13 years ago, Rickson Gracie gave me a blue belt after rolling with me. From that time, I would go and roll with some BJJ guys, but never really want to go deeper into it since my thing was purely judo. I recently started officially training with Carlson Gracie Jr and his 2nd degree BB Daniel Wanderley. I am really having a blast training with these guys. Since my club participates in BJJ tournaments, I became an associate club, so, my students can actually be ranked in BJJ by Carlson Gracie.
