Meyram Maquine Biography

Meyram Maquine was born on October 29, 2000, in Manaus, the capital of the vast state of Amazonas. In the heart of the Amazon Jungle.

Martial arts and sporting activities came in at an early age for Meyram, who joined capoeira at the age of 5, influenced by his father, a capoeira, and jiu-jitsu enthusiast. It wasn’t long after this initial contact with the Brazilian kicking combat style that Manique joined a BJJ classroom as well, being around 5 or 6 years old at the time.

Manique’s first grappling instructor was Alcenor Alves, who graded Meyram up until his blue belt. It was also coach Alves who first believed in the young athlete’s capabilities, incentivizing Meyram to seek a more challenging experience with a larger jiu-jitsu team, setting up a transfer of the Manaus prodigy to São Paulo state, where he was offered an athletic scholarship with the famous team – Guigo Jiu-Jitsu.

At Guigo’s academy, being tutored by Mr. Guigo himself (Luiz Guilherme), Meyram, a blue belt at the time, quickly became recognized as one of the country’s most promising athletes. His reputation would hit more global proportions once he started competing in the United States.

During 2016 Meyram did his first camp in Maryland, United States, making the most of Guigo JJ/Team Lloyd Irvin’s link/student exchange protocol. The visit was a success and Maquine returned to the famous fight-camp from then on every year, in preparation for major international tournaments, representing both TLI and GG.

After a few solid years in the colored belt divisions during 2017, 2018, and 2019, Meyram Maquine worked hard with Guigo and his personal trainer Anaue Pavanello, with the objective of making 2020 his last and best competitive year under the brown belt rank. Unfortunately, the COVID19 pandemic put most of the grappling tournament scene on hold that year, as well as Meyram’s World title aspirations as a colored belt. Understanding that the career of Manique could not be stifled by another year in this division, coach Guigo decided to promote the talented athlete to black belt on June 20, 2020.
