Igor Schneider, commonly known as “Tigrão” is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under Cicero Costha and a representative of the New School Brotherhood academy in the sport’s international circuit. Regarded as a hot prospect since he was a juvenile blue belt, Schneider cemented that claim by earning important medals across all belt levels, including a world title and numerous Brazilian National gold medals.

Igor Schneider Jiu-Jitsu

Full Name: Igor Gregório Schneider

Nickname: “Tigrão” which means big tiger in Portuguese. The nickname started with his first jiu-jitsu instructor, Lino Cotti. Cotti’s gym was a few blocks from Igor’s home, as such 10-year-old Schneider would often borrow his mother’s keys and walk by himself to the gym. One day Igor forgot his key at the gym, which had a miniature tiger as a keyring. Coach Lino Cotti found the tiger amusing and started calling Igor “little tiger”. As Schneider grew, the name changed to big tiger.

Igor Schneider Biography

Igor Schneider was born on the 1st of February, 1994 in São Paulo – Brazil, growing up in the municipality of Osasco, also in SP.

It was in Osasco that Igor stepped on a jiu-jitsu mat for the first time, at the age of 10, encouraged by his parents as a way to lose weight. Schneider’s first coach was Lino Cotti, also known as “Palito”, a student of Charles Faria – from the Equipe Godoi academy (later became G13).

Igor alternated his training between coach Palito and coach Faria up until his blue belt, then changing definitely to instructor Faria throughout his blue and purple belt campaigns.

By the end of 2012, Tigrão was already being pointed by the local media as one of the rising stars of the sport, after eye-opening performances at the Brazilian nationals and São Paulo Open. Believing in his talent, Igor decided to switch to a team that was more driven towards competition, finding the perfect environment at Cicero Costha‘s PSLPB academy.

Schneider’s talent truly came alight when training at PSLPB, earning both his brown and his black belt from the famed Cicero Costha – the latter awarded in June 2015.

In September 2015 internal divergences between head coach Costha and the team’s top competitor, Leandro Lo led the team to split, with many of the top competitors choosing Lo’s side. The group, which included Igor Schneider, founded a new academy later that year named New School Brotherhood.
