Some sad news for the Jiu-Jitsu world today.

Alliance black belt and GMA member Luis “Sucuri” Togno suffered a bad car accident last night in Charlotte, North Carolina. According to his academy website, Togno passed away at a local hospital at 11:19PM, due to the severe injuries sustained in the crash.

Master Romero Cavalcanti broke the sad news on Facebook.

Togno was the leader of Sucuri BJJ of Waxhaw.

One of his students wrote on FB about the terrible loss: “We will always remember him and continue to honor his legacy by carrying on with our training and by sharing what he has given us with others. Obrigado Mestre and may you rest in eternal peace.” said Jon Plyler.

GRACIEMAG.com and the GMA family extend its condolences to Togno’s friends and families.

He will be missed!

For those that have never heard of him....
