INSTRUCTOR

BIOGRAPHY:

Karate was the first martial art Tiago practiced, starting at the age of 8. At 11 he changed his focus to kung fu – a time when he started dipping his toes in competition as well. These tournament experiences were stopped when Rocha moved to the city of Uberlandia as a 14 year old, to focus on his studies.

In Uberlandia Tiago lived with his uncle and aunt. Their son (Tiago’s cousin) trained jiu jitsu and quickly introduced Rocha to this martial art. Tiago was naturally suited for this sport, and although he trained with a few different instructors at the start, his “real” jiu jitsu instruction began with Elan Santiago, one of the pioneers for this martial art in the city.

For 4 years Santiago worked on the development of jiu jitsu in the region, forming important athletes such as Tiago, but also Lucas Lepri, Gabriel Goulart and Claudio Silva. When Elan returned to Rio de Janeiro, Rocha (a brown belt by then) and the other top students took control of the class. To continue their technical growth, and to have a trusted leader from whom to receive guidance, the team joined Fernando Terere‘s academy (TT) in neighbouring Sao Paulo. This fruitful relationship lasted until 2006, when TT was dismantled. That year the Minas Gerais workgroup joined Alliance of Fábio Gurgel.

On November 2009, after a series of good performances on an international level, Fábio Gurgel promoted Tiago Rocha to black belt. A ceremony where Elan Santiago was also present.

Tiago Rocha (who is also a History graduate from the University of Uberlândia), added judo to his training routine feeling the importance of the takedown game in jiu jitsu’s competitive environment. He earned the grade of black belt in judo in 2015.
