Fernando Maccachero

Rafael Negao Brazilian Top Team Phuket

That is it head to Bkk my friends are ready to give theyr blood and represent Tiger Muay Thai & MMA Training Camp next Saturday.
Professor Fernando Maccachero is also going to Bangkok with students for this competition.
I wish you guys all the best and u better bring me medals!!!

My name is Oscar Mendoza. I’m a 4th degree white belt under Ray Elbe. My background is American Wrestling where I competed up through high school level. I started BJJ back in London because I was looking for a way to stay fit and the gym got boring. Originally I took up TJJ (Japanese Traditional Jiu Jitsu) under Seymour Yang (also known as Meerkatsu in the Jiu Jitsu world). I liked learning the self defense, but in TJJ there was no real sparring. One session, Seymour invited a BJJ black belt by the name of Nicholas Brooks to the club. We did a round of sparring and he triangled me 3x. I was HOOKED!!!

I went to 1 session at Nick’s club in Mill Hill, but it was quite far from where I was living at the time. So I found a closer club and met Eddie Kone where I did about 5 sessions.

About 3 years ago I moved to Thailand. After getting settled down, I met Jon Bellagamba a purple belt on the island and I trained with him for a bit. This is where my BJJ bug got worse. When Jon got hurt, I found myself at Tiger Muay Thai. At Tiger, I met Ray Elbe and Wiktor Svensson (his purple belt). Pretty much most of my jits, I credit to Wiktor whose been my main teacher for a year and a half.

Training under Wiktor and my training partners (like Kitty Teppo, Alex Schild, Jesper Freyschuss, Chris Hines) allowed me to capture Silver in gi and Gold in no gi last April in my first BJJ tournament, the Pan Asians, in Manilla April 2012.

Now BJJ is IN MY BLOOD. I try and do 2/3 sessions a week. If you know me on Facebook, my status often reads: time for my favorite part of the day…jits time!!! Or going to my happy place…@Tiger Muay Thai. I’ve met so many AWESOME people through BJJ. And now I’ve had the honor of introducing BJJ to some of my friends and they have picked up the BJJ bug. OSS!!!

I’ve been training hard over the last month with new and AWESOME BJJ coach at Tiger, Fernando Maccachero (4th degree black belt) in no gi. Wiktor is still my main instructor and who I credit for my BJJ and MMA experience (oh yeah…I did a cage fight as well…more on that later). Just recently I started rolling gi with Olavo Abreu (3rd degree black belt) at Phuket Top Team. And you know what? I LOVE PAJAMAS!!! BJJ in a gi…SOOOO technical!!!

So this weekend is the Bangkok Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Open 2012, where I’m competing in Masters (yes, I’m that old) division for gi and no gi. I’ve also decided to give the no gi Absolute a try. I think I’m in better shape than when I won the Pan Asians, so I should do fine.

Anyways, thanks for listening to my story so far and I’ll keep you updated on how I do. OSSS!!!!

I wish for my mates good lucky. I hope they can do a good fights and win their fights.
Will be a fucking good show for sure Felipe and Shannon are very motived to fight One FC, is a new promotion in south Asia but getting bigger.
