Alvaro “Huge” Morello


“I want to help every student here achieve their goals,” says Coach Al “Huge” Morello. Known for both his technical proficiency and his unique brand of “edgy” humor, Huge has trained with Coach Alder Hampel since 2011 and is on track to receive his 10th Planet purple belt in 2014.

Huge is adept in both gi and no-gi jiu jitsu, and enjoys working with students to refine their techniques, get in shape, and prepare for competition.  In particular, Huge excels at helping new white belts adapt to the 10th Planet system while having fun and staying injury-free.  “I get so much out of jiu jitsu and I want to share that with everyone that enters our gym.”
