Kennedy Maciel Biography

Kennedy Maciel was born on January 02, 1997, in São Carlos – a city located inside the Brazilian state of São Paulo.

Although the son of a jiu-jitsu legend – Rubens Charles Maciel, Kennedy was not “raised” on the mats as it’s been the case with so many other children of grappling legends. Instead, Rubens moved to the United States in 2007 and it was only in late 2012 that the young Maciel joined him in California and started his introduction to jiu-jitsu.

With his father by his side, Kennedy’s talent immediately started shining through. This was evident after his first IBJJF Pan medal (gold) in 2013, just a few months into his training.

Working almost immediately as a full-time grappler, Kennedy started helping his father with the kids’ classes. Through his hard work and dedication, Maciel conquered the lower belt divisions of the sport with repeated success at the World and European Open tournaments.

Kennedy’s many triumphs as a brown belt, particularly in 2018 a period in which Maciel went unbeaten with 7 gold medals in 7 tournaments, led his father Rubens Charles to promote the young Maciel to black belt on June 2018.
