Sylvio Behring recieves Masters Belt (7th degee)


Sylvio Behring recently recieved his 7th Degree in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from Grand Master Alvaro Barreto and witnessed by Grand Masters Flavio Behring and Joao Alberto Barreto. Sylvio has always been a very postive influence in my life and I’m happy to see him get the recognition he deserves. I am excited for the day he comes to our academy. Parabens Mestre!

Recently Anderson Silva was asked about his training with Master Sylvio Behring in a interview with Sherdog.com The following is an excerpt… “I’ve trained a lot with Master Silvio Behring, who gave me all the support on the Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He is a fantastic person. For two years, I’ve been training jiu-jitsu with the gi with him, and my ground is much better.”

Great video about the UFC Champ. In this video is the legendary BJJ Master Sylvio Behring (Master Flavio Behring’s son). I recieved my BJJ Black Belt from Sylvio Behring in 2003. He is an important personality in Jiu Jitsu and a strong influence in my life. I’m happy to see him get some recognition for his hard work and dedication to the growth of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Anderson said it best… “Its very important to respect everyone from the white belt to the black belt because thats how you get some place”. It’s not a coincedence to see the champ wearing a gi and training daily in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. See you on the Mats!
