Roiter Lima Biography

Roiter Lima was born on November 3, 1999, in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, but moved to nearby Pindoretama at the age of 4, where he spent his formative years.

Throughout his childhood, Lima aspired to be a football (soccer) player while playing futsal (indoor soccer) competitively for many years, up until his early-to-mid teens.

In 2012, Roiter’s older brother, Helter, started learning jiu-jitsu from their uncle – jiu-jitsu black belt, Rosier Lima. Seeing how much his brother was enjoying the mats, 13-year-old Roiter decided to join the classroom soon after. At first, both brothers trained recreationally, but in 2013, Helter started competing, and once again, dynamized by his brother’s success, Roiter became equally invested in the tournament circuit.

Competing became increasingly important for Roiter, the significance of the mats led 15-year-old Roiter – a blue belt at the time – to relocate to Fortaleza, where jiu-jitsu was booming, there joining the famous Gigueto gym (MG Team) while maintaining his connection with Rosier.

2 years into his full-time training, in Fortaleza, Lima was offered a spot on the Cassão Team, a Gracie Barra affiliate in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, led by Cássio Francis. A position strongly supported by his uncle, and longtime coach, Rosier Lima.

Guided by coach Francis, Lima’s jiu-jitsu career gained plenty of steam as he went on to conquer the Abu Dhabi World Pro Championship as a purple belt. The great success of his sporting endeavors allowed Roiter to be included in one of the 4 vacancies available in Gracie Barra’s Ambassadors program during 2020. A scholarship offered to the team’s top international talents, who are provided with full sponsorship in the United States, where the top events of the sport take place.

While staying in the US, Roiter was offered a coaching position at Gracie Barra Arizona, a gym owned by Flávio Almeida. In November 2020, Roiter Lima was promoted to black belt by Cássio Francis and Lucas Silva, the head instructors at the Cassão Team.
