Hi, I’m Alberto Crane. I’ve had the honor of having many conversations with extraordinary people. I created The Alberto Crane Show so that I could record these conversations and share with you their wisdom, their voices, their stories.
Every week I share two podcasts. Just click on any podcast to find your preferred podcast channel, or subscribe to that channel directly.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 5th Degree Black Belt – I moved to Brazil shortly after high school and trained at the Gracie Barra Academy in Rio De Janeiro and Belo Horizonte. In 2001, I was the first American to receive a black belt under Gracie Barra renowned Professor “Draculino” and Master Carlos Gracie, Jr.
MMA Fighter – In 2002 I began my career in MMA. I was King of the Cage Lightweight Champion, Ring of Fire Champion and I had the opportunity to fight in Asia, Latin America, Europe and even UFC. What I’m most proud of is out of my 15 wins, I have 14 submissions; always representing Jiu-Jitsu.
Entrepreneur – I have owned several Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gyms since opening my first business in 2000 in Santa Fe New Mexico. My goal is to create a community where we can come together, train and encourage each other to reach our potential. I currently own and operate Legacy, in Burbank, CA with two affiliates in Glendale, CA and Boyle Heights, CA. We teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for beginners, advanced and children. We also teach Bang Muay Thai Kickboxing, TACFIT®, Women’s Only Boot Camp as well as provide training through our online academy.
MS Survivor – While preparing for an MMA fight, I was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) and not cleared to fight. Instead of going through the stacks of books I was given to choose a medication , I remembered that I healed my neck by doing mobility drills that Master Coach Scott Sonnon taught me. I began training TACFIT® religiously, which not only reduced the symptoms of MS but until now, have completely dissipated.
TACFIT CEO and Team Leader – I was promoting the workshops and seminars because of how strongly I believed in the training system and for a year I worked really hard to become a TACFIT Certified instructor, Level 1, Level 2 and Team Leader. Now as CEO my mission is to change a billion people’s lives through TACFIT®.
Creator, Executive Producer Mini Documentaries & Back Stories – It takes courage, dedication and determination to win a fight. Most times, it’s you against yourself. I wanted to document the stories of our TACFIT® Team Leaders. These back stories into their lives capture the sacrifices endured in the pursuit of excellence. I have continued to create and executive-produce these mini documentaries with the intention that they will inspire anyone who sees it to become their best, too.
Books – Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill is a book that has been of great influence to me.
Always do your best and never give up.
