Victor Silvério Biography

Victor Silvério was born on the 3rd of July 1991 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Though he moved around in his youth, spending time in the USA and Europe, most of his childhood was spent in the Cidade Maravilhosa. Victor started training Jiu Jitsu when he was 15 years old, influenced by some of his school friends who already grappled.

Leandrinho Barroso of ‘Game Fight’ was Victor Silvero’ first coach, the team was an affiliate of the Gama Filho (UGF), so Victor would often go and train at the team’s head quarters, even as a white belt, where the illustrious Julio Cesar taught. It was Barroso who awarded Silvério his blue and purple belts.

After Gama Filho university cut tied with the Jiu Jitsu competition team, the academy had major internal changes and Game Fight was cut ties with the (now called) Grappling Fight Team. With these changes, Victor Silvério chose to remain close to Cesar and his new team, it was Julio who graded Victor with his brown and black belt (on December 2013). Silvério hit the ground running in 2014, competing in the major league of Jiu Jitsu, the adult black belt division, Silvério managed to achieve some noticeable wins over tough fighters at the Copa Podium and a double gold at Rio de Janeiro’s prime tournament, the Rio Open.

Victor moved to the United States of America in 2015, where he worked closely with AJ Sousa in the state of Florida. By June 2017 Silvério aligned himself with Romulo Barral, then joining Barral’s workgroup in Northridge, California.
