Rest in Peace Sucuri. You may be gone, but you'll never be forgotten. Thanks for the lessons, friendship, and smiles
Sucuri Togno began training in the martial arts at the early age of seven. Started training in Judo around the age of 12. About 2 years after that was introduced to BJJ. He is the only certified Black belt under the legendary Jacaré Cavalcanti in the Carolinas. He is also the highest ranking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black belt in North and South Carolina and the only Black belt in North Carolina Certified under the Confederação Brasileira de Jiu-Jitsu (CBJJ) headed by Carolinhos Gracie and the Rio de Janeiro State Jiu Jitsu Federation (fjjrio) which is the oldest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation in Brazil which was started by Helio Gracie and now is headed by Renzo Gracie's Father Robson Gracie.
He has taught defensive tactics (Subject Control & Weapons Retention) to numerous Law Enforcement agencies and personnel (FBI, Mecklenburg county Sheriff Dept Trainees, DEA, Fire Dept Trainees and US Navy Seals, Marines, and the Air Marshall's just to name a few). He is recognized as the leading subject control and weapons retention instructor in the Carolinas. Luis is also the President of the North Carolina Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation.
Following the strict teaching methods of Jacaré Cavalcanti, the Alliance Jiu-Jitsu Of Charlotte provides the purest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the Carolinas. At the Alliance you grow as a family. That is why the Alliance is the #1 Team in the World winning the World Jiu Jitsu Championship 2 years straight 98,99 and then again in 2008. The list of Alliance Champions is all a reflection of Jacaré as a person, friend, coach, and instructor.
