Ary Farias Biography

Ary Farias was born on October 22, 1989, in Manaus, Brazil.

A sporty child from early in his career, Farias went through an array of activities before finding his “calling” for jiu-jitsu at the age of 11, at the famous ASLE Academy.

Farias’ first BJJ instructor was none other than former world champion Ronaldo Jacare who taught the kid’s classes at ASLE. Ary trained under Jacare’s tutelage until he was 16, working with the BJJ star every day, even sharing a house with Ronaldo in the ASLE training camp.

By the time Ary got to 16 years of age he was already a huge prospect in BJJ winning every major regional tournament he entered. As Ary Farias was introduced to the adult’s classes his tuition was handed to ASLES’ head coach Henrique Machado, Ary’s temper collided with that of the head coach, ultimately leading Ary to leave the gym. As Ary had met and befriended Alain “Finfou” in one of the many tournaments he competed at, he asked Alain if he could train with him at his gym – Fightzone Academy in Rio de Janeiro – where Alain trained under the guidance of Ricardo Vieira. “Finfou” intervened on Ary’s behalf and Ricardo Vieira accepted Faria in his gym.

Moving to Rio de Janeiro Ary Farias dedicated all his time to his BJJ career, training his strength and conditioning in the famous X-Gym with Rogerio Camões and his Jiu-Jitsu with Vieira at Fightzone, the headquarters of Checkmat in Rio. This union was extremely fruitful and Ary Farias started to be regarded not only as a regional talent but as a worldwide prospect.

In his time with Checkmat Ary Farias became very close to another important “up and coming” teammate, Yuri Simões, the two established a strong friendship that led Simões’ family to adopt Farias. After a few years with the Checkmat team, Ary received his brown belt from Ricardo Vieira (2009), but in an unexpected change of events, in March 2010 Ary moved to the Atos team together with his brother Yuri. Although Simões returned to Checkmat soon after the switch, Ary continued with Atos, receiving his black belt from Ramon Lemos the leader of the team, in a ceremony held in Rio Claro in November 2010.
