EXPERIENCE AS TRAINER
BJJ instructor since 2008

STATEMENT
BJJ is a sport that should be trained by many more. Not
necessarily because of techniques (throws and submissions), but because BJJ creates a solid foundation for body awareness and motor activity which may increase anyone’s quality of life. In the short time that I got the chance to teach students, I realized, that many people have problems with their body awareness. Training BJJ, you learn to know your own body automatically and along the way; each training physically makes you feel a little better.

EXPERIENCE AS TRAINER
I have been training a lot of many different styles.

STATEMENT
After so many years of BJJ I see the Frota Team become bigger and bigger. In my opinion our master Augusto an all the students make a realy good job. I have learn that loyalty is much more than only be with a team. It’s about respect and be respected… Maybe Empathy would be the right word for that. So i try to give my classes as good as I have learned from my master.
