Ingridd Alves Biography

Ingridd Alves was born on January 29, 1995, in Teresina – the capital of the Brazilian state of Piauí. Being the daughter of a military man, Ingridd lived where her father was stationed, moving around the country while growing up.

While growing Alves played several different school sports at a competitive level, being particularly keen on futsal (a form of indoor soccer) and volleyball.

By the time she reached adulthood, Alves had fallen into the shortfalls of a sedentary lifestyle, a time when she reached over 100 kilograms (220 lbs). Although struggling with insecurities due to her physical appearance and with low self-esteem, Ingridd decided to join a jiu-jitsu school located inside a military club by the end of 2014.

From the very beginning of her jiu-jitsu tuition, Ingridd enjoyed the training, saying jokingly in an interview with BJJ Heroes from January 2021 that grappling had been a “love at first choke”. Within only a few months of practice, Alves lost 30 kilograms (66 pounds).

Her devotion for grappling early on led Alves down the path of competitive jiu-jitsu when she was in her early days as a white belt. Even though she was choked out of consciousness in her very first ever match, the experience did not detour her from returning to the tournament scene, quite the opposite. The ordeal made her return to the training room with even more determination.

Working with coach Edilson Albuquerque, from a small town (in jiu-jitsu terms), in a lesser-known gym, Ingridd Alves was able to become one of the most well-known athletes on the Brazilian circuit.

Coach Albuquerque’s gym was affiliated with different associations over the years, from the famous Northeastern Brazil team of SAS to the international NewSchool Brotherhood. Taking full advantage of the gym network associated with Albuquerque, Ingridd trained extensively in Fortaleza with coach Eduardo Cunha. During the early months of 2021, Ingridd moved to São Paulo, then joining the Guigo Jiu-Jitsu Academy.
