2.1. Early Life

2.4. Went to Rio de Janeiro

Ramon Lemos decided at the age of 16 that he wanted to fully devote himself to a career in Jiu-Jitsu, which led him to the Nova Uniao Headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He learned the true essence of Jiu-Jitsu under André Pederneiras' guidance. Lemos's yearning to become a teacher was shaped by Pederneiras' creative teaching methodology, which left a strong positive influence on Ramon.

2.5. Invited by Vitor Ribeiro

Around 2000, Ramos’ Jiu-Jitsu learning ultimately led him to Rio Claro. Ramon was approached by Vitor Ribeiro and Pederneiras about opening a Nova Uniao Academy in Rio Claro (State of Sao Paulo), which he happily accepted. There, he built his own program with a strong emphasis on promoting moral values to his students and a commendable evangelical influence along with grappling techniques. With time, he began to distance himself from the Nova Uniao tradition and drew nearer to the Brasa school, a BJJ training group with strong roots in Sao Paulo.

2.6. Left Brasa Academy

In October 2008, Ramón Lemos left Brasa to start his own team. To form the Atos team, he joined André Galvao and Gustavo Campos.

2.10. In 2010 Atos Jiu-JItsu Result

Ramon was super excited at the extraordinary result of his students in the 2010 Championship. He shared his feeling by saying:

“It is a magical moment in my life. I just started my career as an MMA trainer, but in fact, I am not an MMA trainer, but a Jiu-Jitsu trainer who works with MMA fighters. It has been a great year. We won two trials in Abu Dhabi. We had a great result at the Brazilian Championship, and we finished second in the Team Championship. Gui Mendes won the World Cup and our other players won medals. I expect a lot more from our players next year.”

2.12. Roman Lemos Shared His Journey

Ramos was extremely grateful for his coaches and mates throughout the BJJ journey. He acknowledged that his journey from scratch to the head coach of the national team of UAE is not so smooth. Not everyone has always supported his objectives.

“The biggest challenge for me in BJJ was not in BJJ itself but in life. Everyone around me said that it was not going to work out, that I had to stop it and go to a regular job because doing BJJ, I wasn’t going to make money, I wasn’t going to provide a good life for my family, and many other negative things,” he says. “I confess it was very difficult, but I always had something inside me telling me to continue. Thank God I did. I believe that everything is possible for those who do their best and believe in their dreams and put some work toward them.”
(Ramon Lemos)

Ramos always tried to encourage his students to pursue their passion.

“Always believe in yourself; you are capable of doing great things. If you dedicate yourself and love what you do, everything will be alright. No matter the circumstances, keep moving forward with faith, always.”
(Ramon Lemos)

After the outbreak of COVID-19, UAEJJF organized two big tournaments. The UAE team coached by Ramon was invited to participate in the Asian Beach game in Sanya, China, and Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, in Thailand.

“We have two big tournaments. Both competitions are very important, and our goal is to challenge for medals in every category that we compete in,” he said. “While the national team has not participated in an international competition for quite some time, all our fighters are in good touch, thanks to the many training camps and domestic competitions organized through the year that have ensured that momentum has been maintained and our athletes have been in touch with the sport. The 2021 domestic season, one that is long and intense, will play a crucial role in our preparations and help fighters adjust to the demands of competitive jiu-jitsu.”
(Ramon Lemos)

While talking about tournament preparation, Ramon said:

“We did not compromise on our preparations, we have been preparing with a clear focus on these two big international tournaments for quite some time now and I am confident it will all pay off on the mat.”
(Ramon Lemos)

2.16. UAE National Jiu-Jitsu Championship

UAEJJF organized the international UAE Championship in 2021, which offered double-ranking points. Romans shared his thoughts about the international tournament:

“International tournaments are very intense and require a fighter to have had enough mat time in competitive settings. With the way the new season is scheduled, our fighters will have competed in several bouts before they start preparing for the Asian Beach Games and will have built a strong base. Our job is to then iron out any technical difficulties and ensure that the fighters are mentally ready to take on the pressure of an international tournament,”
