Leonardo Nogueira Biography

Leonardo Nogueira was born on the 12th of May 1987 in the beach town of Guarujá, state of Sao Paulo – Brazil. Leo Nogueira started training Jiu Jitsu when he was 16 years old under the illustrious master Elcio Figueiredo, from the Integração team in Santos (also state of Sao Paulo). His tall and lanky frame (Leo is 1,90m/6’2”) made him a dangerous guard player which allowed him to start tearing up BJJ tournaments from early in his career, achieving a gold medal at the world championships while still a blue belt.

By the end of 2007, Leo switched training camps to work with one of the best and most organized teams in the world (Alliance). The change was very beneficial to Leonardo whom together with his team mate Antonio Peindado terrorized the heavy weight and absolute divisions all over the world.

On the 1st of July 2009 (shortly after winning the brown belt open weight division of the BJJ Worlds) Leo Nogueira was graduated black belt in a ceremony where Sergio Santos also received his black belt.
