Paulo Miyao is a black belt in Jiu Jitsu under Cicero Costha. Considered a phenomenon of the sport since his teens, Paulo and his twin brother João Miyao (also known as the Miyao Brothers), virtually closed out all major competitions around the world in the lower ranks, having even won medals at the top tournaments in the absolute division, including the world championships in 2013, which is an amazing accomplishment for a fighter of the super feather weight class (64kg/141lbs).

Biography of Paulo Miyao

Paulo Miyao was born on May 11, 1991 in the city Andirá in the state of Paraná – Brazil, along with his twin brother João Miyao. They are 3rd generation Japanese descendants with humble beginnings, being the sons of a farmer and a housewife.

The Miyao’s began their martial arts instruction through Judo, but found Jiu Jitsu at the age of 16 and never looked back. The Miyao bros first teacher was Adriano Carvalho, who early on recognized the talent these two boys possessed and encouraged them to train and fight more regularly. With the Jiu Jitsu “bug” growing and growing, the two brothers decided they wanted to become Jiu Jitsu fighters professionally and so as they soon as they were of age they moved to São Paulo (against the wishes of their parents) to pursue their dream.

In São Paulo the Miyao brothers found a home in Cicero Costha’s social project, the PSLPB or Projeto Social Lutando Pelo Bem (Fighting for Good Social Project), a place that has brought to BJJ great quality fighters such as Leandro Lo or Mauricio Cristo. Living within the academy along with other eager athletes, the brothers began winning many championships focusing many of their techniques on the Mendes brothers (Rafael and Guilherme). Their sharp and bendy guards and the fact the Miyao’s were consistently medalling in the absolute divisions weighing only 64 kilos brought the curiosity of the media to the Paraná duo, and with this curiosity/recognition came the sponsorships needed for siblings to showcase their skills in the top competitions of the world, a test they passed with flying colors.

Although Paulo Miyao has received a brown belt before João, João caught up with his brother and the two ended up getting the desired black belt together on June 2013.
