Yan Lucas Biography

Yan Lucas was born on May 23, 1995 in Fortaleza – capital of the Brazilian state of Ceará.

Being the son of a Saulo Ribeiro black belt – Herevaldo “Papa-Léguas” (P.L. is the Portuguese name for Looney Tunes’ Road Runner), Yan was introduced to jiu jitsu from very early on, though his first group class came at the age of 11. With a jiu jitsu base already outlined by his dad, Yan’s first structured classes were given by Pirillo Roriz, a friend and former training partner of Lucas’s father.

“Pica-Pau” soon made a name for himself in the sport, particularly in the state of Ceará, a location not often covered by jiu jitsu’s mainstream media. This lack of coverage allowed Lucas to arrive at the 2015 IBJJF World Jiu Jitsu Championship as an unknown brown belt competitor, taking the world by storm and winning the highly competitive featherweight division.

After his win at the World Championship in California, Yan Lucas remained in the country for a while longer to compete at the American Nationals. At the Nationals”Pica-Pau” shocked the world once again by winning his weight AND the open weight division, defeating the absolute world champion Mahamed Aly (who was a super-heavyweight) in the final.

Upon his victorious US tour, Yan Lucas returned to his home state, competing for a while longer as a brown belt until the 20th of February 2016, the time when he was promoted to black belt by his long time coach, Pirillo Roriz.
