Tainan Dalpra Biography

Tainan Dalpra was born on November 6, 2000, in Florianópolis, state of Santa Catarina, Brazil.

Growing up, Tainan practiced a number of sports, from soccer to boxing, although the mats were his first and only true passion. Much of this love for sports came by way of his father, Deivid Soares, an avid sportsman who found an interest in jiu-jitsu when Dalpra was a toddler. Soares – who later became a black belt himself – would often bring Tainan to the dojo, to wait around while the adults practiced, and gradually introduced young Dalpra to the mats from the age of 5.

From starting out at Everson Ávila’s academy, where he trained for 3 years with his father, Dalpra went on to represent the AS Academy under coach Carlos Dorado. As he started being successful in local tournaments, Dalpra’s competitive nature drove him to challenge those at the highest level of the sport, making his first big tournament-related trip to the United States in 2014 where he met Rafael and Guilherme Mendes of the AOJ academy. After training with the famous coaching duo and realizing the level of training available for him in California, the young Tainan Dalpra decided to move to Costa Mesa and train with the Mendes Brothers as a long-term arrangement. A decision that came to fruition in 2015.

Tainan’s arrival to Costa Mesa matched the start of the Mendes Brothers, now famous, Believe And Achieve jiu-jitsu scholarship program, which focused on developing “diamonds in the rough” – young, highly talented athletes in need of a more structured development system. Dalpra was one of the first names out of the B&A workgroup to gain notoriety in jiu-jitsu’s international circuit.

In October 2020, after an incredible colored belt career, Tainan Dalpra was promoted to black belt by his instructor, Guilherme Mendes, while standing on the podium of the IBJJF Pan American Championship.
