Davi Mattos | PROFESSOR
Professor Davi Mattos was born and raised in Fortaleza, Brazil, where he has been involved in sports his whole life. Davi took up Jiu Jitsu in 2013 at Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu Fortaleza. The passion for the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was instantaneous and since then he has been dedicated many hours to improve mind and body to achieve excellence as a Martial Artist. Davi attained his brown belt from the Jiu Jitsu legend and world champion Fredson Alves, in 2016. Since then he has moved to Australia and during this time has the privilege to travel, train and learn from some of the Jiu Jitsu greats: Saulo and Xande Ribeiro.
Davi believes that Jiu Jitsu has the power to change people’s lives and that it brings out the best in each and every person. He prides himself on building a school that is accessible for everyone, no matter their age, ability or goals. “This art will give confidence in yourself to be a champion not only on the mats, but in your life!”.
ALIREZA RAB | COACH
Ali was decided to take up martial arts at the age of 13, after he was bring bullied in middle school on a daily basis. At the time he took up Taekwando as his primary discipline but after 4.5 years of training he couldn’t find the fulfilment he was looking for. After migrating to Australia, he met a friend at University who was practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Out of curiosity, Ali started the noble art under professor Davi Mattos on 2017 and was instantly hooked. He believes “ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is where martial arts meet philosophy and through this humbling experience, people get to know their true colours which ultimately helps them to unlock their full potential as a human being. It’s a platform to help others to feel fulfilled which was something I’ve been looking for my whole life”
