Leon Brito Biography

Leon Brito was born on August 26, 1993, in Juiz de Fora, a city located in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil.

During his childhood, Leon played football (soccer) competitively at a local club, an activity that lasted until October 2008 (15YO), when an injury pushed young Brito to the sidelines for over 1 year. By the time his injury improved, the young Mineiro had gained plenty of weight. While looking for a way to regain his previous form Leon decided to try jiu-jitsu for the first time.

Leon’s first instructor was Brazilian Top Team’s Eduardo Portilho, commonly known as Barney, who was a brown belt at the time. Brito trained under Portilho’s tuition up until he earned his blue belt, after which he joined BTT’s Juiz de Fora’s headquarters with coach Ricardo Marques. A gym that is well known for the lengthy list of high achievers.

Once he joined Marques’ workgroup, it didn’t take long for Leon to break through the ranks, conquering many important international titles on his way to black belt, the latter a rank Brito earned from coach Ricardo in 2018.

Although extremely successful in jiu-jitsu as an athlete early on, having conquered his first world title as a blue belt, Leon competed unsponsored up until he was a well-established black belt, with his first true sponsorship deal being signed midway through 2021 with the Vouk brand.
