Waldyr Filho Biography

Waldyr Filho was born on August 18, 1995, in Belém do Pará, Brazil, a city many claim to be the birthplace of jiu-jitsu in South-America.

Throughout his youth Filho was very connected with a sporting lifestyle, playing football (soccer) and basketball competitively before finding karate, at the age of 9, influenced by his older brother who was a student of the Japanese martial art under the guidance of Yoshinzo Machida, Lyoto Machida’s father.

It was also by the influence of his brother, Marcelo, that Filho joined jiu-jitsu in February 2007. Marcelo was a big fan of cage-fighting and embedded that love for the sport in the younger Waldyr. Looking for somewhere to learn the moves they saw on the Pride FC ring, particularly the grappling ones, Filho joined Ricardo Marques‘ academy, the famous BTT de Juiz de Fora.

Waldyr felt a great connection with jiu-jitsu from early on in his grappling career, a career filled with solid performances at the colored belt levels of BJJ. His drive for competitive grappling led him to the decision of going pro at the age of 19, with the full support of his family, particularly his father who sponsored Filho during the first years of his career.

After a strong career as a colored belt, Waldir Filho was promoted to black belt, on July 30, 2019, by his lifelong coach, Ricardo Marques.
