In 2008, my dad brought me and my brother to the academy and we started training together. I was 7 years old at that time.

What I love the most about Jiu Jitsu is that Jiu Jitsu is a family sport. There’s a lot of people training Jiu Jitsu with their family such as parents, children, brothers and sisters. And I think it is rarely seen in any other sport. I also have been training with my brother and dad since I started Jiu Jitsu.

My biggest accomplishment is winning Pan Ams Title in the purple belt and brown belt.

Fun fact: I have an experience working at sushi restaurant in Japan and I can make sushi!
