Daniel Sathler Biography

Daniel Sathler was born on January 19, 2001, in the Bairro do Rocha neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but relocated with his family at the age of 2, to the Morro do Urubu – a slum in the Abolição district.

When Sathler was 7 years old, he returned to the Rocha burg. As his parents were working long hours and expressed concerns about the possibility of Daniel’s spare time being spent on the streets where crime was a daily occurrence, the decision was made for the young “Carioca” to join an extra-curricular activity. To tackle this issue, his father – a cage fighting and jiu-jitsu fan – decided to include him in BJJ classes.

It was in 2008 that Daniel Sathler joined Denis Machado’s academy, the Brazilian Fight in Clube Magnatas do Rocha. Machado was a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu and Luta Livre Esportiva who always incentivized his young students to compete and it didn’t take long for Sathler to join the squad at the local events.

Daniel went through all juvenile belts under the instruction of Denis Machado (grey, yellow, orange, and green), before joining GF Team’s headquarters when looking to further develop his career as a professional grappler, where he earned his blue and purple belts while developing into hot prospect status through his wins at the World, Pan-American, and European Championships.

Understanding that the core of the sport had shifted to the United States and that it would be best suited for his growth to be competing, year-round – in the North American circuit, Daniel decided to approach André Galvão‘s Atos Headquarters Academy, in San Diego, California, to request membership with the team’s pro squad. Both leaders of the team (André & Angelica Galvão) agreed to have Sathler on board, as such the young Brazilian moved to the Northern Hemisphere at the age of 18.

With Team Atos, Daniel Sathler continued evolving and winning the top tournaments in the sport, earning his brown and black belt with the team, the latter promotion taking place on June 21, 2022.
