Igor Feliz Biography

Igor Feliz was born on January 16, 1999, in the Santos Metropolitan Area, located on the coast of the state of São Paulo, Brazil, growing up in Porto Primavera, SP.

Although Igor’s father, Thaisio, was an avid jiu-jitsu practitioner, Feliz did not start practicing the Gentle Art until his 9th birthday. At the time, his parents saw Igor gaining a few pounds and believed grappling would help deal with the pending issue, while also helping the young São Paulo native to develop other physical and mental traits.

In 2016, Thaisio Feliz was offered a position as a jiu-jitsu instructor in Vero Beach, Florida, USA. A position accepted by the Brazilian, who proceeded with the move, bringing his family with him to the United States, including Igor.

The excellent work done by Thaisio in the area led him to open his own academy, Future School Of Jiu-Jitsu, in 2018. A team also linked with R1NG (an alliance of different coached of similar lineages that encompassed a wide network of gyms).

The continuous growth of Igor as an athlete turned him into one of the main figures of both the Future School and R1Ng on the sport’s international circuit. His great form led to his black belt promotion on June 8, 2021, a rank awarded by his father and long-time coach, Thaisio Feliz.
