Rank: Black Belt under Vicente 'VC' Cavalcanti
Trains At: Southside Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - Gold Coast
Where it all began...
I started BJJ in 2004 in Brazil and my hometown team that was back in the day under TT Team (Teles and Terere Team) that later on became an affiliate of Alliance Jiu Jitsu team. In 2005 I got my blue belt but unfortunately had to stop training due studies and work. Got back into training around 2009 with no desire to ever stop again getting my purple belt in 2012. In 2014 just before moving to Australia I was awarded my brown belt. Once here I started training under my old friend Vicente Cavalcanti that I was honored to be promoted to one of his Black Belts in mid 2016. I've been coaching and training at Southside BJJ since then.
