Mateusz Szczeciński Biography

Mateusz Szczeciński was born on October 13, 1994, in Koszalin, Poland, where he grew up.

As a child, Mateusz played various sports with football (soccer) being his main focus. This sporting culture was maintained throughout his formative years as he went on to spend high school in a School Sports Club, a space that geared students toward athletic careers. There, Szczeciński competed in many sports, most successful in the 100-meter race.

Traditional sports were not the only activity Mateusz was involved with growing up. Coming from a town with a big combat sports culture, he was quick to find interest in fighting, starting with boxing at 12, and adding jiu-jitsu with coach Sylwester Dziekanowski at Gold Team when he was 13.

Under the instruction of Mr. Dziekanowski, Szczeciński slowly became one of Poland’s hottest prospects, earning his black belt on December 21, 2017. He would later change associations and camps, joining Academia Gorila.
