Arthur Detânico Biography
Arthur Detânico was born on March 02, 1994, in the Southern region of Brazil known as Serra Gaúcha (Gaucho Highlands).
Influenced by his cousin, who trained jiu-jitsu, Arthur joined ‘Academia JA’ of Mateus ‘Alemão’ Bernardi and Antônio “Jamanta” Moro at the age of 13, falling in love with the sport and its competitive outlet.
Although fully embedded in the jiu-jitsu lifestyle from early on in his training, it was only as a purple belt that Detânico started contemplating earning a living from grappling, particularly after being offered a coaching position at the gym.
Conquering plenty of local tournaments, always testing himself in the open weight division as well, Arthur kept progressing through the belt rank, eventually earning his black belt by the end of 2018 from the hands of his longtime coach Mateus Bernardi.
Lesser known to those outside the Gaúcho region bubble, Arthur’s black belt debut performance turned a few heads his way, launching Detânico to a more mainstream audience. A high-level output the young athlete continued to display from then on, with much of the credit for this success being accredited to Arthur’s mental coach, Mr. Leonardo Chebar.
