Mentor Professor – Robert Drysdale

Robert Drysdale is a 4th degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and professional mixed martial artist and undefeated in MAA.  Born in the United States to a Brazilian mother and American father, he moved to Brazil with his family in 1987 at the age of six.

As a young man, he moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to begin college. While in the United States, following his growing interest in martial arts, he began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Lewis-Perderneiras in 1998 and carried out a submission victory over Marcelo Garcia in 2007. Drysdale also made a successful MMA debut defeating Bastien Huveneers via arm triangle choke.

Beginning in the early 1990s, jiu-jitsu began growing in popularity worldwide and Brazil was quickly becoming the Mecca of jiu-jitsu. Robert returned to Brazil in 2002 to dedicate himself entirely to training and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Over the years he has trained continually, initially with Maromba Club and eventually team Brasa Jiu-Jitsu Club in São Paulo, Brazil.

While training and competing for Brasa Club he received his Black Belt in 2004 from the famed Leo Vieira.

In Brazil, he went on to win multiple national and world titles including the IBJJF world championship as a Black belt in 2005

He has competed and taught in various countries around the world, including Germany, United Kingdom, Denmark, Estonia, Poland, France, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand; while teaching and hosting seminars in cities across the United States.

Most recently he became the 2007 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship – Open Division ADCC, submitting Marcelo Garcia.

In early 2008, he returned to the USA where he trained with former UFC Champion, Randy Couture and former Pride Champion Wanderlei Silva
