Michael Langhi Biography

Michael was born 1985 in Sao Carlos, a city in the State of sao Paulo – Brazil. He started his martial arts career at an early age in the Brazilian art of capoeira in the town of Londrina. It was at the capoeira gym that he met Rubens Charles, who would later become one of the best featherweight jiu jitsu athletes of all time.

Langhi’s first contact with jiu jitsu came about by the end of 2001 when Rubens invited Langhi to participate in one of his classes. Rubens Charles, also known as “Cobrinha”, was a purple belt then and was kick starting his new grappling academy in Londrina (Paraná).

Langhi immediately fell in love with jiu jitsu, earning his first international title at the age of 19 by winning the IBJJF World Championship as a blue belt. He repeated the deed in 2006 (purple), and 2007 (brown) before earning his black belt from Cobrinha (2008).

One year after earning his black belt, Michael Langhi won all 4 top tournaments in the IBJJF jiu jitsu circuit (European Open, Brazilian National, World Championship and Pan American), one of the toughest achievements in the sport, earning him the recognition as the best jiu jitsu competitor of 2009.
