    I started in 2001 in Paris, France. The martials school where I was had a deal with Alliance jiu jitsu in Brazil, to import a Brazilian BB teacher every year. So Orlandivo Goncalves was my first teacher. Then Charlao Moura replaced him. Then Came the famous Paulo Sergio, third degree black belt from J. Cavalcanti.

    I went to live in Serbia, in 2004 and thank god they had a good BJJ school and a Serbian Black belt teacher student of Fernando Pinduka. I'm currently a three strip blue.

    started grappling in June 2003. local community college wrestling team, and the jujitsu class at my dojo. Last summer I started taking Judo as well, I have taken time off so my training is not as consistent as it should be but I am working hard now, the only problem I have is finding guys my size to roll with.

    been training around 3 1/2 years. With about 1 1/2 years off due to injuries. one stripe blue.
    Still don't really feel like I deserve it.
    Not my performance against other blues. Just I don't seem to have a lot of technical knowledge

    2 years total training, had to take 1 year off due to back problems.

    Don't know what belt I am, but I can hold my own against the blue belts that I go against... (no gi).

    A few months, my main goal is to score a point in a tournament in the novice division. I've been striking for a few years now. I haven't been able to make time to train at a school, I use friends and my grappling dummy to train along with videos. I know that videos aren't the best way to go though.
