I started Jiu Jitsu almost 2 years ago. Met professor Cristiano Xavier on May 5th 2017 and started training June 5th 2017. Other than breaks where the academy has been closed I’ve trained pretty consistently. Having a strong background in athletics but none in martial arts, I was looking for a new hobby and a means to just feel healthier both mentally and physically. Jiu jitsu has been nothing short than amazing for both aspects and now looking to compete more like I have in my past.
