Zayed Alkatheeri Biography

Zayed Alkatheeri was born on March 15, 2000, in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates located in the Persian Gulf.

Growing up, Zayed was not particularly sporty, but at the age of 16 (2017), he decided to give jiu-jitsu a try, given how popular the sport was in the UAE. To kickstart this new journey, Zayed joined the Al Jazeera Sportsclub under the instruction of coach Ribamar Santiago – himself a student of Fábio Gurgel of the Alliance Academy in São Paulo, Brazil.

Almost immediately drawn to the sport, Zayed became a regular at coach Santiago’s class from the start, and in 2018, one year after he started grappling, he opted to follow the sport professionally, dedicating all his time and effort to his development as a competitor.

Turning professional as a white belt is a type of dedication rarely seen in this sport, but Zayed was able to reap the benefits of his early commitment by climbing the ranks of jiu-jitsu at an astoundingly fast rate, winning many of the AJP’s top events on his way to the black belt promotion.

Zayed Alkatheeri was promoted to black belt on May 10, 2022, just 5 years after he first stepped on the mats, an incredibly fast climb through the ranks.
