Rider Zuchi is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under Augusto Ferrari, who worked extensively with a number of other illustrious grappling coaches, including Leandro Lo, Fábio Negão, Diogo Nascimento and more, while representing the Ns Brotherhood as well as the Lotus Club teams. Rider’s reputation as one of the top athletes of his generation was boosted while competing in the brown belt division (2019) of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) circuit, where he conquered Brazilian National titles in both Gi and No-Gi. He later cemented that reputation with his standout black belt debut performance at the Copa Podio Grand Prix.

Rider Zuchi Biography

Rider Zuchi was born on May 25, 1996, in Santana, a small town in the northern region of the Brazilian state of São Paulo, where he grew up.

During his childhood Zuchi played in a few school-related activities, being particularly adept at football (soccer), but it wasn’t until he was 15 years old that he would truly embrace the sporting lifestyle, through jiu-jitsu.

Back in 2011, Rider’s father was invited to participate in a jiu-jitsu class by one of his friends. The patriarch decided to take his enthusiastic teenage son along with him. Both fell in love with the sport/martial art immediately, becoming training partners from then on.

Rider’s first instructor was Giannini Carlos of a Lotus Club Academy affiliate in Santana, who promoted Zuchi up until his blue belt. After his grading, given that the young athlete already wanted to pursue a sporting career in BJJ, Rider started going to Lotus’ team headquarters to get his instruction from the team leader Fábio Negão.

Coach Fábio was a big influence on the young São Paulo native throughout his career. As a purple belt, however, Rider hit a slump in his evolution, which translated into his competitive record. Unsatisfied with the way his career was progressing, Zuchi decided to start training at Leandro Lo‘s gym – New School Brotherhood, one of the most successful grappling programs in the state. It was Lo who promoted Rider Zuchi to brown belt.

Once Augusto Ferrari took over the Ns Brotherhood classroom from Leandro Lo, Rider became a student of the well-known instructor. It was on November 26, 2019, that Zuchi was promoted to black belt by Diogo Nascimento, who tied the belt around Rider’s waist at the behest of Ferrari.
