    Diario de Noticias (RJ) 7-9-1930 p. 23
    large article about new Jiu-jitsu school opening with direction of Donato Pires dos Reis. Several pictures of Donato Pires dos Reis demonstrating jiu-jitsu.
    Even though the name was "Academia de jiu-jitsu" they also offered to teach capoeira and boxing.
    The paper stated that Donato Pires dos Reis had learned his art from Japanese Masters.
    He was also described as former instructor of police in Belo Horizonte.

    All three examples were pinced form excellent book (both paper and e-book format) of
    "Choque: The Untold Story of Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil 1856-1949 (Volume 1)" By Pedreira, Roberto, GTR Publications, 2014, 744p, PB, ISBN13 9781491226360
