Mathias Luna Biography

Mathias Luna was born on February 21, 1995, together with his twin brother Matheus Luna, in Recife, the capital of Brazil’s northeastern state of Pernambuco, moving to Natal – state of Rio Grande do Norte at the age of 8.

Growing up both Mathias and Matheus were active kids, playing a variety of ball sports, from football (soccer) to handball, to volleyball and basketball throughout the school system. At the age of 16, however, influenced by their neighbor, who had started training jiu-jitsu at a local social project, Mathias joined jiu-jitsu, which consumed Luna.

At the local social project, Mathias met coaches Fábio Rodrigues and Júlio e Rodrigo Salustino, who taught there, but it didn’t take long before the Luna brothers started becoming more serious about their intentions in the sport, then joining the Barreto Brother’s Academy (Thiago and Bruno), one of the most successful gyms in the region.

Luna went from white to purple belt under Thiago and Bruno Barreto, but in 2017, accepted an offer from Ricardo Feliciano (Pantcho) – a member of the Checkmat affiliation to which the Barreto brothers were affiliated, to move to the United States, a country that provided the best tournament circuit in the world had where the Mathias and Matheus would have more opportunities to earn a living from this sport.

Mathias would earn his brown belt from Pantcho and in 2018 also join the academy of another famed Checkmat coach, Lucas Leite. It would be Leite and Feliciano who promoted Mathias and his brother, Matheus, to black belt on August 24, 2019.
