Thamara Ferreira Biography

Thamara Ferreira was born on November 26, 1995, in Suzano, a municipality in São Paulo state, Brazil, growing up in the neighboring Itaquaquecetuba city.

During her childhood and pre-teens, Thamara already led the life of an athlete under the guidance of Rodrigo Miranda, playing artistic gymnastics on a national and international level while reaching the Brazilian National campus in Guarulhos (SP) for a few months, before breaking from gymnastics at the age of 12. She returned to competitive sports during her teenage years, this time through football (soccer), playing for her regional team for 2 years before she quit to join a pre-college program and work on her law degree.

It was during this period, at the age of 16, that Ferreira decided to try jiu-jitsu. She was not training any sport at the time and being connected with sports since a very young age, Thamara felt the urge to connect with an activity. Finding that her college offered free BJJ classes, she decided to join, even though she had no idea of what jiu-jitsu was.

The coach at Ferreira’s campus was none other than the world-renowned black belt, Marco Barbosa, who remained as Thamara’s instructor up until her blue belt. Interestingly, Ferreira did not enjoy jiu-jitsu at first, and it was only the tournament aspect of grappling that kept Thamara in this sport, as it played well with her highly competitive nature.

By the time Thamara was promoted to blue belt, Ferreira became truly embedded in grappling culture, then deciding to quit her college degree to focus solely on her jiu-jitsu career. It was also at this point that Thamara joined the Cicero Costha team, a workgroup with which she remained all the way up to black belt, a rank she received in June 2019.
