Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt

Vitor has been involved in sports since the age of five. His first experience in the Martial Arts arena was at nine when he began training Karate in which he graduated to a green belt. A few years later Vitor joined a Judo club in Rio de Janeiro Brazil where he had his first taste of grappling.

In 2013 he started to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under master Douglas Santos where he obtained his Blue Belt. Vitor moved on to Tu Kaha in early 2015, under Master Pedro Fernandes, where he stills trains every week.

In 2017 Vitor became a frequent face at Coast Academy BJJ and is currently coaching the ‘Earlybird BJJ’ morning classes every Tuesday and Thursday from 6am.

Vitor recently competed at the Pan Pacific Jiu-Jitsu Gi and No-Gi in 2017 and 2018 where he placed as a Medallist.

Outside of Jiu-Jitsu, Vitor works in the Sales industry and enjoys taking his caravan on excursions to the bays with his partner, two young daughters and dog Milo. Vitor’s love of sports isn’t just confined to the mats, he’s also a keen snowboarder and surfer!
