Tiago Santa Ritta

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt (2nd Degree) & National Champion

Professor Tiago Santa Ritta started his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey in Brazil over 17 years ago. He has dedicated a large portion of his life to it since, and has gone on to teach throughout Brazil, Queenstown and Wellington before arriving at CORE MMA in Hamilton.

Tiago has a strong competition record, but places a high value to have strong fundamentals and a real self-defence capability.

He is also a qualified Sky-Diving & Scuba Diving instructor and believes in having a well-balanced, active lifestyle. His passion and enthusiasm for his work shines through in his classes.

Tiago is also available for Private Lessons, which can be booked through the CORE MMA Members App.
