My name is Matheus Teixeira Queiroz. I am from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. I started Jiu-Jitsu when I was 5 years old. I started because my family already has a story in the sport. My father is a multiple time world champion, and my grandfather is also a black belt. They signed me up to see if I liked it, and I did. My goal in this sport is to be a future Black Belt World Champion. I want to make a difference, not just be one more in the sport. I want to be the best in the world and also to have a better and healthier lifestyle. I currently go to school in Murray, UT.
