Ary Farias Biography

Ary Farias was born in Manaus, Brazil. He started training Jiu Jitsu at the famous ASLE academy when he was 11 years old. Ary Farias had always been a big sports enthusiast, fighting sports in particular, so it was a small step until he picked up on BJJ.

Farias’ first BJJ instructor was none other than world champion Ronaldo Jacare who taught the kid’s classes at ASLE. Ary trained under Jacare’s tutelage until he was 16, working with the BJJ star every day, even sharing a house with Ronaldo in the ASLE training camp. By the time Ary got to 16 years of age he was already a huge prospect in BJJ winning every major regional tournament he entered. As Ary Farias was introduced to the adult’s classes his tuition was handed to ASLES’ head coach Henrique Machado, Ary’s temper collided with that of the head coach, ultimately leading Ary to leave the gym. As Ary had met and befriended Alain “Finfou” in one of the many tournaments he competed at, he asked Alain if he could train with him at his gym the Fightzone academy, where Alain trained under the guidance of Ricardo Vieira. “Finfou” intervened on Ary’s behalf and Ricardo Vieira accepted Faria in his gym, which involved a move to Rio de Janeiro.

Moving to Rio de Janeiro Ary Farias dedicated all his time to his BJJ career, training his strength and conditioning in the famous X-Gym with Rogerio Camões and his Jiu Jitsu with Vieira at Fightzone, the headquarters of Checkmat in Rio. This union was extremely fruitful and Ary Farias started to be regarded not only as a regional talent, but as a world wide prospect.

In his time with Checkmat Ary Farias became very close to another important “up and coming” team mate, Yuri Simões, the two became very close friends to the point that Simões’ family ended adopting the young Ary Farias. After a few years with the Checkmat team, Ary received his brown belt from Ricardo Vieira (2009), but in an unexpected change of events, on March 2010 Ary moved to the Atos team together with his brother Yuri. Though his brother soon returned to Checkmat, Ary continued with Atos, receiving his black belt from Ramon Lemos the leader of the team, in a ceremony held in Rio Claro on November 2010. On Ary Farias’ first competition as a black belt, the European Open, on the 30th of January 2011, Ary won his first gold medal at the highest level in BJJ in a final match fought against one of the most dominant rooster weight in history, Bruno Malfacine. A fight won by 6×4 (points).
