Luiz Paulo Biography

Luiz Paulo was born on July 15, 1998, in Manaus, the capital city of the state of Amazonas, Brazil.

Although an avid football (soccer) player during his childhood, Luiz’s sporting ambitions turned to jiu-jitsu after an episode with a friend at the age of 12. While playing-fighting, his buddy applied a mata-leão choke (RNC) on Luiz, which forced him to quit. After the interaction, the friend taught Paulo the maneuver and told him he had started taking jiu-jitsu classes where he had learned the technique. Curious to learn more, the Manauara decided to follow his friend to the grappling academy that same week.

Melqui Galvão was Luiz Paulo’s first instructor, the man who took Luiz from white to black belt. It was also coach Galvão who instilled in Paulo the desire to become a professional jiu-jitsu player, helping the young athlete compete abroad and experience the level of professionalism applied outside of the Amazonas region, where jiu-jitsu was seen as a profession.

Following coach Melqui Galvão’s lead, Luiz Paulo practiced judo and wrestling to complement his jiu-jitsu technique and range of grappling knowledge, this wile also spending time training in different grappling training rooms such as PSLPB’s academy (Cicero Costha) early on, and Dream Art in São Paulo, Brazil. After a successful career in the colored belt divisions of jiu-jitsu, Luiz was graded to black belt in a ceremony that took place on October 15, 2020.
