André Góis Jiu-Jitsu

Full Name: André Nascimento dos Santos Góis

Nickname: In Brazil, André is commonly known as Nêga – although the name is mostly avoided in the US due to it being connoted as offensive. The origin of the nickname goes back to a famous Brazilian YouTuber/comedian named Pranchana Jack, who had a viral song named “Nêga do Subaco Cabeludo“. André was a fan of the song and his friends, jokingly, compared Gois’ with the kid featured on the video, which quickly became associated with André. At first, Góis was called the full extent of the song name, but with time it was shortened to Nêga.

André Góis Biography

André Góis was born on October 8, 1996, in São Paulo, Brazil, growing up in Cangaiba, on the Eastern side of SP.

Growing up, André practiced a number of sports, with football (soccer), being his favorite. With time, and particularly after he found jiu-jitsu, all other activities were thrown on the backburner. It was also through soccer, in a round-about way, that Góis found jiu-jitsu.

At the age of 15, André broke his arm – for the third time, playing soccer. While placed on the sidelines due to his injury, Góis started playing computer games, becoming a big fan of EA Sports’ UFC, and it was through gaming that the young São Paulo native discovered jiu-jitsu, by getting to know the grapplers on that game. Curious about this martial art, after his arm healed up, André decided to join a friend who practiced the gentle art at a local police officers club, there starting his path in this sport.

Góis spent his first 6 months of jiu-jitsu under the guidance of Thiago Prado, but as André became growingly involved in the sport and decided to train more often than the classes that were offered by the police club, Prado guided the young athlete to Mestre Casquinha, (Luciano Nucci), who became his coach from then on.

Casquinha is widely regarded as one of the most prolific coaches in the São Paulo state, the man behind athletes such as Dimitrius Souza, Marcus Vinicius Ribeiro, Felipe Linhares, Juan Kamezawa to name a few. It was under this very competitive environment that André Góis prospered into one of the rising stars of the Brazilian circuit, earning all his rank upgrades, up to brown belt, from Nucci.

In 2016 purple belt André crossed paths with a student of Lucas Lepri at the Pan American Championship. Góis took the opportunity and meet the legendary lightweight. From that first interaction, Góis went on to do a few workshops with Lepri, and by 2018 an exciting opportunity arose: To spend 5 months in Charlotte, NC, training for the World Championship at Lucas’s academy. From that experience, André was then invited to be part of Lucas’ workgroup.

This close relationship with Lucas Lepri and his team led to Góis’ black belt promotion, in December 2019. A grading awarded by Lucas Lepri.
