Professor Ricardo

Siege MMA is sending two of our students to train with Proffesor Ricardo Zanelato in Brazil.  I have been lucky enough to train under Ricardo for a year of my Jiu Jitsu career.  He was a large influence on getting me from the blue to purple belt level.  Siege Purple Belt Sean Downie and Blue Belt Logan Jewell are traveling to Brazil to train with Ricardo in his home gym in the city of Torres, which is located in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.  They are also going to travel with Ricardo around Brazil training as they go.  Sean is going for two weeks and Logan for over a month.  I am very excited for both of them.  They are still raising money to cover their expenses, so if you want to help them out on this great life adventure go buy a raffle ticket from either Siege MMA or Arizona Fight Wear in Peoria.

A little background on Ricardo (Ricardio) Zanelato, he is one stripe Black Belt under Master Moises Muradi and Professor Raul Vieira.   As one of Raul’s best black belt instructors, Ricardo has his own Lotus Club Academy in Torres where he has coached many Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champions. Ricardo and his academy have a very good reputation in Brazil and athletes from all over come to his academy to train. Ricardo holds several Jiu-Jitsu Championships which include; Bi-State Champion of Jiu-Jitsu, Garopaba Summer Champion of Jiu-Jitsu and Marra Senki Cup Champion. Ricardo also earned his degree in physical education from the University of Criciuma.
