I met Christophe in Belgium in 2004 when he was still a white belt. Since I remember, Christophe was always very dedicated to his training and showed a lot of interest in competition. From the beginning he showed desire to challenge himself in competition and that helped him to improve a lot. I followed his growth as a student, a competitor and a teacher and it gives me joy to see the great work he is doing.
It didn't take long for us to become close friends and that friendship was extended to our family as well.
Christophe is currently leaving in Mexico, where he is the head instructor of BRASA LEON. He is leading a small group of students with many good competitors. I believe it shows very well how significant is the influence of the teacher on his students.
Christophe also organizes a very respectful tournament called Grappling Leon.
