Murilo Santana’s Biography

Murilo Santana was born on April 13, 1983, in São Paulo state, Brazil, where he grew up.

It was also in São Paulo that Murilo became a jiu-jitsu student under the tutelage of the Yamasaki brothers, particularly Mario Yamasaki – who would later move to the United States and become a famous Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), referee.

Given the close relationship between Yamasaki and Marcos Barbosa, when Mario left to the USA, Murilo – then already a black belt, started training and representing Marcos Barbosa. It was under the tutelage of Barbosa that Murilo had his most positive years as a competitor.

In 2015 Murilo moved to the United States, more specifically New York, where he helped kickstart a new team named Unity BJJ in Manhattan. The team quickly became one of the top talent-producing facilities in the sport.
