Hiago Gama is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under Alexandre (Gigi) Paiva, and a member of the Alliance academy for whom Hiago conquered numerous titles while competing in the rooster-weight (57,50 kg / 127.0 lbs) category of the sport. Regarded as one of the top prospects in jiu-jitsu since his IBJJF Grand Slam victory as a blue belt (2013), when he won the World, Pan American, Brasileiro, and European Open titles, Hiago Gama continued to cement that claim with world titles on every colored belt, being mentioned by BJJ Heroes as one of the ‘Most Likely to Succeed‘ roosters in BJJ (2017).

Hiago Gama Biography

Hiago Gama was born on May 13, 1992, in Vitória da Conquista, a city inside the Brazilian state of Bahia, where Gama grew up. Hiago’s first steps into the world of martial arts and combat sports were taken through judo, a sport he initiated at the age of 5 and where Gama remained up to purple belt.

In 2008 Hiago was invited by a friend (Daniel Ferraz) to visit his jiu jitsu academy. Gama thoroughly enjoyed the class and decided to sign a membership, this way giving a start to his BJJ career. Even though his family had strong ties to judo, particularly through his aunts Cátia and Cácia Gama (both former Brazilian national medallists in the sport), Hiago slowly grew disconnected with judo and started focussing more of his efforts on jiu jitsu.

Hiago Gama’s first jiu jitsu instructor was Gleison Oliveira, with whom he trained up to blue belt. In 2012 Alexandre Paiva, leader of the Alliance Leblon academy, started a project with the intent of finding some of the most talented athletes in the colored belts competitive scene and foster their careers, helping these athletes reach their full potential. Gama was one of the very first to sign on to this program, moving to Rio de Janeiro for that purpose that same year.

During his first year at Alliance Leblon, Hiago Gama conquered the IBJJF Grand Slam by winning Brazilian National, European Open, Pans, and World titles, proving the success of Paiva’s program.

Going through the purple and brown belt stages, Hiago showed continuous growth and the highest standard of jiu jitsu by winning world titles and ultimately being promoted to black belt in June 2017 – while still on the podium of the IBJJF World Championship, a tournament he had just won.
