Certified Instructor

Davi Garritano

My name is Davi Garritano. I was born in May 6th,1988 at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - where I've lived ever since. Since childhood I've been fond of martial arts and I've already tried many styles, such as "Capoeira", "Jiu-Jitsu", "Krav Maga" and "Tae Kwon Do".

When I was fifteen years old (2003) I started to learn "Tai Chi Chuan" and some Forms of "Shaolin", "Ba Gua" and "Hsing I" with Instructor Lino Py. After few years I began learning Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan with Center Director Marcio Lacerda (Lino Py's Sifu), with whom I practice till today.

I attended on the first time to a Grand-Master Yang Jun's seminar at 2008, and since then I've been dedicating more and more to practice and spread the Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan. Attending on his seminars in Brazil annually ever since, and also to some Center Director's Seminars and Special Trainings (Claudio Mingarini, Giuseppe Turturo, Sergio Arione, Angela Soci and Roque Severino).

From 2011 to 2014 I have also practiced Ving Tsun at Moy Yat Ving Tsun Martial Intelligence with Sifu Ricardo Queiroz (Leo Imamuras's Disciple).

During these years I've also graduated at Psychology (2006 - 2010 at PUC-Rio) and Acupuncture (2014 - 2016 at ASBAMTHO).

I like to study and practice traditional North American Indian Culture, Chinese Culture, Meditation and different Ways of thinking the human mind and the mysteries of the universe.

I work with martial arts since I was 17 years old and I love what I do.
