A slight-framed fighter who commands respect, Ary Farias wasn’t the slightest bit satisfied with his last performance in Jiu-Jitsu, last March at the Gramado leg of the Abu Dhabi tryouts.

“I’m indignant, to tell you the truth. To be honest, I feel that that was one of the worst performances of my entire career. I was lagging, wasn’t moving, couldn’t muster up any pressure and was in bad physical form. A car without fuel can’t get anywhere. I feel that when you’re not doing something for the love of it and are unmotivated, the result will always be negative. And that’s what happened. I didn’t give my max in training,” he told

“I feel I was also suffering from being so far from my family; but that’s life. Now I’m back to my full focus, doing my best in training, and I’ve got an efficient method for my physical-conditioning work. Now I’m only going to compete if it’s to shine. I went to Gramado because I missed being on the mat, and I also went because there were folks who wanted to see me fight. I went against the orders of my master Ramon Lemos. He’d told me: ‘You’re not prepared, and it won’t end well,’ and I went anyways,” he revealed.

A Brazilian National champion many times over and runner-up at the last Jiu-Jitsu World Championship after closing out with Gui Mendes, the Amazonas State native addressed his main mistake at the Trials, when he lost to Isaque Paiva via judges’ decision.

“I don’t like making excuses for losing but I know and am fully aware of the mistake I made. I did everything wrong. I messed up in training, in my diet, was stubborn and made a hash of my strategy. In other words, I didn’t do anything to achieve victory. Most people don’t know it, but I only had three weeks to get ready for the competition, and in three weeks it’s impossible to become a champion; there’s no such thing as a champion who hasn’t trained. Champions are built on sacrifice and grueling training,” philosophized the black belt, who was plagued by injury but is now healed.


“I got injured after the Worlds and was sidelined from training for practically seven months. But I showed that I’m not afraid to lose; I don’t duck a challenge. Congratulations to my opponent for knowing how to capitalize on where I went wrong. The kid deserved it and was worthy of the win. The outcome of the match came down to a mere trifle, and that’s what vexes me the most, because when you enter a match and get left in the dust, you have to put it in your head that you have to put in a lot of training to overcome that adversary. Now when the outcome of the match comes down to minor details, it eats you up inside. But now I’m doing everything just right and in earnest in training. And I’m dying to face him again,” he added, targeting a rematch with Isaque Paiva in the featherweight division at the Brazilian Nationals this coming weekend.

“I feel the best response is to overcome him—defeat doesn’t sit well with me. I’m the kind of kid who demands a lot of himself, so losing to me is something overwhelming and a symbol of frustration. The best I can do to dispel this bitter feeling that’s making me lose sleep is to train, train, train. I’m going to make up for the ground I lost, because crying about it won’t help me at all. So it’s about forging ahead,” he said.

Ary also brought up that he was “dubiously” docked a point in the tryouts semifinal.

“It’s rough going out there with the referee against you, practically the entire gymnasium wanting to see you lose. I can’t figure out why there are so many begrudging people out there. They can’t find it in them to root for others to succeed. I’d like to understand and know from the match referee what his criteria was for penalizing me that point at the end of the match. For lack of combativeness? I was in my opponent’s closed guard, him with his hand on my belt, making it impossible for me to move. I’ve always played an attacking game and strived to tap opponents out. But as I always say, the biggest mistake was mine: letting the match go to an ill-prepared referee’s decision,” he said in closing.

Stay tuned to this weekend for complete coverage of the Brazilian Nationals.
