Italo Lins Biography
Italo Lins was born on the 21st of October, 1988 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Though he dwelled with “Capoeira” (another Brazilian martial art) for a few years, it was in jiu-jitsu that Italo Lins found his calling. He started training BJJ after an invitation from a few friends who already practiced the sport, he was 12 when he had his first class with master Carlos Santana, a coach who was also responsible for the introduction of multiple-time world champion Bruno Malfacine to Jiu-Jitsu.
Carlos Santana’s gym was an affiliate of the Grappling Fight Team and under the teachings of Santana, Italo went through the ranks from white to brown belt. As he reached the brown level, Italo Lins decided to switch to the main GFT (Grappling Fight Team) camp where he met Master Julio Cesar Pereira, becoming one of the main competitors at the team’s roster. It was Julio Cesar that awarded Italo Lins his black belt in 2010.
