Patrick Gaudio: Record, Net Worth, Weight, Age & More!
Who is Patrick Gaudio?
Patrick Gaudio is a Brazilian black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, a European and Pan American champion, a budding instructor, and one of the most competitive professional Jiu-Jitsu players associated with GF Team. He was an IBJJF World Champion at brown belt and continues to work towards repeating that title as a black belt.
Gaudio was born in the summer of 1993, on July 2nd, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His father, Fabiano Gaudio, is a very well-established Jiu-Jitsu belt in his own right, and started his own gym as a passion project. His goal was to provide a place for the poor children in his area to come in order to escape the violence, drug abuse, and poverty that then ran rampant in parts of Brazil. His mission was a success, as the senior Gaudio has churned out many talented practitioners, including 2015 ADCC World Champion and UFC veteran, Davi Ramos.
Given his father’s BJJ pedigree and status, it comes as no surprise that a young Patrick Gaudio was more-or-less dragged to the mats at age four. He had trained for well over a decade before he began to enter competitions as a teenager and immediately drew the attention of the larger Jiu-Jitsu community. He won the junior championship title as a blue belt in 2009.
After his father promoted him to black belt in 2014, Gaudio realized that his potential could perhaps be best reached by joining with a team of other high-level professionals, so he sought a change. He found GF Team to be a good fit, and trained under Theodoro Canal in order to win his 2015 IBJJF World Championship title as a brown belt.
In the following years, Gaudio has continued to compete heavily on the international circuit and done well against some of the best grapplers on the planet. If his IBJJF European Open Championship in 2020 is any indicator, we’ll be seeing Gaudio atop many more international podiums before he’s ready to hang up the gi.
