The latest guest is on of the major stars of BJJ, and one of the most loved: Demian Maia!

Demian Maia  is a Brazilian mixed martial artist and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. He currently fights as a welterweight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship. As of May 20, 2017, he is #1 in the official UFC welterweight rankings. Maia is regarded as one of the greatest grapplers in MMA history.

By age nineteen, Maia was introduced to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by his cousin. After four years and seven months, Demian received his black belt. Demian Maia finished college and graduated with a degree in Journalism. He is currently a fourth degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has won several major tournaments under Team Brasa.

He won the 77–87 kg weight division at the 2007 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship, defeating Yushin Okami, Rafael Lovato, and Tarsis Humphres before armbarring Flavio Almeida in the finals.

Maia’s grappling prowess is so highly regarded among MMA fighters that noted heavyweight submission artist and fellow BJJ black belt Frank Mir hired him as his head jiu-jitsu coach prior to his UFC 100 title fight with Brock Lesnar. Mir credits Maia with bringing Mir’s jiu-jitsu skills to different levels, saying “I thought I was actually good at it until I started rolling with him.”

Maia has also defeated top-ranked UFC middleweight and multiple-time Mundial champion Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza,  as well as former UFC heavyweight title challenger and Mundial champion Gabriel Gonzaga twice in grappling competition.

Demian Maia will be conducting a seminar in Switzerland at Zurich Frota Academy /Limited places.
