I started training Jiu-Jitsu on 1996 at the Clube de Jiu-Jitsu Pitbull with Master Adilson Lima a.k.a "Bitta".
I was 4 years without being able to train due an accident that I suffered and caused a serious fracture in my arm. I was able to recover and win an important title in 2009 (IBJJF International Master & Senior), winning 2 very tough guys (Gracie Barra RJ and Ryan Gracie SP).
