I received my 4th degree BJJ Black Belt from my coach Carlos Machado. Carlos presented it to me at the end of his BJJ seminar which he ran at my martial arts school on 17th April. It is a great honour to receive this rank and to also receive it from Carlos Machado. It was even more special receiving it in front of 50 of my students.
I love BJJ and I am even more passionate about it now than when I first started back in 1996. I recently retired from MMA fighting. My goal now is to get better every day and pass on what I know to all of my students and make them achieve their goals!
