BROZ JIU JITSU was created by Professor Fabricio De Mendonca in 2010. Our first school was in a small shed at Clontarf, QLD. We had few moves before settle our feet in Redcliffe.
Our creator and Head Coach FABRICIO De MENDONCA (Fab) was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Fab was twenty ono when he started training Jiu Jitsu and loved the martial art from the beginning. His first instructor was the 6th Degree Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Totila Jordan Neto “Pitoco” at the Infight Jiu-Jitsu Academy.
After two years living and studying in the USA, Fab returned to Brazil and decided to join the Infight Jiu-Jitsu Team again now under instructor – Master Paulo Nardy. At Infght Jiu-Jitsu, Fabricio had the chance to train with some of the best instructors and fighters in Brazil.
Fabricio moved to Australia in 2007 where he met and joined the Brazilian Top Team Black Belt 3rd Degree – Gustavo “Bomba” Toledo. Fabricio was awarded his Black Belt in 2011 and since then he has been improving his techniques and teaching a fine Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. As an instructor he has led his team to many victories in Grappling tournaments in Australia.
Fabricio Mendonca: "Everything I learned in Jiu-Jitsu was revolved around competing, I always went for the submission against my opponents. Today, I feel a great sense of accomplishment not only as a competitor but also as an instructor. I have been learning a lot through teaching because I am seeing things from a different perspective. I love teaching Jiu-Jitsu and I try to make my students feel like they can accomplish anything they want as long as they work hard for it."
