and Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles’s Jiu Jitsu games as their instructor at his former school/team TT Jiu Jitsu! Terere was just as famous for teaching Jiu Jitsu to kids in the poorer areas of Brazil known as “Cantalogo Favelas(Slums)” and bringing them to competitions at his own expense to encourage and motivate them as well as have their vocal support in the crowd!

Fernando "Terere" Augusto

Terere has been an influential part of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition history and you would be well versed to learn a little more about him. Sadly he suffered a massive addiction to drugs after a series of unfortunate events and has only recently appeared to be coming out of it and getting back to his former self. He appears to have beaten the drug dependency and is back training Jiu Jitsu! Let’s hope Terere returns too his former glory and thank Jiu Jitsu for saving his life! 🙂

Good Luck With Your Training And Happy Rolling!
