Vitor Toledo Biography

Vitor Toledo was born in Sao Jose dos Campos in Vale da Paraíba, Sao Paulo – Brazil. Vitor started training jiu jitsu influenced by his cousin Eduardo Toledo (who is also a very well accomplished jiu jitsu black belt). Vitor trained for most of his life with Erivaldo Junior from the Liga Jiu Jitsu academy, where he met Claudio Calasans & David Lemes who were training partners there.

After receiving his black belt from Erivaldo Junior (in late 2008), Claudio Calasans parted from the Equipe Liga Jiu Jitsu and started the Calasans Camargo BJJ Team. Shortly after Vitor Toledo and his cousin Eduardo followed Calasans, and so did David Lemes. Vitor also took advantage of the proximity between Calasans and the Atos team camp to train there in preparation for major events.
