Daniel Moraes Biography

Daniel “Moraes” Correira was born on the 18th of August 1981 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Daniel’s first experience with grappling happened at the Iate Clube Jardim Guanabara, when he was 5 years old at the club’s jiu jitsu program.

Royler Gracie and Marcelo Clemente were Moraes’ coaches throughout the course of his jiu jitsu career in Brazil, being awarded his black belt by the pair in 2002.

Once Daniel decided to move from his native Brazil, to the United States following his dream of becoming a professional jiu jitsu coach, he sought out Relson Gracie, becoming a Relson Gracie Academy affiliate.

Daniel also competed in mixed martial arts (MMA), having a very positive run from 2006 to 2008 where he picked up a submission win over UFC veteran Matt Brown.
