Lucas Silva “Lukete” Biography

Lucas Silva was born on April 11, 1996, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, where he spent the majority of his life.

Growing up Lukete played a variety of sports, including little league soccer and other school activities, with weight lifting entering Silva’s life during his early teens. It was at his weights gym that Lucas and his brother grew interested in martial arts, by watching the taekwondo class that was taught at their club.

Silva was a TKD practitioner for a few years in an academy, where jiu-jitsu was also taught. In 2013 Lucas became good friends with two school mates who were also in the BJJ class. This friendship led Lukete down the grappling path, his first-class taking place when he was 17 years old.

Marcelo Lourenço was Silva’s introduction to jiu-jitsu, the man in charge of the new students at the Cássio Francis class. After his initial interaction with the mats, Lucas’ tuition was delivered in the capable hands of Francis, also known as Cassão. One of the most respected and prolific coaches in the state.

Lucas’ love for grappling had him training full time from the early stages of his career, as a white belt. His dedication was shown on the mats with medals at the highest level of the sport, in the colored belt divisions. These impressive results later led to Lucas Silva’s promotion to black belt, on December 19, 2018. A grading ceremony led by Cássio Francis, the instructor who promoted Lukete in all BJJ ranks.
