Gabriel Brod Biography

Gabriel Brod was born on July 26, 1995, in Pelotas, a town located in the Brazilian southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, where he grew up.

As his father was a big name in the local motocross circuit, Gabriel was introduced to motorcycles early in his life and by the time he was 10, he was already competing in this sport alongside his dad.

Although highly invested in motorcycles, Gabriel was an overweight kid and became more conscious about his figure during his early teens. With the idea of losing weight in mind, Brod decided to join a neighboring martial arts club at the age of 14, practicing Muay Thai for nearly 6 years and competing in 4 amateur superfights with an immaculate record.

Brod joined the army when he was 18 and was extremely involved in the corp, participating in 2 Peacefying Missions in Rio de Janeiro’s dangerous slums (Favela) and was on a peace mission in Haiti with the United Nations’ Blue Helmet squad, where he earned a medal.

During his time with the army, Gabriel contemplated a career in mixed martial arts and started training jiu-jitsu as a complement to his striking skills under the guidance of Fabiano Indio. As time progressed, young Brod became more interested in jiu-jitsu and eventually gave up on his MMA dream to pursue a career in BJJ.

In 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Felipe Pena (Preguiça) produced a Qualifier for his professional jiu-jitsu squad, a project named FP Golden Team, aimed at the development of the best undiscovered talents in the lower belt divisions of the sport in Brazil. Gabriel – a purple belt at the time – applied, and after 3 grueling days of tests, he was able to qualify for the team, being one of 10 athletes to do so.

Before being accepted by the FP Golden Team project, Gabriel Brod had never been a full-time athlete. He was in his 2nd year of Nutrition studies at the Federal University of Pelotas but decided to vacate his university spot and move to Belo Horizonte in Minas Gerais.

Brod arrived at the Golden Team as a purple belt, earning his brown and black belt from coach Felipe Pena, the latter in a promotion that took place on July 06, 2023.
