Guybson Sá Biography
Guybson Sá was born on July 20, 1988, in Fortaleza, the state capital of Ceará, located in Northeastern Brazil, where he lived up until his 21st birthday (2009).
Being the son of a true jiu-jitsu pioneer in the region, Master Francisco Sá, it didn’t come as a surprise when Guybson started learning jiu-jitsu at the tender age of 4. His training would take a step forward in intensity as an 11-year-old, when he moved in with his older brother ‘Sazinho’, one of Ceará’s most proficient instructors, who produced numerous champions from his well known Santos Dumont academy.
Although training regularly from when he was a toddler, Guybson only started competing during his mid-teens (2004), quickly establishing himself as one of the top prospects in the Ceará region, with sequential state titles in the lower belts of BJJ.
With a rampant career in the lower belt divisions from the year of 2004, on July 27, 2009 – after back-to-back wins in the CBJJE World Championship and IBJJF Rio International Open, Guybson Sá was awarded his black belt in a ceremony led by his father, red belt Francisco Sá and older brother ‘Sazinho’.
