To whom it may concern
Hi my name is Bruno Paulista, I am a jiujitsu fighter and I also coach here at Gracie Barra, Santa Anna/California-USA. I am writing this letter to inform about Frederico Bizam Blum, a coleague of mine and also recognized elite jiujitsu fighter and coach. Throught the years he has fought in many tournaments around Brasil and America; that has made him the great fighter he is today. After a sucessfull career in Brasil as a fighter he has moved to America and decided not only to keep fighting but he started coaching the sport. He has earned his black belt and has helped many others to conquer their belt as well. He fought and coached between Florida and California for 5 years, and many people around here are thankfull for everything he has taught them. I have testify all his hard work and determination towards the sport and I honestly believe he will be more or just as sucessfull in Australia, as he was here in California.

Marcio was an active child and it was time to get to know other sports like soccer, handball, basketball, and swimming among others before starting his victorious career in jiu-jitsu. Marcio lived for a few years at his grandfathers home, and it was then that an old friend took him to a jiu-jitsu academy for the very first time. From that moment on he decided he wanted to be a black belt. Unfortunately, back home there was no jiu-jitsu academy nearby, so he had to train judo for a while.
