1)  What do you consider your worst BJJ moment, and why? 

Not being able to train after a motorcycle accident where I broke my leg, I was out for 3 months. Although I still attended to class but just on the sidelines.

2)  What’s an “AHA!” moment you’ve had in your journey?

Walking for the first time I compete at the IBJJF Worlds, I got to see all my BJJ heroes MG, Galvao, Roger Gracie, Renato Tavares Etc. It was super an awesome experience!

3)  What’s the best jiu-jitsu advice you’ve ever received?

Play hard but smart & position before submission!

4)  What is one habit you have that you believe has contributed to your success?

Never quitting, many times I have lost, got discouraged, doubted my skills. The secret is to try to be better than yesterday. One step at a time.

5)  How do you mentally and physically prepare for competition? 

I don't like to think about the competition, I like to believe in my skills -- competition only access (sic) how I do next to others, my true competition is with myself. Physically I normally train 3 to 4 hours a day. Don't do conditioning just BJJ.

6)  Who is your favorite superhero?

I'm not sure if Goku is a superhero but I'm sure he can kick Spiderman, Superman & Ironman's butts any day!
