I began training martial arts over 24 years ago in my home town of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and have since gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, training and competing all over the world.
I was under Ademir Da Costa in Brazil, (considered one of the best fighters of his time.) where I became one of his most successful pupils. I have belonged to important fight teams throughout my competitive career such as kyokushin kai kan in Japan, where I spent 6 months training and living with the world champion Tsukamoto Norichika. Chute Boxe, the home of fighters such as Wanderlie Silva, Anderson Silva, and Shogun. Team Moises Gibi Batista, three times Muay Thai world champion, and Macaco gold team, one of the first and most renowned Vale Tudo fighters in Brazil. In addition I have trained in Mike’s Gym in Holland, and Super Pro Samui Gym, in Thailand.
Along side my career as a fighter I have a passion for teaching, Starting when I was only 15 years old giving classes in my first Kyokushin Dojo, upon achieving my brown belt. In 2002 I obtained my Bsc honours degree in physical education furthering my knowledge of all aspects of health and fitness. I have since gained 19 years of experience within this industry, teaching in a range of places, from underground fighter gyms to top commercial establishments. Guiding, coaching, testing and motivating a complete spectrum of people to exercise in a conscious and healthy way, and achieve whatever they want.
I have extensive experience and knowledge of both the commercial and competitive sides of the fitness and health industry. Working with a complete range of clients including, women, children, senior citizens, professional fighters, body builders, and those recovering from substance abuse. Having trained and competed so much in my life only strengthens my professional capacity and ability to deliver my clients and students the best possible results. I believe everyone can achieve their goals, and it is a passion for me to help people on their way to doing this.
Since arriving in England 3 years ago, I have furthered all sides of my career, having had and won three fights, gained two years experience running a fighter gym, and gaining an extensive range of personal clients.
