Isaque Bahiense Biography

Isaque Bahiense was born on December 10, 1995, in Bangu – a neighborhood on the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

As a child Isaque met Fábio Andrade on the streets of his community. On several occasions, the (now famous) jiu-jitsu instructor invited Bahiense to try one of his classes but as the youngster could not afford the gear, he repeatedly turned down the offer. That was until Andrade gifted Bahiense with his very first kimono when he was around 10 years old.

Under professor Fábio’s guidance, Isaque quickly became one of the sport’s hottest prospects, winning junior world titles with and without the gi (3x), as well as a juvenile Brazilian national title, campaigns that had continuous success as a purple belt.

In 2014 Isaque moved to São Paulo (SP) for a month, to be close to his girlfriend and compete in a few international tournaments that were taking place in the famous Brazilian city. While in SP Bahiense kept in shape by training at the Alliance Academy Headquarters with Fábio Gurgel and Michael Langhi. After Isaque returned to Bangu’s Nova União, the relationship between Alliance’s leaders and Bahiense remained. So much that soon the young prodigy decided to move to São Paulo in order to continue his evolution alongside one of the strongest jiu-jitsu teams in the world – a decision fully supported by his mentor Andrade.

The change to Alliance gave an extra boost to Isaque’s career, who went on to earn his brown and black belts from the illustrious Gurgel and Langhi. The black belt arriving in December 2016.
