About Daniel Lima

Major Titles:

  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu National Champion
  • North American Submimission Wrestling National Champion
  • X.F.C Australia Champion

Daniel Lima was born on the 28th of December 1980, in Brasilia, Brazil. Growing up, he always had an interest in Martial Arts, especially the native martial arts of Brazil; Capoeira and Jiu Jitsu. At the age of 15, Daniel decided to focus all his energy into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Daniel soon made a name for himself as a strong competitor, winning competitions and titles all over the world in both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. These titles include winning the National title in Brazil, the North American Grappling Association title in the United States and the XFC mixed martial arts title in Australia. Daniel has also competed in Japan, New Zealand and the Philippines, and has been ranked number two in the world by the Shooto Association which is the oldest mixed martial arts association in the world.

However it is Daniel’s teaching ability that has truly grown his reputation. Together in Brazil, he and Marcio Bittencourt combined their teams to form Fight Club Jiu-Jitsu, which became one of the strongest teams in Bahia, Brazil. From there, Marcio continued to grow and strengthen the team in Brazil while Daniel took Fight Club Jiu-Jitsu around the world. He taught in the USA, New Zealand and then finally Australia in 2003. Daniel is now an Australian citizen and has expanded Fight Club Jiu-Jitsu into a diverse and fast growing organisation in various locations throughout his new home of Australia. Daniel has lead Fight Club Jiu-Jitsu to win many championships, including producing world champions of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and international level mixed martial arts fighters.
