Professor Pedro Dornelles

I’m originally from Porto Alegre, Brazil. I have been training brazilian jiu jitsu since I was 14 years old. In 2005 when I was 21 years old I came over to Sydney to learn the english language. After one year I was in love with this country and decided to live in Northern Beaches. I tried so many different kind of jobs and businesses along my journey until the day that I realised I want to do what I love to do in life teaching brazilian jiu jitsu. Since then I have been living a dream to be able to teach this amazing gentle art and the most important to be working with kids and helping them developing a character for life.

My vision is to change people’s life but it goes beyond from whatever concept you might have about brazilian Jiu jitsu. My conception about brazilian jiu jitsu is the life style it will give you. My focus is to give people a chance to become a better person in life, a better husband, a better wife, a better friend, to respect and to learn to be respected therefore by training brazilian jiu jitsu you may not see it but one day you will look back and realise how much brazilian jiu jitsu changed your life not just about learning self defence techniques but about understanding what is behind everyday training.

I’m very glad to be a black belt under my Professor Marcelo Rezende (Black Belt under Master Carlos Gracie Jr)  and to be part of the biggest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Family in the world Gracie Barra.
