Vinícius Martins, also known as “Chambourcy” is a jiu-jitsu black belt under Mario Reis and a headlining figure in his generation’s professional circuit as a medium-heavyweight, where he represents one of the most fruitful grappling hubs in the world, Alliance Porto Alegre (Brazil). Martins first made waves in the sport through his numerous medals in the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) league.

Vinícius Martins Jiu-Jitsu

Full Name: Vinícius do Canto Martins

Nickname: Martins is often referenced by his peers as Chambourcy, a label that dates back to his early days in the sport of jiu-jitsu, when he was the only kid in the training room. “Chamburci” is the name of the yogurt brand he ate before every class. As the brand is usually associated with young children, that became associated with Martins in jest.

Vinícius Martins Biography

Vinícius Martins was born on September 21, 1996, in Porto Alegre the capital of the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, where he grew up.

Like many Brazilian children, Martins’ first contact with competitive sports was through football (soccer), playing for his school and local teams as a child.

In 2009, Vinícius’ older brother joined a jiu-jitsu gym led by coach Rodrigo “Sem” Claus. Being very close to his brother, it didn’t take more than one month until Martins was asking his parents to follow his lead, which they agreed to.

Seeing the benefits jiu-jitsu had in terms of self-defense and how strong it made him feel, he quickly drifted away from soccer, leading him to abandon this sport at the age of 12 to focus all his extra-curricular time on grappling under the guidance of coach Claus and Iuri Cilenti.

Although guided through his junior belts by Rodrigo “Sem” (at first) and (later by) Iuri Cilenti, his workgroup was supervised by head instructor Mario Reis from the get-go. As such, once Martins took a more serious approach to his training and competitive schedule, his tuition was taken over by Reis (around the time of his green belt rank).

Although he opted to go full-time with his training shortly after being promoted to purple belt, a severe knee injury took him out of the game for nearly 2 years. After this ordeal, Martins returned to competition in 2017, but by that time he split his training equally with his academic studies at a local university. He would return to the big IBJJF events in 2019, and do so successfully.

After 3 years of consistent results in the colored belt divisions, on July 2022, Vinícius Martins was promoted to the black belt rank by coach Mario Reis.
