    Have you trained any other martial arts besides BJJ for seven months?

    Folkstyle in HS? Judo? Something?

    Jaysus man, if you seriously only have 7 months of total grappling experience you are the second coming of BJ Penn...

    Congrats! Very impressive victories for someone only training 7 months. How often do you train a week?

    I suppose if he trained 6 days a week, 2-3 hours each training plus a few double trainings per day it is possible for him to be this good after 7 months. Even if he told us he has been training for a year he still looked very good in the videos.
