Vitoria Vieira Biography
Vitoria Vieira was born on June 10, 1999, in the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro, where she was raised.
Sports and physical activities became a big part of Vieira’s upbringing early on, through recreational endeavors such as swimming and skating, as well other, more serious ventures, such volleyball, judo, and even dancing, which Vitoria played competitively.
Although invested in dancing, Vitoria’s mother believed she was more of a fighter than a dancer and convinced Vieira to try a jiu-jitsu class in May 2014. As it turned out, Vieira’s mother was correct as her young daughter immediately felt a strong connection with the sport.
Vitoria started training jiu-jitsu at a GF Team affiliate, GFT Taquara, with instructor Flávio “Soldado”, her coach from white to black belt. Although always a student of coach Soldado, as she gained an interest in the competitive side of jiu-jitsu, Vieira started also attending Júlio César’s workgroup in Meier. César, the head coach of the GF Team professional squad.
After earning many important medals as a brown belt, in December 2021, coach Flávio Soldado promoted Vitoria Vieira to black belt. A promotion that was undertaken with the full approval of Júlio César.
