Endres Barbosa Biography

Endres Barbosa was born on October 25, 1993, in João Pessoa, a coastal city near the mouth of the Paraíba River in eastern Brazil. Much like the standard Brazilian child of the 1990s, Endres grew up playing football (soccer). At the age of 9, however, he started entering horse riding events, a sport he played up until his mid-teens.

By his older brother’s influence (Esdras Mendes – who later became a successful jiu-jitsu black belt as well), Endres started watching mixed martial arts (MMA). Galvanized by the fights, the two siblings would often practice MMA moves at home, which progressively led Barbosa to quit equestrian sports to practice Thai boxing at the age of 15.

With a growing curiosity for jiu-jitsu, Endres’s brother, Esdras, decided to try a class, asking his younger brother to tag along. After the first few training sessions, on September 2010, Barbosa decided to quit muay Thai and joined BJJ on a daily schedule.

Marcello Viktor at Cascão Jiu-Jitsu was Endres and Esdras’s first instructor, and it was he who promoted Barbosa to blue belt. Already a regular competitor at the time, Endres was fully aware of his potential and understood he needed to seek a more tournament driven team. For this reason, he chose to switch to the worldly recognized Checkmat Team, joining its affiliate in Paraíba, a workgroup led by Tarcísio Jardim.

As a purple belt (already awarded by Tarcício) Endres earned his first IBJJF World title, this was also the year when Barbosa started coaching jiu-jitsu, a profession he kept throughout all belts from then on. 3 years later, on July 2017, after regularly earning medals in jiu-jitsu’s top tournaments, Endres Barbosa was awarded his black belt.
