Luiza Monteiro Fight List
Luiza Monteiro was born in the historic city of Salvador-Bahia in Brazil, and then moved to Niteroi in the state of Rio de Janeiro when she was a toddler. Her first glimpse into martial arts came at the age of 12 when she began training Muay Thai. When she was around 13/14 years old, a friend from school invited her to try her first class at a Jiu Jitsu academy. Immediately Luiza felt a connection to grappling and joined the Equipe Luiz Paulo team, taught by Junior Duarte. Luiza would receive her blue belt from Duarte.
Early into her training, Luiza took instruction from many different coaches within the Brasa + Checkmat team. She received her purple belt from Fabrico Bicudo Medeiros, her brown belt from Lucas Leite and Leo Vieira, and then received her black belt from Rodriga Cavaca in 2010 after performing well at a series of high level tournaments at brown belt such medalling at the Pan American and World Championships.
In 2011 Luiza joined the PSLPB team under Cicero Costha. This was a point in her career where she medalled at some of the most important tournaments in the sport. In late 2014, Luiza was invited to become a part of the coaches roster at the Unity BJJ academy in New York City after befriending some competitors who trained there. She stayed in New York City for four months but returned to Sao Paulo to continue her training with Cicero to get ready for the IBJJF tournament. This decision and training paid off shortly after with 2 important back to back wins, first at the Brasileiro Nationals, and then later at the 20th World Championship. In January of 2018, Luiza moved to San Diego, California to join the Atos Headquarters Academy and train under Andre Gavlao.
