Tainah Fernandes
When I was only 14, I looked for an academy to train jiu-jitsu. On my first day, the person I most admired as a person as well as an athlete, was Marcello.

Today, I am 20 and during these 6 years of training I have been three times the Brazilian champion and four times a state champion (Rio de Janeiro). Besides those titles, I have won 33 gold medals and taken part in 33 championships. During these years, I can say that Marcello was the guy who mostly influenced my career in a positive way, and most of the jiu-jitsu I know, I own to my friend Marcello C. Monteiro and I know, I can count on him to learn more!
