Helton José Junior Biography

Helton José Junior was born on August 27, 1991 in Manacapuru – a municipality located in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, inside the Amazon Jungle.

Helton began his jiu jitsu career in his home town, training at Nilton Nascimento’s academy. A small non profit gym, which relied on school grades and community action as currency for its students. Junior was 16 years old when he started there, with his tuition laying on the shoulders of coaches such as Valdir António and Daniel Cristóvão.

Grappling became a very big part of Helton’s life from early on, and by the time he reached his blue belt Junior decided to leave his home town to try his luck in the state capital Manaus. There he joined the famous ASLE academy, ran by Henrique Machado, where he spent 2 years training and living at Machado’s gym.

After his time at ASLE, Helton continued his search for the best available training, moving to Rio de Janeiro to pursue his dream. He stayed there for 6 months, training at Game Fight with the famous Vinicius Amaral.

During his time in Rio Helton competed regularly in the neighbouring states. It is common practice for lower income competitors on the road, to solicit lodging to academies in the towns they will compete at, this was the case of Helton who requested to stay at Cícero Costha‘s Projeto Social Lutando Pelo Bem gym (PSLPB) through a friend who was already training with the team. The level of training and the hospitality led Helton to extend his stay until after the tournament and later join the São Paulo based team.

Helton arrived at Cícero Costha as a blue belt and earned all other belts from the leader of PSLPB. Including his black belt, earned on June 15, 2016.

After two years of competing at the highest level, on June 2018 Helton decided to switch teams, then joining the reigning IBJJF World Champion academy Atos Jiu Jitsu. A workgroup led by André Galvão.
