Fernando Monteiro Biography
Fernando Monteiro was born on the 19th of October, 1957 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He was always a sporty person, practicing sports such as swimming, rowing and Judo before entering Jiu Jitsu. He decided to start training BJJ because he had always been an aggressive person and he felt that in doing a sport such as Jiu Jitsu he could take a little of that aggressiveness out of him.
He joined the famed gym of Francisco Mansor in 1977 earning his black belt in Jiu Jitsu from that same master in December 2004 (almost 30 years later). He later joined Brasil 021 (a team with very strong roots in that same Kioto camp where he started).
