Amanda Magda Biography

Amanda Magda was born on January 17, 1978, in São Paulo, Brazil.

Growing up Magda played volleyball and handball for her school while also practicing swimming. Later, after her scholastic sporting life, Amanda joined a Muay Thai club and in 2014, a jiu-jitsu academy, though that first grappling experience ended up short-lived as Amanda was forced to pause her training schedule to give birth to her second child.

A few months after becoming a mother for the second time, Amanda started experiencing high levels of anxiety in mundane circumstances. This affliction led her to see a psychiatrist who medicated her and led her down a path of apathy for daily activities and life in general. The medication also affected her weight as she grew into a physical shape she no longer felt comfortable with.

The weight gain drove Amanda Magda to a combat sports club (MAVORS in Perdizes, SP) where he re-started kickboxing and Muay Thai training. Being active vastly improved her quality of life and as that improved, her dependence on the medication dwelled off.

In 2016, Amanda’s kickboxing coach offered her a jiu-jitsu kimono and told her to try grappling as he believed she would enjoy it just as much as striking. Magda tried a jiu-jitsu class that day and immediately fell in love with the sport, becoming an avid student while taking 2 classes per day, often taking private classes as well.

Amanda’s growth in jiu-jitsu was exponential, first with coach Rodrigo Pacheco (Tartaruga) of team Demian Maia, who promoted Magda to blue belt, and later with Talita Nogueira and Robson Rezende who promoted her to purple belt in August 2018 after the São Paulo native won the IBJJF World Masters tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

In February 2019 Amanda Magda was introduced to Luis Marques, one of the region’s top black belts who took over much of Magda’s development from then on, promoting her to the brown and black belt ranks, the latter in a ceremony that took place on December 11, 2021.
