This is one seminar that you do not want to miss! Daniel is regarded as one of the best Jiu-Jitsu players and coaches in the world and has worked with elite fighters such as Anderson “The Spider” Silva and Antonio “Minotauro” Nogueira. Daniel is both a BJJ and Judo Black Belt, a World No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu Champion, ADCC veteran and multiple Grapplers Quest Superfight Champion.
Daniel became a popular figure in the MMA world after being selected by “Minotauro” as the grappling coach for Team Noueira on the 8th season of the hit TV show, The Ultimate Fighter. During the filming of the show, Daniel ended up exchanging harsh words with one of the top contestants, Jiu-Jitsu champion Vinny Magalhaes. The rivalry ended up being settled with a Jiu-Jitsu match (Grapplers Quest UFC Fan Expo Super Fight), where Daniel defeated Magalhaes despite giving up close to 30 lbs and having very little time to prepare.
