Rafael Mansur Biography

Rafael Mansur was born on June 21, 1990 in Florianópolis, state of Santa Catarina – Brazil.

Jiu jitsu entered Rafael’s life at the age of 15, more precisely on February 2006, influenced by a friend from school who introduced Mansur to his first instructor, Alexandre Reis. Under Reis’ guidance Mansur progressed through the rank system, all the way to brown belt.

After a series of internal problems at Alexandre’s academy, Rafael made the hard decision of switching camps, then joining Pedro Mello’s team. He continued his sporting success and remained with Pedro for 1.5 years, until coach Mello moved to the United States.

After Mello moved from Santa Catarina, Rafael was met with a chance to follow his dream of being a professional athlete by joining Cicero Costha‘s jiu jitsu program. At the time Mansur had two team mates (Gustavo Batista and Rafael Babilônia) who had been scouted by the famous Projeto Social Lutando Pelo Bem (Fighting for Good Social Project) – also known as PSLPB, making his move to São Paulo a smoother process.

While training at PSLPB, where he stayed from December 2014 to September 2015, Mansur earned his black belt from Pedro Mello with whom he still shared a strong bond. His black belt promotion taking place on June 2015.

After the PSLPB academy split on September 2015, Rafael followed his teammates – particularly Leandro Lo who became Mansur’s head coach – out of the academy and helped establish the New School Brotherhood.
