About "Caverinha"

I started my training 30 years ago with Jean Jacques Machado and Master Carlos Gracie Jr. I remember I trained every day, very hard, for my whole life. In my life I’ve earned over 150 medals and trophies throughout various competitions. Every medal and trophy I get is a diamond for me! I really love fighting; Even now I wish I had more time to fight. My life is busy now because I have a family “a wife and daughter” I have to take care my association and I teach. Last year I attended some tournaments and I had an awesome results; Rio Fall 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I competed Gi and NoGi I won one gold and one silver medal. American Nationals 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada I competed Gi and no Gi and I got Gold medals in both. World Master 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada and I got third place.

I have all support of my business partner Ryno Irwin, my sponsor Roman Amaguin and my whole team. I hope the Jiu-Jitsu keeps growing in Hawaii and Caveirinha Jiu-Jitsu Family team will become the biggest in Hawaii, that’s my dream. I work hard every day towards this dream. I love people who love Jiu-Jitsu and I hope that that I’ve changed a little bit the fight scene here in Hawaii. I have 200 black belt students, that a record for me because I’m 38 years old. I have affiliates in Europe, Brazil, California and here in Hawaii. I remember 19 years ago I stared to teach in Belo Horizonte, Brazil and 6 years ago I had a great opportunity to come with my family to Hawaii. I’m glad to live here and stay with my CJJF ohana. I train, fight and work for my team and students. Mission given, mission accomplished!

Mahalo & God Bless!
