Leonardo Saggioro Biography

Leonardo Saggioro was born on March 7, 1989, in Juiz de Fora, a city in the southeastern Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, approximately 40 kilometers from the state border with Rio de Janeiro.

Minas Gerais has a short but prosperous history in jiu-jitsu, having in Ricardo Marques one of the states the most revered coaches. It was under the guidance of Marques that Leo Saggioro began his jiu-jitsu career, at the age of 13.

Saggioro started competing early and making a name for himself in his own and the neighboring state of Rio de Janeiro. His reputation rose up to international proportions shortly after his 18th birthday when he conquered his first IBJJF World title as a purple belt.

Continuing a prosperous campaign in the brown belt division, Cascão finally earned his black belt in the second semester of 2010, shortly after another positive performance at the ‘Worlds’ from the hands of his longtime instructor Ricardo Marques. His impact in this new division was felt almost immediately with a silver medal at the Brazilian nationals (CBJJ Brasileiro).

In 2015 Leonardo Saggioro was invited to Canada where he was offered a full time coaching position at a Brazilian Top Team affiliate school. An offer accepted by the young athlete.
