Fellipe Trovo Biography
Fellipe Trovo was born on February 9, 1995 in Ribeirão Preto – a municipality located in the northeastern region of São Paulo state, Brazil where he grew up.
Throughout his childhood and preadolescence Fellipe’s life was embedded in more traditional sporting activities such as football (soccer) and swimming, however he had never heard of jiu jitsu. In his mid teens Trovo heard of a BJJ academy located in his neighborhood and decided to give it a try, enjoying the martial art from his very first class.
André Ushirobira‘s gym was where Fellipe started, which by coincidence was organizing it’s yearly internal tournament on the week that he joined. Being a natural born competitor Trovo signed on to the competition, and although he only had one week to prepare, he ended up winning his belt/weight class – an achievement that further galvanized Trovo’s interest in grappling.
From the very start Fellipe’s focus in developing his jiu jitsu skills was unrivaled at the gym, training regularly 5 to 6 hours per day. His hard work always well supported by his instructor, coach Ushirobira who was tireless in providing support to the young athlete.
Trovo climbed the ranks of jiu jitsu while earning numerous medals at a state, national and international level. The work led him to his black belt, earned on December 2017 after 3 hard fought years in the brown belt division.
After receiving his black belt Fellipe Trovo felt that in order to be successful in the sport’s toughest division, he needed to exceed his limits. Something that was very hard to achieve if training at a small gym such as Andre Ushirobira’s academy. The young black belt was a great fan of Rômulo Barral, both his game as an athlete and his work as a coach at Gracie Barra. Believing his gym would be the perfect environment to push him towards his goals, Trovo decided to swap teams in 2018.
