Vinicius Liberati Biography

Vinicius Liberati was born on March 06, 1998, in Bariri, a municipality in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, where he grew up.

The first sport played by Liberati, competitively, was football (soccer) which he pursued from the age of 8 until 15. After he quit playing, Vinicius gained some weight and it was this that led him to a jiu-jitsu gym, in pursuit of getting back into shape.

Vinicius’ first instructor was Rafael Ultramare in Liberati’s hometown. Rafael and his brother, Rodrigo Ultramare graded Liberati from white to purple belt, up until the time when the young athlete met the universally acclaimed instructor Cicero Costha at a grappling tournament.

When Vinicius first met Costha, he was already mostly training jiu-jitsu under a full-time schedule and well aware of Cicero’s prowess as a coach as well as the success of his champions’ factory in the state’s capital. As such the young athlete asked Master Costha if he could visit his team headquarters in the future, a request that was accepted by the Brazilian master.

Once Liberati visited the Cicero Costha academy he knew this was the future he wanted for himself. He applied for Costha’s jiu-jitsu scholarship program and (once accepted, on January 2017), moved to São Paulo.

In 2019, while visiting Europe for a string of tournaments, Vinicius suffered an injury and discovered he has two herniated disks. The injury forced Liberati out of the practice room for a year and nearly forced him out of the sport altogether, but he managed to recover and re-enter the competition circuit by 2021.

Vinicius Liberati earned his black belt on May 14, 2022, on the podium steps of the Brazilian Nationals.

On May 2023, after over 6 years under Costha’s banner, Liberati announced his move to a new professional jiu-jitsu squad, Fratres.
