Hygor Brito Biography

Hygor Brito was born on February 10, 1996 in Manaus, on the banks of the Negro River in northwestern Brazil, the capital of the vast state of Amazonas inside the Amazon Rainforest.

While growing up Hygor had friends who practiced jiu jitsu and it was by their influence that Brito joined the sport/martial art at the age of 13, under the tutelage of instructor Othon Sevalho – founder of the Academia Clube Sevalho team.

Brito climbed jiu jitsu’s teen belt system guided by Othon, though as Hygor reached the blue belt rank, the club closed down for an extended period. This was when the young teenager joined Master Nabil (Nabil Abdel Aziz), a former student of the legendary Omar Salum.

Competing in the colored belt divisions of Manaus local BJJ circuit, Hygor became recognized as one of the region’s most promising competitors. In trying to focus on making jiu jitsu his profession, in 2016 Hygor moved to São Paulo to train with Cicero Costha where his good friend Diego Oliveira (Pato) already lived.

The experience with Cicero Costha exposed Hygor to a higher level of training partners and to one of the toughest competitive tours in the sport (São Paulo). Soon Brito’s name went from a state level rising star to nationwide hot prospect, which ultimately led to Hygor Brito’s black belt promotion on December 12, 2017.
