Felipe Pena “Preguiça” Biography

Felipe Pena was born on the 19th of October in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of 14, strongly influenced by his brother Augusto Vieira, also known as “Tio Chico” (Uncle Fester). Preguiça’s first coach was Mauro Gerald, who was responsible for the kids BJJ program at Gracie Barra Belo Horizonte, however, once Felipe Pena reached blue belt level, Marcelo “Uirapuru” and Sérgio Benini became his mentors.

Ever since Felipe Preguiça started training with the adults team at the academy, he decided that he wanted to follow the career of a Jiu Jitsu competitor. Through hard work, dedication and his natural talent  Felipe quickly started making his mark in Jiu Jitsu, winning important tournaments at purple belt and brown belt, before earning his black belt from the hands of Master Draculino and Marcelo Azevedo (Uirapuru). Felipe has also found inspiration in his BJJ style in another product of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy of Gracie Barra at Belo Horizonte, Mr Romulo Barral.
