Biography
Oliveira was born in a poor family in the favela of Vicente de Carvalho in the tourist town Guarujá, São Paulo, Brazil. He was diagnosed with rheumatic fever and heart murmur, which severely affected his ankle, the medic told his family that he could become paraplegic. Despite all the challenges, Oliveira was introduced to Brazilian jiu-jitsu by a neighbour named "Paulo", while his family had very low income, the BJJ gym's coach offered classes for free as part of a social program. His family helped fund his training by selling street snacks and discarded cardboard. Charles Oliveira began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Roger Coelho at the age of 12, winning his first major title as a white belt in 2003.
