Murilo Amaral Biography

Murilo Amaral was born on June 04, 1993 in Porto Alegre (RS) the capital city of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, in southern Brazil, growing up in neighboring Santo Antônio da Patrulha.

Despite not being particularly embedded in a sporting culture as a child, during his teenage years, Murilo grew interested in jiu-jitsu after a few of his close friends joined an academy. Amaral eventually decided to join them, on March 2009, to the local BJJ gym where he met the head coach Jeferson Adam.

Adam, himself a student of Mario Reis, quickly realized the talent in Murilo Amaral and started bringing Amaral to Reis’ school in Porto Alegre. The two (Jeferson and Mario) followed the development of Murilo closely from white to black belt, a rank achieved midway through 2018.

Part of Murilo’s development was also spent coaching BJJ, an activity he first undertook as a blue belt, later embracing this facet of the sport fully, as a purple belt in late 2012 – early 2013.
