Famous Siblings In BJJ

We have recently seen the Ruotolo twin brothers (Kade and Tye) take the Jiu Jitsu scene by storm, placing in prestigious events like the IBJJF World Championship 2022 as new black belts. Having a sibling who trains with you can be a tremendous help as they continue to push you to get better. It also provides easy access to a training partner who can challenge you. The BJJ community has been blessed with many astounding sibling duos, trios, and multiple throughout the years with impressive accolades. We can't not mention the Gracie family and their cousins the Machado brothers.

Here are some of the biggest sibling names in Jiu Jitsu lately.
