Enderson Dias Biography

Enderson Dias was born on September 03, 1998, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with his twin sister, Larissa, growing up in the Engenho Novo area located in the northern territory of Rio.

Influenced by his father – who was a Thai boxing coach – Enderson joined the local Muay Thai school at the age of 15. His love for martial arts drove him to jiu-jitsu two years later, a decision heavily influenced by one of his school friends who already practiced the gentle art at the time.

Enderson’s first instructor was none other than Vinicius Marinho, a well-known athlete in the region and one of the top GF Team representatives at the time. Soon after Dias started, his sister, Larissa, also joined the workgroup.

As a white belt, Enderson started seeing solid results on the competition scene, which included a silver medal in the Brazilian Nationals’ novice division in 2016. Galvanized by his performances, Dias became obsessed with training, running his schedule on a full-time basis from very early in his career.

The fruits of his labor saw a quick climb through the ranks of the sport, while under the guidance of coach Marinho. Dias would also work with other instructors once Vinicius left Brazil to live abroad, being particularly close to coach Melqui Galvão in Manaus. Ederson’s hard work led to his black belt promotion in January 2022 from the hands of Vinicius Marinho, after an eventful 2021 brown belt campaign, where he earned silver medals at the World and Pan Championships.
