Thiago Macedo Biography

Thiago Macedo was born on November 27, 1994 in Manaus one of the major cities in northwestern Brazil, and the capital of the vast state of Amazonas.

As a 7 year old child Thiago was signed on to Jiu Jitsu classes by influence of his older brother – João Bosco who already was an assistant coach at Orley Lobato’s academy. Bosco and coach Francimar became Macedo’s first instructors as well as Orley himself.

During the first few years Macedo took jiu jitsu as an extracurricular activity, but as he reached his 11th birthday he started getting more competitive about his training and focusing on the competition side of the martial art.

Macedo moved from Lobato’s academy early on, to pursue his competitive goals in one of the most tournament driven schools in the state of Amazonas – Mestre Pina Academy, training under Pina himself (Faustino Neto) Thiago climbed the ranks of jiu jitsu, from blue to black belt (promoted on August 2015).

After high-school Thiago was offered the opportunity to travel to the United States. Macedo’s brother knew Rodrigo Pinheiro well (a Manauara coach residing in the US) and the two Bosco and Pinheiro arranged for a student exchange program between the two BJJ schools.

After this period residing in the US, Rodrigo Pinheiro showed interest in keeping Thiago Macedo over, competing and helping promote his academy. An offer full heatedly accepted by Macedo.
