Something that I truly love about our sport is that the legends of the past and the champions of today are available to the average athlete. I played a lot of sports growing up and was never on the court or field with a professional athlete, ever. I even went to sports camps that were endorsed by celebrity athletes. The closer I ever got to a pro athlete was meeting Charles Barkley because he was hitting on my friends older sister as she picked us up from camp. A few months ago I went to LA and trained with several world champions and met the pioneers of BJJ in the US. A few days ago I had another legend of the sport, Renzo Gracie, call me to talk a little bit about the World Jiu Jitsu Expo.
