How have you progressed so quickly, what/who do you credit your success to?

I have been doing jiu-jitsu a long time, and all the years of jiu-jitsu have given me the knowledge to be efficient with my time and understand how to break down and learn new techniques.

I credit my success to my Professor Cobrinha. 

What's playing in your headphones before you compete?

I generally don’t listen to music. Every now and then I will, but I like to spend my time visualizing the match. 

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?

When you’re competing, don’t put pressure on yourself. Compete as if you have an empty glass, and you’re trying to fill it up. As opposed to competing with a full glass, that you’re trying not to spill. 

What's one concept during training that everyone should understand?

Train to learn, not to win.

What is your goal for 2020?

My goal is to Grand Slam at the four IBJJF Majors this year. 

What is your ultimate goal in the sport?

My goal is to be a multiple-time World Champion. 

What do you hope to be known for after you retire?

I want to be an example that anyone can reach the highest level of jiu-jitsu. 

What do you love about jiu-jitsu?

I love the never-ending learning process. I have been doing jiu-jitsu for over 15 years and I’m learning more now as a black than ever before. Each year I’m progressing even quicker because my understanding of the game is always evolving.
