Fellipe Andrew Biography

Fellipe Andrew was born on October 24, 1994 in Caruaru – a Brazilian municipality in the state of Pernambuco (North-East).

Sports had a heavy influence in Andrew’s upbringing but the interest in martial arts only emerged during his mid teens, a time when Fellipe added the practice of kung fu to his daily activities. Not long after – more specifically on April 2011, Fellipe Andrew was convinced by his friends to give Brazilian jiu jitsu a try, a martial art/sport he fell in love with from the get-go.

Adriano Estanislau was Fellipe Andrew’s very first instructor, with the two maintaining a close relationship from white to black belt. Coach Estanislau’s academy was at the time affiliated with the Checkmat team and, as a result regularly invited another well known member of the team to his gym: The illustrious trainer Rodrigo Cavaca.

Cavaca was one of the most innovative coaches in the game, particularly during the 2010 era and the man behind great athletes such as Marcus Almeida, Gabriel Marangoni, Michelle Nicolini. He would leave the Checkmat team to form Zenith JJ in 2013, but the bond with coach Adriano and Fellipe Andrew remained.

As a purple belt Fellipe decided he was ready to focus 100% on his jiu jitsu career and moved to Santos, miles away from his family, to join Cavaca’s São Paulo state headquarters. Fellipe Andrew’s career took on like wildfire from their on while competing in the Brazilian national and international circuits. This was even more evident after his 2017 performance at jiu jitsu’s professional Copa Podio Grand Prix where Andrew was matched against some of the top black belts in the world, reaching a honorable 2nd place.

His many deeds on the mats led to his promotion to black belt on December 2017. A ceremony presided by Rodrigo Cavaca and Adriano Estanislau.
