2. Ana Carolina Vieira’s Biography

Ana Carolina Vieira Srour was born on November 19, 1993, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Sometimes, she is also known as Baby or Carol. She is one of the most popular female fighters in the middleweight division. She is the younger sister of the famous Rodolfo Vieira who is known for his grappling style. Vieira participated extensively inBJJ tournaments. Over the years, she has won three IBJJF Gi World Championships and made a name for herself in the competitive No-Gi world. In 2016, she received her BJJ black belt from Julio Cesar.

3. Ana Carolina Vieira’s Early Life & Amateur Fighting

3.1. Ana Carolina Vieira’s Love for Gymnastics

At a young age, Ana Carolina was not initially interested in martial arts even though her brother was a prominent athlete. Anna wanted to be a gymnast. She was passionate and searched for gymnastics clubs to train in the sport, but couldn’t find any gymnastics club near her house. Srour couldn’t fulfill her dream of becoming a gymnast.

3.2. The Beginning of Capoeira & Jiu-Jitsu Training

When she realized that pursuing a career in gymnastics was not an option, Srour decided to train in capoeira (a Brazilian martial art that combines the elements of dance, music, and acrobats). After a short period, at the age of 14, she incorporated jiu-jitsu training into her schedule.

3.3. Ana Carolina Vieira’s Quits Jiu-Jitsu Training

Srour’s interest in jiu-jitsu grew from the first training class. She developed a passion to learn new BJJ techniques and wanted to polish her grappling skills. However, the lack of female trainers and students in her class prevented her from fully enjoying the learning process. Moreover, the injuries and different scars embarrassed her so much that she left the academy. She took a break for some time and started watching her brother’s training and practices, developing more interest in jiu-jitsu. Her family also supported and encouraged her.

3.4. Return to the Mats

When she was 17, Srour went with her family to watch her brother, Rodolfo Vieira, fight at a local BJJ event. After seeing the family’s endless support for her brother, she gained motivation and started thinking about resuming jiu-jitsu training. As a result, Srour returned to the mats and found much-needed guidance in her first coach, Gabriel Marinho.

3.5. A Remarkable Juvenile Victory

Marinho trained Srour well and urged her to participate in the Abu Dhabi World Pro Trials in 2012. At this point, Srour had just received her blue belt, but she hesitated to compete as the tournament seemed too tough. However, her brother and family supported her so she agreed to compete. She won the first four matches - three by submission - and reached the finals to fight against an intimidating opponent, Monique Elias.

3.6. Professional Jiu-Jitsu Training

Winning in Brazil boosted Srour’s confidence and career. She decided to become a professional jiu-jitsu athlete and began training at the headquarters of Grappling Fight Team Jiu-Jitsu Academy (GFT). There she met Julio Cesar, the head instructor of the team. Later, she also trained with the SK2 training coach, Luiz Fernando.

GFT’s female team became prominent because of Ana’s performance. She won many international tournaments including three IBJJF World Championships. She received her black jiu-jitsu belt in June 2016.

At the GFT academy, Ana Carolina not only found excellent mentorship but also great camaraderie. She drew inspiration from fellow grapplers such as Vanessa Oliveira, Nadia Melo, Mayssa Bastos, Thamires Aquinos, and Amanda Monteiro.

In 2012, Ana Carolina competed in the IBJJF World Championship for the first time and won the gold medal. One victory led to another, and Srour managed to bag gold medals in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. In 2018 and 2021, she secured 3rd place on the podium and received bronze medals.
