Francisco Lo Biography

Francisco “Chico” Lo was born on November 7, 2000, in Manaus, the capital of the Brazilian state of Amazonas, where he lived through his childhood and formative years.

Initially drawn to football (soccer), Chico soon found out he lacked the skills to be competitive in that sport. Around the age of 11, Lo became a victim of physical abuse by other kids in his neighborhood and opted to join a jiu-jitsu club.

Karen Dias – the daughter of the legendary Cosmo Dias – was Lo’s first instructor, taking the young Manauara from white to blue belt, promoting him through the juvenile ranks. As a purple belt, Chico started becoming more focused on the competition scene, going on to train with a friend and local competitor.

As a purple belt, Francisco Lo became an adult and as soon as he hit the 18-year-old mark, he decided to move to São Paulo to become a full-time jiu-jitsu athlete. After talking to coach Cicero Costha, Chico was allowed into the well-known instructor’s fighter house on a grappling scholarship.

Under the guidance of Cicero Costha, Francisco Lo earned his brown and black belts, the latter in a ceremony that took place on May 16, 2022.
