Marcos Martins Jiu-Jitsu

Full Name: Marcos Vinicius de Oliveira Martins

Nickname: “Petcho” was a name that Marcos’ brothers gave him during childhood. Martins’ siblings were very dark skinned (in Portuguese “Preto”), though Marcos was of a much lighter tone. They would joke around saying Martins wasn’t a real “Preto”, but rather a mix, a “Petcho”. The name remained associated with the young man throughout his formative years and into adulthood.

Marcos Martins Biography

Marcos Martins was born on February 8, 1997, in São Bernardo do Campo, a Brazilian municipality in the state of São Paulo.

Marcos’ connection with sports grew from a non-profit, community based, social project that operated in Martins’ neighborhood. The objective of this enterprise was to occupy local kids while their parents were at work, and it offered a variety of activities from which the children could choose three (3) to focus on. Petcho first started learning how to skateboard and parkour, while also joining the theatre group.

At the age of 12 (2009), also through the aforementioned social project, Marcos Petcho discovered jiu-jitsu, starting his learning with coach Anderson de Oliveira. Martins soon became a more committed BJJ student and joined a CIA Paulista affiliated gym, where he learned from “Costela”, also known as Fernando Silva. It was Silva who awarded Marcos his blue belt.

As a blue belt, Marcos decided he wanted to pursue a career in jiu-jitsu. To pursue this objective Martins decided to follow a more competition focussed team, finding it at a Barbosa Jiu-Jitsu (B9) affiliate gym with coach Diego Martins. His commitment to this BJJ dream took an extra step forward when he turned 18 and decided to move to the state capital, São Paulo and joined B9 head coach Marco Barbosa.

Although taking every step towards one day becoming an IBJJF World Champion, Marcos Petcho’s goal was stopped short every year during his colored belt campaigns due to the United States – where the competition occurs, denying the young São Paulo native his visa. Having conquered every title available on a national stage, on December 8, 2018, Martins was promoted to black belt by coach Barbosa. A ceremony that took place with coach Diego Martins’ blessing.
