ADCC Spotlight: Lucas Lepri
As we scan the list of ADCC athletes for our BJJ Fanatics family members, one of the most accomplished BJJ players we come across is Lucas Lepri.
Lepri hails from Minas Gerais in Brazil where his childhood included athletics of all kinds: Skating, Swimming, Judo, and others.
He first turned to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu after seeing Fernando Pontes demonstrating his training regimen on television.
Spurred on, Lepri enrolled in Elan Santiago's academy. After a couple of affiliation changes, both Santiago and Lepri found a home with Alliance MMA.
Lepri earned his black belt in 2006.
The boom in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu's popularity in America led Lepri to New York City when Alliance needed another coach to meet student demand.
Since becoming a black belt, Lepri has taken the competition world by storm, winning the IBJJF Pan Championship in No-Gi in 2009 and the IBJJF European Open in 2011. He won the IBJJF Pan Championship on five different occasions, and he won the IBJJF World Championship seven times.
Lepri will compete in the -77 kg division at the ADCC World Championships.
