Matt Waterhouse started in martial arts at a young age, dabbling in many different styles before finding his notch in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Matt found his legendary instructor, Eduardo "Dudu" Barros, by chance holding classes at a tai-chi school. Matt soon focused all of his time to Dudu’s academy and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Matt quickly rose through the ranks of BJJ becoming Dudu’s first ever student to achieve the rank of black belt.
At 5'10" and 150 lbs, Matt is a testament to the fact that BJJ is about technique and leverage rather then size and strength.
