Lucas Lepri Biography

Lucas Lepri as born on September 19th, 1985 in a city called Uberlândia at the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. He was always an avid sports player as a child and in his early teens, playing and competing in sports such as Futsal (a form of indoors soccer), Judo, Swimming and also Skating and Capoeira. The first time he paid attention to Jiu Jitsu was in 2000 through a Brazilian MTV program called “Vinte e Poucos Anos” (“Twenty odd years” in a rough translation), were Fernando Pontes (a Jiu Jitsu World Champion) showed his training routine coming up to the Pan American Competition.

After this guest appearance by Pontes, Lucas was fascinated by the sport and decided to find a Jiu Jitsu academy to try it out. A few weeks later, Lucas Lepri did his first warm up of many to come at his first instructor’s gym, the name of the instructor was Elan Santiago, a man that would become very important in Lucas’s rise to Black belt glory.

After a near miss in 2005 as a Brown Belt, achieving Silver Medal at the Mundial (World Championsips) and a 3rd Place at the Pan Ams in the following year (2006), Lucas Lepri was awarded his Black Belt. It came as a shock to most of the BJJ community when in 2007 he achieved the biggest victory possible in BJJ in his first year as a Black Belt, the World Champion Title (in 2007).

With the amazing boom of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in America, the Alliance academy was in need of an extra Black Belt to help with the teaching in their New York Academy, and so in 2008 Lucas Lepri moved to the American Metropolis. With his new home and new students, Lepri started one of his best competitive periods, achieving Gold at the Europeans and Pan American’s, Silver in the World Championships and Gold at the No Gi World Championships, gaining the recognition of the entire BJJ community. He also married his long time sweetheart Mayara in the same year.
