André Porfirio Biography

André Porfirio was born on November 24, 1997, in Santos, a coastal city in Brazil’s São Paulo district.

Drawn to combat sports from a young age, Porfirio entered a Thai boxing gym at the age of 10, influenced by a good friend who also trained the famous striking martial art. From there, one year later, Porfirio added karate to his extra-curricular activities.

In July 2011, Porfirio decided to add jiu-jitsu to his training schedule with Alexandre Ranieri as a coach. He quickly became fascinated with the sport and after 3 months decided to join a gym with a stronger focus in competition, choosing Valdir Canuto‘s (Tio Chico) academy for that purpose, the father of another growing star in the sport, at the time – Renato Canuto.

Although in his teens at the time, André was adamant that his future lied in jiu-jitsu, and with the consent of his parents, in December 2012, he moved to the state capital, São Paulo, to train full time with Cicero Costha, one of the country’s most respected instructors.

Arriving as a white belt, Porfirio earned his blue, purple and brown belt ranks from Costha, while becoming one of the biggest references in the colored belt divisions by conquering 4 world titles in that category.

During one of André’s visits to the United States to compete, he was offered a coaching position at a Renzo Gracie Academy affiliate in Orlando, Florida, which he accepted. Even though he loved the region, Porfirio quickly felt himself stagnating as an athlete without a strongly competitive environment from which to evolve. He decided to leave RGA but his love for Florida led him to one of the most iconic grappling gyms in the world, Roberto Cyborg‘s Fight Sports in Miami, which he joined in 2019.

Porfirio’s fruitful stay in Miami let to his black belt promotion, an event led by Roberto Abreu on June 17, 2020.
