Bruno would cement this reputation during his pro-division debut at the IBJJF Houston No-Gi Open, with a double gold performance.

Bruno Matias Biography

Bruno Matias was born on June 11, 1999, in Arcoverde, a municipality in Pernambuco, Brazil, where Matias grew up.

Martial arts appeared in Bruno’s life as a way to combat his childhood hyperactivity. Matias’ mother believed combat sports would help her son release some of the extra energy while including solid hierarchy and structure in Bruno’s life, and she wasn’t wrong.

Bruno started playing capoeira as an 8-year-old, later adding judo to his extra-curricular activities, in 2008, as well as jiu-jitsu with coach Romualdo Lucas. Under the guidance of Romualdo (Nova União affiliate), Bruno Matias climbed through the ranks of BJJ up until purple belt.

At the age of 17, purple belt Matias applied for a scholarship at Felipe Pena‘s, Project Golden Team. To be accepted by the famous jiu-jitsu program, Bruno had to go through a demanding selection process where he competed against other athletes looking to conquer that same spot. After the trials, Bruno was accepted by the Belo Horizonte workgroup, then moving to the state of Minas Gerais to pursue a professional career in the sport.

Matias gained plenty of notoriety on the Brazilian circuit while under Felipe Pena’s guidance, earning his brown belt from the ADCC and IBJJF World Champion. Later, through Golden Team’s network, Matias had the opportunity to move to the United States, Texas, and join Gracie Barra’s Westchase’s program with coach Ulpiano Malachias.

After a lengthy career in the colored belt divisions, Bruno Matias was promoted to black belt by Ulpiano Malachias. A ceremony that took place on March 13, 2021.
