Sebastian Serpa Biography

Sebastian Serpa was born on February 03, 2001, in Miami, Florida, where he was raised.

Growing up, Sebastian’s father was a big fan of martial arts and combat sports, being particularly uncompromising in his belief that everyone should know how to defend himself, credence he applied to his son. Following that premise, Sebastian started visiting a local boxing gym with his dad during his childhood.

After a few tries at the Sweet Science, it was clear that boxing was not something Serpa wanted to pursue, therefore a search for a new martial art began. Right around this time, Sebastian found a leaflet for a nearby jiu-jitsu school and was intrigued about grappling. That gym was Carlson Gracie Miami and Sebastian was 8 years old when he joined.

Michel Pereira, also known as “Buiu” was Sebastian’s first instructor and the person who led the young Miami native from white to brown belt.

Early in 2019, however, then purple belt Sebastian Serpa was told of a tough open mat session led by the Mahecha Brothers, Brian, and Kevin, in their garage every Sunday. A training session that was open to athletes of various teams and backgrounds. Intrigued by the training, Sebastian started attending and was immediately impressed with the level of grappling in the room, particularly with the skill level of the Mahecha’s.

With time, Sebastian started training more and more with Brian and Kevin, to the point that the Miami-based duo took over Serpa’s training, promoting him to black belt midway through December 2021, after Sebastian conquered his first world title.
