Rodolfo Vieira Biography

Rodolfo Vieira was born on the 25th of September, 1989 in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. Rodolfo started his training in jiu jitsu to lose weight when he was 13 years old with coaches Arlans Maia and Bruno Souza. Rodolfo Vieira trained and competed for the pair achieving blue belt status at this academy. Rodolfo decided to change to Universidade Gama filho (which would later change their name to GFTeam – Grappling Fight Team) in search for a more competitive atmosphere and challenging training partners. GFT became Rodolfo Vieira’s home from their own, being awarded his black belt by the Grappling Fight Team’s leader and head coach Master Julio Cesar Pereira, a man who was of extreme importance in Rodolfo Vieira’s rise to world champion status.

Rodolfo Vieira truly made a mark for himself  in the competitive world of jiu jitsu by 2009 after he won the the World Pro Jiu Jitsu Cup trials in Brazil. The division in which he was was a combined brown & black belt category, he managed to conquer achieve top spot as a brown belt against high level black belts with tons of experience in top tournaments. Rodolfo Vieira repeated the deed on January 2011, this time as an established black belt winning his weight and the open weight division in the Brazilian trials of the World Pro Jiu Jitsu Cup and also winning the finals in Abu Dhabi. That same year Rodolfo also conquered the Pan American and the World championships in his weight and the absolute weight divisions.
