Vinicius Pereira Biography

Vinicius Pereira was born on May 2, 1995, in Belo Horizonte, the capital city of southeastern Brazil’s Minas Gerais state and one of the largest cities in South America.

In a country where the vast majority of children starts their sporting life in football (soccer), Vinicius’ parents chose a different path for their son, and by the time he was 4 years old, Pereira was signed on to jiu-jitsu classes with coach Marcos Antônio of the Scorpions academy.

Dos Santos Pereira remained with coach Marcos until his orange belt, then moving on to the Felix brothers gym, another local academy where he stayed until his purple belt. It was after earning the purple belt rank, that Vinicius started contemplating earning a living from jiu-jitsu and turning into a professional athlete. For that purpose, he then joined Cassão Team, a workgroup led by Cássio Francis, a former star of the local Gracie Barra academy.

Although relatively recent, the Cassão Team soon became one of the strongest academies in the country. A fact we alluded to in our 2018 article “Cassão Team, A Quiet Legion of Killers on the Rise“. It was under Francis’ umbrella that Vinicius became one of the best-known faces of the brown belt division, a status that earned him the rank of black belt by the end of 2018.
