Comprido and I are friends for a long time and our story begins in our childhood.
When I was 12 years old I started training BJJ. Soon Comprido discovered BJJ was also his passion and thanks to a great talent in a short time he became so good that he was able to teach in the academy where we were training. We shared the mat on a daily base and it was natural for us to become close friends inside and outside of the academy.
Comprido has always been a great example for me and in spite of the fact that we are from a very different weight class, I always looked up to him in terms of technique and competitiveness.
I feel honored to learn so much from him up to this day and to be able to call him a master and a true friend!
Comprido is currently teaching in Chicago and you can find more about him on his website.
