      Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Black Belt

      I have always been passionate about sports and martial arts. From four to ten-years-old, I dedicated myself to Taekwondo, and earned my Red Belt/Black Tip. After that, I practiced Capoeira for one year with Muzenza Capoeira Group in Brazil and was awarded with the first string team.

      In March 2006, I moved to Rio and started studying Jiu Jitsu at the Carlson Gracie Academy and have been practicing ever since, taking part in many competitions and championships. After obtaining my Black Belt from Ari Galo in November of 2012, I began to teach Jiu Jitsu.
