Thalyta Silva, commonly known as “Thata”, is a professional grappler and a jiu-jitsu black belt under Paulo Rezende who was developed in Rezende’s famous academy in Poço de Caldas, Minas Gerais, the same training center that produced Marcelo Garcia, Matheus Diniz, Rodnei Barbosa, Reinaldo Ribeiro, Tácio Carneiro, to name a few. Thata broke into the grappling scene as a colored belt, competing in the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) circuit, later cementing her claim as one of the top athletes in the sport as a black belt.

Thalyta Silva Biography

Thalyta Silva was born on August 22, 1999, in Formiga a Brazilian town in the state of Minas Gerais.

Growing up, Thata was extremely sporty, playing every activity available in her school, at a competitive level. This included football (soccer), volleyball, handball, basketball, running, long jump, and even chess.

Martial arts entered Thalyta’s life early on as well, first, through capoeira at the age of 11, and then, 3 years later adding taekwondo, kickboxing, and jiu-jitsu to her weekly activities. Silva immediately started competing in kickboxing and BJJ, but took more enjoyment from grappling and decided to focus on that over all others 3 or 4 months into her training.

Thalyta’s first instructor was a man by the name of Donizete, who guided Silva throughout the juvenile ranks. At the very start of her martial arts career, Thata set her mind on a professional fighting career in jiu-jitsu, a path that led to her cage-fighting debut at the age of 16 as a yellow belt. Thalyta had several fights in MMA as a teenager in several events, including the prestigious Jungle Fight, but in 2017, after she turned 18YO, the young Minas Gerais athlete decided to focus solely on jiu-jitsu, then joining the famous Casa do Atleta (Athlete House) of coach Paulo Rezende, in Poços de Caldas, the same grappling hub that developed familiar faces of the sport such as Marcelo Garcia, Reinaldo Ribeiro, and Matheus Diniz.

Paulão Rezende received Thalyta at his training center when she was a green belt and proceeded to rank the young athlete in every belt from then on, all the way up to her black belt promotion on April 27, 2021.
