Guilherme Bacha Biography

Guilherme Bacha was born on September 14, 1992, in Vassouras, a small town deep in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro.

During his childhood, Bacha was an avid judoka, a sport he practiced up until the age of 12. Guilherme’s taste in sports changed dramatically during his teens as the young Brazilian removed his gi and swapped it for online computer games, dreaming of one day becoming a professional Esports player.

In 2012, 20-year-old Guilherme started training jiu-jitsu while studying Business & Management at the local university. Due to his studies, Bacha’s early grappling training was limited to two classes per week, moving on to 3-to-5 once he finished his degree, in 2015. The year when Guilherme started competing.

Quickly gaining a love for the competitive aspect of jiu-jitsu, in 2017 Bacha decided to move to the state’s capital, Rio de Janeiro, with the intent of becoming a professional grappler. To help him fulfill his dream, Guilherme opted to join the Fightzone gym in Copacabana, the headquarters of Checkmat in Brazil, a gym led by coach Ricardo Vieira.

Late in 2017, Guilherme met Ricardo Vieira’s brother, Leonardo Vieira, at the Gracie Pro event in Rio de Janeiro. Bacha won double gold in the purple belt division of the tournament and greatly impressed Leo. At the time Leonardo was scouting talent for the “Rising Stars”, a scholarship program developed with the Checkmat Academy in California, USA. A few months after they met, Bacha received an invitation to move to the United States and become part of Rising Stars, an offer accepted by the young athlete.

Coached by Ricardo Vieira and Leonardo Vieira, Guilherme climbed through the ranks of the sport, earning his black belt on December 13, 2021.
