Matheus Spirandeli Biography

Matheus Spirandeli was born on September 28, 1993, in São Paulo – Brazil, where he lived until his 13th birthday, a time when he moved to the neighboring state of Minas Gerais.

Growing up Matheus was curious about martial arts, starting judo at the age of 6, a sport he practiced for 2 years. Like most children Spirandeli hopped sports for a while, taking karate classes for a year by the time he was 10.

As a 13-year-old Matheus started lifting weights at a gym in Minas Gerais. The gym’s jiu-jitsu coach (Wesley) became friends with Spirandeli, and found of his interest for martial arts, shortly after Wesley opened the doors of his mat to Matheus, who immediately took a shine to grappling again.

Coach Wesley was a full-time police officer, who (6 months into Matheus’ training) was transferred to an out of state precinct. Spirandelli was left without a coach for a few months, later finding Andrews Cleto, also known as “Nino”. Cleto was the first instructor to spot the potential of Matheus, pushing him to compete, though, after 1 year of coaching, struggling to monetize the gym, Nino closed down the academy.

Already hooked on jiu-jitsu, and seeing the limited resources available nearby, Matheus decided to return to his home state and try his luck in a bigger academy. Back in São Paulo Matheus signed on to Lótus Club, one of the historic teams in the region, where he met instructor Fernando Camocardi, also known as “Dove”. Fernando was an extremely competent coach, who awarded Spirandeli his blue and purple belts.

Seeing the talent Matheus had, coach Camocardi recommended Spirandeli to start training at the team’s headquarters, where the level of training partners was higher. At Lótus’ HQ Spirandeli met the illustrious Fábio Negão who took charge of Matheus’ training. One of the most talented competitors ever produced by Lótus, Fábio helped grow his brand new student’s game heaps and bounds, grading him with his brown belt in less than one year.

During his many travels competing across the country, and also abroad, Matheus made friends with Yago de Souza and Wellington Alemão, two of New School Brotherhood’s (NSB) biggest names – NSB being one of the most important teams in the world. Having a successful international career on his sights, Spirandeli saw NSB as the best way to progress, given that they had a more competitive team, and so, with the consent of coach Fabio Negão, Matheus switched to Yago and Wellington’s camp on February 2016.

Within 6 months of training with Ns Brotherhood Matheus Spirandeli convinced head coach Leandro Lo he was ready for the next step – the black belt, being promoted on July 1, 2016.
