My private classes have helped beginners, recreational practitioners and competitors alike.

Why learn from me?

1. Experience as a competitor
As a competitor I've travelled the world to compete. I've made a name for myself in the European and Brazilian circuits. I've won the IBJJF nogi European and nogi Brazilian championships.

In the gi I've medalled at the IBJJF Europeans. In grappling I've won Grappling Industries- and NAGA elite categories.


2. Experience as a coach

I've been teaching classes since 2015 at Erasmus BJJ. SInce 2018 I've been an instructor at The House Fight Company, one of Brazil's best gyms. My students have competed and won some of the biggest tournaments in the country, including AJP Almere, ADCC Netherlands and Grappling Industries.


3. Experience teaching private classes
I'm one of the few people in the Netherlands making a living of jiu jitsu, and I'm probably the only coach that is focused mainly on teaching private classes. That means I have countless of hours of experience teaching one-on-one classes.

Daniel has a very systematic approach which gave me insight in certain area’s of improvement. On top of that he utilized his competition experience to help me find the right strategy.

Daniel is a highly succeeded competitor and a very technical instructor who is always on top of the latest BJJ developments. Learning directly from the source with several periods spent in Brazil, Daniel brings those technical details that really make the difference and help to improve your game. Either if you’re a new in the sport or already more advanced if you’re serious about learning BJJ, Daniel’s coaching will bring your game to a different level!


History teacher &
BJJ blue belt

Having been a regular student of Daniel's, I had seen first hand the level of detail he puts into his teaching. However, after taking a few privates, I was even more blown away by not only his attention to detail, but his patience in helping me solve any issues that I had.

I travel often and divide my time between Rotterdam and Santos. That means my time to teach privates is limited. I'm currently in the Netherlands. If you don't live there I also offer online privates.
