Johnatha Alves Biography

Johnatha Alves was born on January 12, 1999, in São Paulo, Brazil, where he first started training at the age of 9. Coach Caio Izidro was Johnatha’s first instructor, tuition later handed to Rodrigo “Sama” and Rogerio “Alemão” who awarded Alves his blue belt.

During his mid-teens, Alves applied for the Believe & Achieve grappling scholarship, a fund developed by the Mendes Brothers, Guilherme, and Rafael, in Costa Mesa, California. This grappling program was designed with the intent of helping the sport’s rising talent by granting them full room and board, the best training assistance available in the sport, as well as tournament registration and travel fee coverage. Alves proved to be the perfect candidate, joining the Mendes team in 2016, as a juvenile blue belt, at their performance center in Costa Mesa, California – Art of Jiu-Jitsu.

As soon as Johnatha joined the Believe & Achieve workgroup at AOJ, he started representing the Atos team on the international circuit, quickly proving why he had been picked for the B&A project by winning double gold medals at the 2016 IBJJF Europeans, Pans and Worlds that year.

Under the Mendes umbrella, Johnatha’s path of success carried across all colored belts, ultimately leading to his black belt promotion in a ceremony that took place on June 01, 2019. We use the term “ceremony” lightly as his belt award was an unusual event in itself: Alves was thrown his black belt by longtime coach Guilherme Mendes from the stands, while still on the mat, celebrating his win at the brown belt final of the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship.
