Augusto Ferrari Biography
Augusto Ferrari was born on the 10th of August, 1982 in Guarulhos, Brazil. He started practicing BJJ in 1997 at the Lotus Club, a club led by Moises Murad, a historic figure for São Paulo’s jiu-jitsu scene, particularly in the backstages of the sport, as a promoter.
Ferrari later switched to a different team, Barbosa Jiu Jitsu, commonly known as B9. According to an interview given to Fight TV in 2007, the reason for Augusto’s swap was due to the turmoil and instability suffered inside the Lotus workgroup.
As a purple belt (2000), Ferrari started gaining notoriety in competitions, clashing against some of the best grapplers in the state. This was also a defining year in Ferrari’s career, as he almost succumbed to his family’s pressure to abandon the sport, due to there being no real career in the sport at the time.
Ferrari also wandered through Europe, teaching seminars and promoting BJJ in the old continent, a time in which Augusto helped organize and promote events such as the Amsterdam BJJ Open, a tradition he carried out upon his return to Brazil.
