I’ve been teaching BJJ class as a monitor since I was a blue belt (10 years ago), just to help my Sensei.

When I got the Brown Belt, I started to teach BJJ for kids as a volunteer in a Non-Profits Organization.

The Grand Master gave me a nickname, which follows me until these days, it is AMARELINHO, and it means “Little Yellow Boy”.
