Guilherme Rocha Biography

Guilherme Rocha was born on September 21, 1998, in Recife, the capital of Brazil’s northeastern state of Pernambuco.

Being the son of a jiu-jitsu pioneer in the Pernambuco region, the highly regarded ‘Zé Radiola‘, it didn’t come as a surprise when Guilherme started grappling as a toddler, in fact, the first sport Rocha practiced was BJJ. Given that his father’s academy was located at the family’s home/property, young Guilherme would participate in class from when he started walking and onto adulthood. During his early childhood judo was also added to Rocha’s daily activities.

As a child Guilherme gave preference to his judo training, competing extensively in this sport with great success and relegating jiu-jitsu to the side, only training sporadically with his father. This predilection for judo would start fading out in 2007 after Radiola convinced Guilherme to enter his first BJJ Brazilian Nationals. Competing at such a large event, and winning his first major sporting title truly tilted the scales in jiu-jitsu’s favor and lit a fire in Rocha for competition.

As a 15-year-old Guilherme Rocha was already living the life of a professional BJJ athlete, spending his weeks’ training and competing. The hard work paid off and Rocha quickly became recognized as one of Brazil’s hottest prospects. After a long and prosperous career in the colored belt divisions of the sport, on February 2019, Guilherme Rocha was promoted to black belt by his father, and long-time trainer, Mr. José Olimpio – Zé Radiola.
