Rodrigo Pinto Flores started martial arts in 1991, practicing Full Contact with coach Aimoré Goulart. He received his black belt in 1997 and began to teach. He found an interest in Tae-Kwon Do and practiced with the coaches InKyu Lee and Alexandre Gomes. In 2015 he received a 1st Dan black belt under Chang Moo Kwan - World Tae-Kwon Do. In 2016 he received his 2nd Dan black belt.
In 2000, feeling the need to improve his skill-set, a friend introduced him to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. What was supposed to be a brief encounter became a life long passion. In 2012, with 12 years of training, he received his black belt in Jiu Jitsu. Feeling grateful for the opportunity he started to coach in a social project for less fortunate children.
Looking forward, June 2018 he'll receive his second degree black belt under Fernando Paradeda of Drill BJJ.
