Carlson Gracie Black Belt Demetrius Ramos was born in Brazil and was introduced to BJJ at the age of 16. In 1992, he joined the academy of Professor Gutembergue Melo, a Carlson Gracie black belt. Demetrius trained hard for many years and had the privilege to roll with many of the best from the Carlson Gracie team: Liborio, Amaury Bitetti, Murilo Bustamonte, De La Riva, Carlao Barreto, Minotauro and Carslson Gracie Jr. as well as the master himself, Carlson Gracie Sr.
Demetrius came to the United States in 1998 to attend the University of Arizona while continuing his training and competing with notable success in Jiu Jitsu tournaments in Arizona and California. He began training with Rodrigo Medeiros, a Carlson Gracie Sr. black belt on the Carlson Gracie Team, earning his brown belt and then his black belt.
Recently while working in Brazil, Professor Ramos was invited by then UFC heavy weight champion Jr. Dos Santos to help him train his Jiu-Jitsu for the UFC.
Having been linked to Carlson the Gracie from the beginning of his career, Demetrius is very loyal to the Carlson Gracie/BJJ Revolution team. He firmly believes promotion only comes when well earned through hard training and competitive achievement in tournaments. His students work hard, and train with the best.
