How old are you?

Tell us a bit about your BJJ history.
 I spend 10 years of my life training capoeira, since I was a kid in Brazil  , and the transition to BJJ was smoth and having the capoeira background allowed me to develop in BJJ much faster , I have started training BJJ with Cesar Lima and Max Lima around 7 years ago.

Why did you stick with BJJ?
 Mostly I decided to change martial arts because I needed a new challenge , and having tried BJJ I fell in love with sport straight away, and the people I train with became a huge part of my life, like a family away from Brazil.

And you chose to be associated with Grab and Pull because….?
 Grab and pull is such a great brand due to the quality of GI’s and clothing that it provides and the fitting of the their stuff suit me much more then other brands, also I have a lot of respect to the ower of the brand.

One sentence that sums up your approach to life and sport: 
If it is important you make it happens, if it does not you make excuses.

One interesting fact that no one would know about you:
 I am a very good forro dancer which is a Brazilian type of dance.
