Arnaldo Maidana Biography

Arnaldo Maidana was born on May 17, 1991 in Aracatuba – São Paulo state, Brazil.

A big fan of martial arts from early on, Arnaldo began his training at the young age of 7 through capoeira and taekwondo. Years later he picked up an interest in jiu-jitsu by watching his older brother, who was an avid grappler, deciding to join him when he was 16 years old (2005).

Arnaldo’s career in grappling started with coach Gilberto Gabas in Aracatuba, an instructor who stood by Maidana all the way to black belt, a promotion achieved in December 2013. Shortly after earning the grade, Maidana moved to the United States to be closer to the jiu-jitsu circuit and become a professional in the sport, as a competitor and coach. Then joining the Checkmat team network.
