Alberto Crane: Modern-Day Renaissance Man: Entrepreneur, Athlete, Coach & Father

Alberto Crane is a 5th-degree Jiujitsu Blackbelt, UFC Vet, and Owner of Legacy Academy in LA.

Alberto became obsessed with Jiujitsu and moved from New Mexico to Brazil, to pursue mastery in jiujitsu after clarifying his goals when he read “Think and Grow Rich”, by Napoleon Hill.

“Millions of men go through life in misery and poverty because they do not possess the right plan.” (Napoleon Hill)

Alberto didn’t let his early competition success deter him, losing many of his early tournaments before eventually winning the Mundials (Brazilian World Championships) under the mentorship of Jiujitsu legend “Draculino”, before testing his jiujitsu in MMA and winning the King of the Cage title in his third fight. 

His life changed when he was diagnosed with MS and was led to believe he was going to spend the rest of his life on pharmaceutical drugs with massive limitations in the future.  While still competing in Jiujitsu, and refusing to quit, Alberto discovered Tac-Fit and has found ways to naturally heal his body, ease his pain, and even bring more mental clarity.  

Alberto now spends time spreading the practices and benefits of Tac-fit, hosting the Alberto Crane Show Podcast, and teaching Jiu-Jitsu at his schools in California.
