Yuri Hendrex Biography

Yuri Hendrex was born on April 06, 1996, in Macapá, a city located on the northern channel of the Amazon River, in the Brazilian state of Amapá.

As a child, Yuri was committed to football (soccer), playing both recreationally and competitively. His “bad temper” on the pitch led him to jiu-jitsu, an activity he started in the hope that martial arts would slow Hendrex down.

Coach Mardem Brito “Tubarão” was Hendrex’s first instructor, tuition that started back in 2012 when Yuri was 14 years old. The young Brazilian felt immediately drawn to grappling, starting his competition career from the get-go. By the time he was a blue belt, Hendrex was already dedicating his full attention to the sport.

It was as a purple belt that Yuri met Cicero Costha when the famous PSLPB head instructor visited Macapá for a few workshops. With the CBJJE World Championship, held in São Paulo, coming up, coach Tubarão asked for two of his students – Yuri and Ayan Martins – to sleep at Cicero’s gym during the time of the tournament. A request accepted by Costha.

From this initial connection, it did not take long for Hendrex to become a part of the PSLPB workgroup, soon moving to São Paulo, being promoted to brown and black belt by coach Cicero Costha, the latter in a ceremony that took place on December 4, 2020.

Idiosyncrasies

When competing Hendrex’s black belt has an inscription: Ayan Martins. That is a homage to his former training partner and best friend, who past away in 2017. The two came to Cicero Costha’s academy together from Macapá as purple belts and shared the same dreams.
