Nicolas Gregoriades: Record, Net Worth, Weight, Age & More!


Who is Nicolas Gregoriades?

Nicolas Gregoriades is a South African born black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu who has traveled around the world training with different grapplers to become more well rounded. He competed actively from the early 2000s until he claimed the title of British Open Champion in 2012. Gregoriades is well known to be the first person promoted to black belt by one of the best competitors of all time, Roger Gracie.

Gregoriades was born in the fall of 1979 as a citizen of one of the three capital cities of South Africa, called Cape Town. He comes from a long line of martial artists and was introduced to judo at a young age by his father, himself a black belt in the art of karate. He showed himself to be a dedicated student from the outset.

Nic continued to progress through the judo belt system until he achieved the rank of brown belt. All the while, however, his eyes were set on Jiu-Jitsu. Unable to find a place to train BJJ in Cape Town, Gregoriades joined a more general submission wrestling club in the year 2000.

After about four years of training in submission wrestling, Gregoriades moved to London, England to join Roger Gracie’s academy in 2004. He would train for only four additional years with Gracie before being awarded his black belt from the noted world champion in 2008. This moment also marked the first time that Roger had promoted someone to black belt.

In addition to his own journey through Jiu-Jitsu, Nic has worked hard to help others along their own personal paths. He is one of the founders of a worldwide affiliation known as the “Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood”, which advocates three main tenets of the sport: community, self-reflexivity, and open-mindedness. Gregoriades has also hosted multiple podcasts, including London Real and Digital Communion.

After the 2012 British Open Championships, Nic took a trip to the Amazon to experience something new. He has often discussed how his journey with the ancient plant medicine Ayahuasca changed his life. To be sure, Nic made some radical moves by taking 5 years to travel the world, teach Jiu-Jitsu, and learn about humanity. 

In addition to his successful online business, his thriving BJJ association, and his in-person coaching, Nic is also a talented creator of online instructional videos.

    Who Did Nicholas Gregoriades Lose To?

    After winning the 2012 British Open at black belt level, Nic hoped to repeat his performance at the tournament the following year, in 2013. He made it to the finals in the adult black belt medium heavyweight division where he faced Leo Querioz, a member of the well-known Checkmat affiliation. The match was won by points, with Leo managing to stall for several minutes as Gregoriades attacked from the back.
