After a year of him finishing his last year at the University of Texas and her finishing her last year of college in Brasil, they relocated to São Paulo. São Paulo is where his Jiu Jitsu experience began, under Mestre Márcio Guimarães in 2006, a black belt under Grande Mestre Flavio Behring. From  Márcio’s guidance and training he earned his blue belt.
