Pedro Maia Biography

Pedro Maia was born on October 27, 1999, in Ceilândia, a suburb of Brazil’s capital city, Brazil.

Drawn to martial arts from an early age, Maia’s first combat sports experience appeared through tae-kwon-do, a sport he practiced when he was a child. The experience with TKD was short-lived, nevertheless, his parents believed such activities would be greatly beneficial for Pedro, given his hyperactive behavior.

Pedro’s father was a fan of mixed martial arts and followed the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) promotion closely. Seeing the success jiu-jitsu had inside the octagon, he decided to enroll young Maia in the CEI Jiu-Jitsu School, near his home. At CEI, Pedro was taught by Cláudio Careca, a well-known instructor who graded Maia from white to purple belt.

As a purple belt, Pedro met Saulo Ribeiro, one of the legends of our sport. Saulo was an influential figure in Maia’s development as a grappler, as he allowed the Brasília native to travel to San Diego, California, and train at Ribeiro’s University of Jiu-Jitsu on a full scholarship. It was also Saulo who promoted Pedro Maia to brown belt.

Upon Maia’s return to his home country, after the US experience, Pedro joined the workgroup of Felipe Rair of whom he earned his black belt in 2020. Pedro Maia would go on to open his own jiu-jitsu school named “We Flow” in 2021, in Brasília.
