Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Coach

I’ve been doing jiu-jitsu since 2016, my first contact was with my uncle who introduced me to this martial art.

I come from a family of martial artist.  I started martial arts at the age of 4 with Judo then karate (full contact) at the age of 6. I became part of the Brazilian national team in karate at age 9 and fought for Brazil until I was 27, winning many individual national and international titles, as well as as a team representing Brazil.  In my teens I started training boxing and in 1998 I started BJJ. On my 20s I also trained Muay Thai, wrestling, kickboxing and Judo. Got into MMA and fought in professional MMA for a few years.  With periods off with injuries and surgery, I finally got my black belt in BJJ last year. I have a 3rd Dan black belt in karate and I am a BJJ back belt.

 

I have taught many self-defence courses in Holland, India, UK, Sweden and Brazil.
