I was born in Poznan , Poland in 1981. As a young kid I used to do a little bit of what most kids do if it comes to martial arts ☺ . ( meaning Karate and Kung – Fu ) and watching Jean Claude Van Damme doing his thing ☺.

When I was 19 years old I moved to England. Working hard to make a living and going to the gym to lift some weights. At the age of 28 I started training Taekwondo but it wasn’t until two years later when I had finally found my beloved Jiu Jitsu! ( only took me 30 years to find it – not bad eh ☺ ).

Training hard in Manchester , UK in the gym called Stealth BJJ under my coach at the time Steven Campbell ( CARLOS GRACIE > CARLOS GRACIE JR > STEVE CAMPBELL ).

I received my Purple Belt from Steven Campbell in 2014. Year later I arrived in to New Zealand.

After my humble beginnings to fit in to NZ Jiu Jitsu scene I found Tukaha Jiu Jitsu in 2017.

In 2018 I received my Brown Belt from the head coach of Tukaha Jiu Jitsu Pedro Pacheco Fernandes.
