Maurício Oliveira Biography

Maurício Oliveira Neto was born on October 24, 1997 in Salvador, the capital of Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia. Growing up in an impoverished area (São Caetano) of Salvador, Maurício spent his days playing street soccer and didn’t see his life without this activity.

The always present street violence felt in his neighborhood helped Oliveira’s brother-in-law convince Maurício to try a jiu-jitsu class when he was 14 years old, under the pretext of learning self-defense. Coach Zé Carlos taught BJJ classes for free at a local association and it was he who initiated the young teenager in grappling.

Carlos was forced to abandon the project after a few months, leading Maurício to join Zé Carlos’ own instructor Master Sinho Baiano. He stayed with Master Sinho for over 1 year, and in the meantime befriended another well-known Salvador instructor, Mr. Grimaldo Oliveira a GF Team representative in the region.

Grimaldo saw tremendous potential in Maurício Oliveira and invited him to come and train at the GFT headquarters in Rio. Given that Maurício was just 16 years old, Master Oliveira helped convince the boy’s mother who allowed Neto to come and live his dream in the big city.

Maurício Oliveira arrived as a blue belt and spent the following 3 years living at GFT’s academy, in a room the students nicknamed “Cachanga” which was located above the mats (Cachanga usually translates to a place inhabited by people of lower social strata). There Maurício had the opportunity to live and breathe jiu-jitsu 24 hours per day, training under Júlio César.

In 2016 a good friend and teammate of Maurício – Gutemberg Pereira moved to Ohio in the United States. Gutemberg knew Oliveira from the days of Salvador when they had trained together, having also been a part of the same GFT flag also for a few years. The friendship between the two athletes kept very much alive and in 2017 Pereira invited Maurício to visit the United States to train in Ohio at the local GFTeam camp, an offer accepted by the young grappler. After this first contact Oliveira remained as a regular member and representative of the Ohio-based GFT.

In June 2018, after conquering his third IBJJF world title in a row, Maurício Oliveira Neto was promoted to black belt by his longtime instructor Júlio César Pereira. In 2020, however, after returning to Brazil, Oliveira joined the São Paulo based team, Dream Art.
