Meyram Maquiné was born on 29 October 2000 in Manaus, State of Amazonas, Brazil. There’s no wonder why Meyram is one of the fierce fighters of his era because he belonged to the heart of Brazil, the Amazon Jungle.
2.2. Meyram Maquiné and Capoeira
Meyram Maquiné was always interested in martial arts. He was involved in competitive sports from a young age. He started capoeira when he was only 5 years old. It was mainly because his father was a capoeira practitioner.
Capoeira is a combination of dance, acrobatics, and music. It is actually considered an Afro-Brazilian martial art.
2.3. Started BJJ
Meyram quickly became fascinated by capoeira and decided to learn the actual martial art. He was only 5 or 6 years old when he enrolled in a BJJ class. Meyram really admired capoeira techniques that taught him kicking and some other moves. Being a Brazilian, the native Brazilian fighting spirit was in his blood and he knew that sooner or later he had to satisfy the fighting quest.
But it was fortunate enough for Meyram that he fell in love with the grappling sport. It was his love that made him such a staunch and famous grappler in no time.
2.4. Trained Under Alcenor Alves
Meyram got BJJ training under Alcenor Alves. Alves was the one who instantly recognized Meyram’s talent and gave his full attention to that young struggling child. Alves knew that Meyram was a young talent who under the right coach would bring fame to not only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but also for himself.
2.5. Transferred to Sao Paulo
Alves taught Meyram every technique he was skilled in. But he wanted more for his hard-working and deserving student. He had full trust in his student’s competence. He therefore encouraged Meyram to train with a more accomplished and skilled team outside of Manaus i.e., in São Paulo.

2017-2019 were the peak years of fame and success for Meyram. He not only won world championships rather proved himself as an expert and professional grappler. He had long ago decided to pursue BJJ as a career but he became more serious about BJJ in those years.
He wanted to earn his Black Belt in 2020, but due to Covid-19, he could not participate in fights. He wanted to make 2020 his most bright year as a Brown Belt but a pandemic ruined his plans. He could not travel to compete and had to remain in isolation.
