These twin brothers are from Brazil. They’re the Miyao Brothers, Paulo (right) and Joao (left). They came from nothing and here they stand as one of the biggest names in Jiu-Jitsu today.
We shot an interview with these guys and asked them deep questions about life and Jiu-Jitsu. Joao got teary eyed while speaking about the opportunities and experiences gained through the art. They never expected traveling around the world for simply doing what they love to do. Jiu-Jitsu has given them almost everything in life and they are very thankful for that.
They fight at Feather (141 lbs.) weight but are always willing to fight in the Open weight division. The Miyao Brothers are not afraid of challenges and are willing to push the limit physically as well as mentally. Why? To see where it can take them. Kids like these inspire me to really push Jiu-Jitsu Battle and help upcoming athletes that give up everything in life to become champions.
