Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 5th 2008
56 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 6, 2008 MB Inner-West Weekly Sport Adam martials his life SHIREEN KHALIL JUNIOR SPORTS STAR Brazilian jiu jitsu champion Adam Assuncao is a Junior Sports Star nominee. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP211980 SINCE Adam Assuncao started martial arts, his love for the sport kept growing and now he ''just can't live without it''. At 11 years of age Adam's wres- tling talent was discovered by his uncle who put him straight into Brazilian jiu jitsu and now, at age 15, Adam's got the attitude, the confidence and the skills under one of his many championship belts. ''When I was younger I used to wrestle anyone I could get my hands on, then my uncle put me into jiu jitsu and I just started getting better and better,'' Adam said. After Adam, of Croydon Park, won his first fight, the 2005 NSW Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation Cup, he realised what he wanted to do with his life. ''It showed me my future and what I want to be doing when I'm older with my life,'' he said. Adam maintained his winning streak through to 2008 when he secured another six titles, boost- ing his confidence. ''In the under-16s Machado Asia Pacific Championships I went against a guy from Perth and thought he was going to beat me because his look was tougher than me, then we went to the mat and I turned out to be the winner,'' Adam said. ''I realised I was the better one there.'' Adam admitted at the start of his Brazilian jiu jitsu career he got ''freaked out''. ''The bigger guys freaked me out and it gets difficult at times but it's the best thing you can do.'' Adam would like to one day hop into the ring with Carlos Machado, former world master champion in Brazilian jiu jitsu, because ''he is small and I'm small and he uses the other person's weight against them and I know he'd show me some good tips''. Adam trains at Concord's SinosicPerosh Martial Arts three times a week for two hours and cannot see himself doing anything else. ''I just can't live without it. I want it to be my life,'' he said.
