Since 2013 the Gator Family has been a part of the Robson Moura Nations United Jiu-Jitsu Association. The connection started way before that.
In 2009 Coach Wallace changed careers to a sedentary job. He was used to being physically active. He found the West Volusia Academy of Mixed Martial Arts in Deland Florida who was a Robson Moura affiliate.
Coach Wallace was promoted to Green and Blue Belt by Professor Robson in 2011 and 2012.
In 2013 the West Volusia Academy of Mixed Martial Arts closed. Coach Wallace wanted to continue RMNU in Deland and started Gator Family Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu joining the association shortly after.
Professor Robson Moura lives in Tampa Florida with his wife and kids. RMNU Headquarters is also located in Tampa.
He is a 5th Degree Black Belt and International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation Hall of Fame Inductee.
