Ygor Rodrigues Biography
Ygor Rodrigues was born on January 26, 1998 in Campos dos Goytacazes, state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Being the youngest son of a highly revered jiu jitsu instructor, Master Márcio Rodrigues, it didn’t come as a surprise when 6-year-old Ygor started his journey in BJJ. This early start, however, proved to be a bumpy one as his father’s decision to add his Ygor to the classroom was met by some pushback from the youngster.
After some persuasion young Ygor adapted to the classroom and soon enough his talent started shining through. Being raised in a family of grapplers with father Márcio a renowned coach, mother Christiane a BJJ black belt and brother Yago – one of his generation’s toughest competitors, while also counting numerous high-level athletes training on the family’s mats on a daily basis, Ygor quickly made his mark on the tournament scene.
To attest his tremendous potential, by the time Rodrigues turned 15 he was already regarded as a professional athlete. This was also the time when Rodrigues started traveling internationally to attend the world’s top events.
After a stellar campaign in the colored belt divisions, particularly as a brown belt – on May 6, 2018, Ygor Rodrigues was promoted to black belt by his father while on the podium of the Brazilian National Championship. On that same day, brother Yago was also promoted to black belt.
