Aniel Bonifacio Biography

Aniel Bonifacio was born April 11, 1996, in Varginha, a municipality in southwest Minas Gerais state, Brazil.

Not particularly into sporting activities as a child, Aniel became aware of jiu-jitsu as a 14-year-old through a social project designed to occupy the children of his neighborhood. Bonifacio’s very first coach there was a local black belt by the name of Rodrigo Carvalho, a former student of the illustrious Paulo Rezende, who was the resident instructor at this social project.

Under Carvalho’s guidance, young Aniel quickly became one of the region’s top BJJ athletes, deciding to become a professional athlete as a purple belt. His hard work competing in Brazil’s national circuit led to his black belt promotion on January 2017, a promotion led by Aniel’s coach Rodrigo Carvalho.
