Marcos Paulo Costa Biography

Marcos Paulo Costa was born on September 29, 1989 in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil moving on to Araruama when he was 11 years old.

Like most Brazilian children, Marcos started playing competitive sports through football (soccer), only finding about jiu jitsu at the age of 16 through a group of highschool buddies. Costa’s first steps in BJJ were taken at a local academy, under the guidance of a purple belt nicknamed ‘Russo’ (Russian).

Russo followed Costa’s development all the way to blue belt, a time when Marcos’ tuition was taken by the Russian’s coach – Alessandro ‘Bacalhau’ Vieira. This arrangement was short lived as Marcos Costa ended up switching again, this time settling at Juarez Soares gym, one of the most well respected instructors in the region and leader of the DDR academy ( initials that stand for Dedicação, Disciplina, Respeito [Dedication, Discipline and Respect]). Marcos stood by Soared throughout his coloured belt career all the way to black belt – a promotion that took place on February 8, 2014.

A few months after earning his black belt Marcos Paulo was offered a job working in Dubai – coaching jiu jitsu. He decided to move to the United Arab Emirates with his wife Leticia Vargas (also a BJJ black belt), where he established himself as both an instructor and a regular competitor.
