Igor Paiva Biography

Igor Paiva was born on July 4, 1990 in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil.

Growing up in the Grajaú area Paiva started practicing sports, as do most Brazilian children, through football (soccer) a sport he practiced at a competitive level from 7 years. Although extremely invested in sports during his formative years, ranging from football to swimming and tracking, Paiva was forced to abandon his extracurricular activities and focus on his studies at the age of 14.

When Igor was 17 he and his brother Vinicius were invited by a good friend to try a jiu jitsu class at a gym led by the Mendes brothers – Bruno (Tank) and Augusto (Tanquinho). Paiva quickly became one of the academy’s top students, conquering several important trophies while earning the confidence of his coaches to become an assistant instructor there as a purple belt.

His series of positive results competing in the lower belt divisions of this sport’s international circuit earned Igor Paiva his black belt on June 14, 2017 by his coach Bruno Mendes.
