Evangelista started training Jiu Jitsu when he was 15 years old invited by friends under the master Alexandre Barauna, from the UGF.
After the first competition in 2001, with only two months of training, any doubt about his own ability has been dropped. The pleasure felt when competing escorts him to the present day.
He received his Black Belt from master Julio Cesar in 2008.
