Dimitrius Souza Biography

Dimitrius Souza was born on the 25th of March, 1989 on the east side of Sao Paulo in an area named Cohab. Souza heard about jiu jitsu through a friend who already practiced the sport/martial art. It was through an invitation made by this same friend that Dimitri had his first contact with jiu jitsu.

The affinity for grappling was instantaneous, and Dimitri immediately signed up for regular classes at the Nascidos para Vencer social project, a group designed in 1998 to help children and families in financial difficulties, occupying the kids with jiu jitsu and promoting the healthy and sporting lifestyle in an impoverished area.

Dimitri’s first coach at the Nascidos para Vencer project was Antônio Carlos Bergamo, known as “Toni”, the founder of the organization. As Toni would often travel to other projects he led outside Sao Paulo, the classes were also led by Everdan Olegario (AKA Mestre Dan) and Sergio Moraes, both products of the system developed by coach Bergamo, and both fundamental pieces in the development of Souza as an athlete.

As a blue belt, Dimitrius Souza started visiting Fabio Gurgel‘s academy. After he received his brown belt Souza also became a regular at Luciano Nucci’s gym, the famous “Casquinha”. With many important titles during his 2011 jiu jitsu campaign, including a win at the world championship in the brown belt division, Dimitrius Souza was rewarded with his black belt by Sergio Moraes on July that year.
