I’m from Brazil, city of Coaraci Bahia.
Born in December 3, 1983.
I start training Jiu jitsu because I always was in Love with martial arts, first time I heard about Jiu Jitsu was when I saw the MMA Show called (Pride) I saw the first time Rodrigo Minotauro submitting this huge guy Bob Sappy 70 pounds Heavier and I start to see more about Gracie family Watching Royce Gracie win the first UFC, showing the world that the Jiu jitsu was the most effective martial arts in the world, so right the way I followed in love with this martial art Jiu jitsu.
Even though I wanted to start Jiu jitsu, my home town didn’t have it.
I trained Judô first. I did it for 2 years before I had my first Jiu Jitsu class with Professor Wilson Reis, former UFC fighter.
I teach Jiu Jitsu because I Love it I feel like I’m helping people be better human beings I feel blessed do what I do because I Love it for me is I’m leaving my dream be able to make my life teaching Jiu jitsu building confidence in people and building strong community.
