Andrew Soares Biography

Andrew Soares was born on October 21, 1999, in Manaus, the capital of the Brazilian state of Amazonas.

Jiu-Jitsu appeared in Andrew’s life by the influence of a family member. Excited about the sport, Soares joined Darlony Rideen Academy in 2008, at the age of 8 and remained there through all the kids’ belts.

As an orange belt, Andrew started taking jiu-jitsu seriously and making plans to become a professional athlete. As a blue belt, he decided to move to a more competitive team so he could pursue his goals and started training with Carlos Holanda.

Under the guidance of Holanda, Andrew Soares became one of the top prospects in the Manaus region – one of the sport’s most prosperous developers of talent – which earned him an offer from Team Vision, a professional jiu-jitsu squad based in the country of Qatar, led by Fabricio Moreira.

Splitting his time between Qatar and Manaus, Andrew Soares was promoted to the black belt rank in March 2022 from the hands of coach Carlos and Darlony Rideen with whom he maintained a student-coach relationship throughout his career.
