Professor Dennis lima

Edenilson Roberto Siqueira de Lima ”Dennis” is a 4th degree blackbelt. He started training Jiu-Jitsu in 1997 in Maringa, PR with Professor Renato Tavares of BTT. Two years later, with the help of Dennis and other students, Rodrigo Garcia ‘Feijao’ arrived in Maringa.

Feijao brought with him one of the main Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu flagships ‘Nova Uniao’. Dennis left BTT, migrated to Nova Uniao and started to stand out as an athlete. He won important titles in Parana and Brazil. With the titles came respect. Still as a purple belt, he became a teacher in 2003. In December 2007, he earned from the hands of Feijao the sought-after black belt, an achievement of few. Today, with his own team (Dennis Jiu-Jitsu Club) and in partnership with Professor Bruno Bastos (Lead BJJ Texas), he is responsible for the high-level preparation of athletes of CTM (Maringa Training Center) one of the largest competition teams in southern Brazil with champion athletes in top competitions around the world. Dennis still competes, but his main focus is on training and producing athletic talent.
