Roberto Satoshi, also known as Roberto “Toshi”, is one of five successful grappling siblings: Mauricio Dai de Souza, Marcos Yoshio de Souza, and Cristiane Yukari de Souza, all children of the late Master Adilson de Souza. Roberto became a big name in Jiu Jitsu after his win at the World Championship in 2010 (brown belt), being considered after that tournament one of the hottest prospects in BJJ.

Roberto Satoshi Biography

Roberto Satoshi de Souza was born on the 19th of September, 1989 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Roberto started training martial arts as a child under his father’s tutelage, learning Judo at first and later Jiu Jitsu. Reaping the profits of being one of the youngest of a family fully dedicated to Jiu Jitsu, Roberto started making a dent in the BJJ junior divisions by winning several trophies, including the World Championship in both his weight category and the open weight, immediately standing out as one of the sports rising starts. Unfortunately, after 2006, the World Jiu Jitsu championship was taken away from Brazil and started being held in California, USA, as Satoshi could not get strong sponsorships to compete abroad he missed a couple of years, making his return in 2009 with a successful run for the world title.

As Mauricio (Roberto’s oldest brother) settled in Japan, opening an academy there, Satoshi decided to visit the country both to compete and to see his brother. The experience was so successful that Roberto decided to stay for good, at first living as he could, working in factories to survive, but shortly after he managed to break through and started making a living solely out of competing and teaching Jiu Jitsu.

On the 1st of May 2011, Roberto Satoshi received the well deserved black belt from the hands of his father, hours after the cerimony Master Adilson de Souza passed away on the hospital due to a prolonged illness.
