Paul Ardila-Ibarra Biography

Paul Ardila-Ibarra was born on 13, 1991 in Bucaramanga – Colombia, moving to the United States when he was 9 years old. Once in the US Paul’s family settled in Atlanta, Georgia where Ardila-Ibarra lived until his 21st birthday.

It was in Georgia that Paul started wrestling, during his freshman year of high school (14YO), a sport in which he excelled, placing twice (5th and 3rd) for his state under folkstyle rules and becoming state champion in Greco-Roman.

During high school, Paul was also introduced to jiu-jitsu (Summer of 2009) by his brother Sergio Ardila-Ibarra during wrestling’s off-season. He returned to BJJ training consistently on March 2010, doing so under Roan “Jucao” Carneiro.

Once he entered the University of Georgia, Paul represented the establishment’s wrestling program at a high level, placing 4th at the NCWA national tournament in 2012 (197lbs), winning that same tournament two years later – with a break in 2013 due to Ardila-Ibarra’s stay in Brazil.

In 2015 Paul Ardila-Ibarra spent most of the year in Orlando, Florida. There he trained almost exclusively at Alliance – Orlando, a gym run by Brad Thompson, where Paul was coached by the multiple-time world champion Bruno Malfacine. During that year Ardila-Ibarra achieved important wins at the ADCC US Trials World Championship (brown belt).

On January 2016, while splitting his life between jiu-jitsu and being a law student at the University of Notre Dame, Paul was promoted to black belt by his long-time coach, Roan Carneiro – who awarded all of Ardila-Ibarra’s previous belts.
