Gutemberg Pereira Biography

Gutemberg Pereira was born on May 16, 1993 in Salvador, the capital of Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia – growing up in a well known impoverished borough of that town called Jardim Cajazeiras.

Throughout his childhood Pereira always had plenty of sport related extracurricular activities. This important facet of his day-to-day life lied in the belief Gutemberg’s parents had that keeping their son occupied would keep him off the streets and away from gang related crime. Among his sports, prior to jiu jitsu, Pereira played and competed in football (soccer), swimming, karate, muai Thai and basketball.

As a teenager Gutemberg had a family problem which shook him to his core. He was advised to look for jiu jitsu to improve his self worth, finding at the time a local academy by the name of Fight Club (FC). At FC Pereira was under the instruction of coaches Marcio Bittencourt, Marcílio and Marcelo Villas Boas who induced in him the love for BJJ and competition.

As a blue belt Gutemberg travelled to Rio de Janeiro in order to compete at CBJJ’s Rio International Open. Being a massive fan of Rodolfo Vieira, Pereira went with the intention of asking Master Júlio César Pereira if he could be accepted in his competitors program at Grappling Fight Team (GFT), a request accepted by Pereira who strongly believed in the 18 year old’s potential.

In 2015 Pereira travelled to the United States of America to take part in one of Roberto Abreu‘s Miami based BJJ camps ahead of a competition. While in Florida, through Abraham Marte (a GFT partner), Gutemberg got an invitation to train at another team affiliate in Ohio. After a very positive experience at Kelly Hymore’s academy (GF Team Toledo), Gutemberg was invited to stay training in the US as a full time competitor, an offer accepted by the Brazilian.

After two years in the US, having medalled in some of the sport’s top tournaments Gutemberg Pereira was promoted to black belt by Master Júlio César Pereira.
