Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Professor Wanderson Dos Santos started training Martial Arts (Capoeira) at the age of 9, fully dedicating himself to the art in his teens and early adult years.
Upon moving to the U.S. in 2006 Wanderson started studying Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts in Miami, receiving the black belt from World Champion Professor Daniel Valverde and 6th degree Master Ronaldo Delibero.
As a competitor he has fought MMA and has several accomplishments, including: 3x Florida State Champion, 6x NAGA World Champion, 4x Submission Champion at Grapplers Quest, 2x IBJJF Miami Open medalist, 2x Abu Dhabi World Championship medalist, 2x De La Riva Cup Medalist, 2x new breed medalist, Sao Paulo Open Medalist, Copa America Medalist, Nitrous Submission Medalist, AJP Tour medalist, and is a White Lion Promotions, Substars and F2Win veteran.
Wanderson holds a degree in Computer Science, a technical degree in Nutrition, certification of service appreciation by the City of Miami Police Department and is also a Certified Yoga Instructor.
Today he is committed to sharing the benefits of Martial Arts with his students in Miami Beach (aka South Beach or SOBE), giving special attention to teaching self-defense, MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).
In addition to decades of professional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaching experience and certifications, Wanderson is a highly trained Budokon University mobility coach and Skanda yoga certified teacher.
Whether you are a competitive fighter in Maimi Beach, or just getting back into shape after years of sedentary neglect, Wanderson can help you accomplish your fitness, health and nutrition goals with customized, creative workouts sessions in SOBE designed specifically for you.
