Fernanda Cristo Biography

Fernanda Cristo was born on October 1, 2001, in Presidente Epitácio, a small municipality in the Brazilian state of São Paulo. Despite being born in Brazil, Fernanda’s mother was of Japanese descent and Cristo’s parents lived in Japan at the time of her birth, having merely opted to be in Brazil for the baby’s delivery with the intent of being closer to their family. When Fernanda was old enough to travel (5 months old), the couple and their daughter returned to the Asian country where they remained.

Cristo’s father, Rogério de Cristo, started training jiu-jitsu a few years prior to her birth with the mother joining the training room when Fernanda was one year old. The couple soon opened their own gym and as such, the young Brazilian was raised on the mats, watching her parents train and compete. This environment led Fernanda to join the kids’ program at the age of 4, going on to test her skills competitively for the first time at the age of 5.

Under Rogério de Cristo’s guidance, Fernanda developed into one of the top jiu-jitsu athletes in Japan, a momentum that carried through to the international level as a teenager, while competing in the juvenile and adult divisions of the IBJJF’s World, and Pan American Championship. The positive results built during her juvenile and colored belt career Cristo to her black belt promotion on July 24, 2021, at the age of 19.
