Anthony Perosh is a 4th Degree Black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Anthony is a BJJ and UFC Champion from NSW in Australia, he started training martial arts through Kempo, a martial art he practiced for several years reaching the rank of brown belt; he also practiced Kickboxing (holding a black t-shirt in this sport). It was at his Kempo gym that Anthony Perosh first joined a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu club in March 1995. Anthony Perosh spent 3 years in the United States training directly with one of the best coaches in the world, Carlos Machado. He returned to his homeland and started teaching BJJ at the old Kempo gym where it all had started, giving classes once per week. He continued to visit his master in America regularly and moved his coaching activities to a church hall where he could train students 3 times per week before he settled into a full-time academy in 2002 (he later opened another academy under his name, having generated hundreds of BJJ students in Australia). In 2003 “The Hippo” launched himself into MMA, in fact, 2003 was a very important year for Perosh’s career as not only did he fight (and win) on the “Spartan Reality Fight” MMA tournament (winning all three fights in one night), but he was also awarded his black belt by Carlos Machado. He established himself as one of the best Australian MMA fighters very rapidly and on July 2006 Anthony premiered on the biggest mixed martial arts stage in the world, the UFC. Professor Anthony Perosh is a respected martial artist and coach who has not only dedicated his life to his discipline but also the students he serves. More info?
