Natan Chueng is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under Cícero Costha, who worked extensively with Douglas Rufino (Trator), Sandro Vieira and Paulo Maurício Strauch and represents the famous PSLPB team (Projeto Social Lutando Pelo Bem) in the sport’s international circuit. Natan’s name recognition gained traction while competing in the lower belt divisions of the sport, where he conquered European and Brazilian National titles on the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation’s (IBJJF) circuit. A native of jiu-jitsu’s most famous Brazilian ‘favela’, the Cantagalo slum, Natan is also the nephew of this area’s very first black belt, the accomplished Mauro Chueng.

Natan Chueng Biography

Natan Chueng was born on May 26, 1995, in the Cantagalo community, one of the most well-known slums in Rio de Janeiro.

As a child, Chueng practiced a number of sports, from swimming to surfing and even circus activities, all elements to which Natan credits much of his movement-based grappling style. Another activity Natan practiced and proved to be a talent in was futsal (indoor football), and although he dreamed of one day becoming a star in this sport, the opportunity to play for a major team never materialized.

Chueng was a troublemaker as a young child, so much so, that his school teacher called Natan’s parents to a meeting and warned them, their son would not see his 18th birthday if he were to follow the path he was on. For this reason, he was signed on to jiu-jitsu classes at the age of 6, at the famous Strauch Academy in Copacabana, with coach Paulo Maurício Strauch.

Natan trained there for a few years but was forced to abandon training during his pre-teens due to his low-income background, which forced him to find a job and help his family. At the age of 16, however, Chueng was able to return to jiu-jitsu thanks to the famous Cantagalo BJJ project, a training ground devised by Ricardo Vieira and Tererê during the 1990s. The coach there was Douglas Rufino, also known as Trator, who became a reference in the young Rio de Janeiro native’s development.

At the time the Cantagalo project was linked with Checkmat / FightZone Rio de Janeiro, and Chueng often trained there also, but with time coach Rufino opted to sever ties with Checkmat, with the project going on to compete for the Caio Terra Association.

Coach Rufino graded Natan Chueng up until his brown belt, but at that time, Chueng was offered a way into a more professional environment with Cícero Costha‘s team in São Paulo. It was Cicero who promoted Chueng to black belt on June 2, 2019.
