João Paulo Neto Biography

João Paulo Neto was born on May 4, 1995, in Porto Alegre – South of Brazil, though most of his infancy was spent in Canoas, a borough of Niterói, Rio de Janeiro.

It was in Canoas that João Paulo was initiated in martial arts, through judo at the age of 11. Highly dedicated to the Japanese art of throwing, training and competing regularly Neto climbed the ranks quickly and reached the level of brown belt by the age of 13.

Around that same age (13) João Neto was a victim of a street mugging in which he was physically assaulted. This altercation changed his training mindset as he looked for a more self defense oriented discipline, finding what he was looking in jiu jitsu.

A well known black belt in both jiu jitsu and judo, Moacir Mendes was Neto’s first instructor, one that stood by João through every belt. Given that João’s family was from Porto Alegre, he visited the popular city regularly and even as a white belt he took advantage of this situation by training regularly at Mário Reis‘ PA Alliance Academy.

João Paulo Neto’s realised jiu jitsu was his calling in life early on and as a blue belt became fully focussed on this sport/martial art, training and competing as his full time occupation while adding a job as an instructor at Mário Reis’ academy after being promoted to brown belt.

2017 was an incredible competitive year for João Paulo, who conquered medals in the top 3 International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation tournaments (Brazilian Nationals, Pan American and World Championships). These tremendous achievements earned Neto his black belt from the hands of coaches Moacir and Reis on July 2 that year.
