Lucas Alves Biography

Lucas Alves was born on July 23, 1993, in São Paulo – Brazil, where he grew up and where he was first introduced to sports. Starting from a young age, Lucas’ sporting career began with football (soccer) and stretched up until his 15th birthday. In the meantime, Alves dipped his toes in the martial arts world through capoeira, which he practiced during his pre-teens.

In 2007, at the age of 14, Lucas started training jiu-jitsu, influenced by his father, who joined class on the same day as Alves. Both father and son had been fans of mixed martial arts (MMA) for some time and favored the skillset shown by BJJ stylists, which propelled them to sign on to David de Souza’s class – a local black belt under Luiz Guilherme of the Guigo JJ Academy.

De Souza awarded Alves his green belt, but by the end of 2008, Lucas switched camps and started training with Luciano Nucci (also known as “Mestre Casquinha”), one of the Alliance Association’s top coaches. It was under Casquinha’s guidance that Lucas became a professional athlete, a career choice he made as a purple belt.

As time progressed Lucas Alves started sharing his training between Casquinha’s gym and the team’s headquarters with Fábio Gurgel and Michael Langhi. It was this trio who promoted Lucas to black belt, in July 2019.
