Now I can say Jiu-Jitsu is the centre of my life. I refer to all situations through the lessons I learned through Jiu-Jitsu. It is my sport, my therapy and where I made my best friends. I couldn't live without Jiu-Jitsu in my life!
"Reality is created by the mind. We can change our reality by changing our mind."
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, sports, camping and self-education through podcasts and books.
I had an early start with sports in my life, starting with swimming when I was 1 year old, and Judo when I was 6 years old, but I had to stop as I moved suburbs.
When I was 20, a friend invited me to try Jiu-Jitsu and fell in love with it.
After a long break, and moving to Australia, I realised there was a Gracie Barra near where I lived.
10 years later, and I'm training under Prof. Marcelo Rezende and following his path to become the guidance and Jiu-Jitsu teacher he has been for me. This is my dream, and my purpose is to help people through Jiu-Jitsu.
Rytz started practicing the art of Grappling in Philippines in late 2008 under Ken Noda and Manny Jimenez, 2 of the top Coaches/competitors in the Philippines. Immediately falling in love with the gentle art, Rytz has since dedicated himself to the study of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling arts, earning the rank of Purple Belt under PROFESSOR PEDRO RODRIGUES in 2016.
Inherently competitive, Rytz is proud to be one of the most active and experienced competitors in Gracie Barra Wollongong.
Catch Rytz every Wednesday teaching Adult classes.
