BJJ Legends: Tell us a bit about yourself Guillaume Huni: Hi guys, My name is Guillaume "Gile" Huni, I'm 33 years old. I'm actually not originally from Eastern Europe, I'm 1/2 French, 1/2 Filipino and live in Belgrade, Serbia with my Serbian wife. I really consider myself a citizen of the world, as I've grown up, lived and worked in 8 different countries. I work as a marketing director at Belgrade Metropolitan University, and also run a BJJ news website called BJJ Eastern Europe. I'm a BJJ black belt under Jovan Zerjal, training at Zerjal Team Serbia (Fernando Pinduka/ Carlson Gracie lineage).
BJJL: What got you started in BJJ? GH: I had first heard of BJJ around 1995 when I watched Royce at UFC 1, but it wasn't until 2001 when I started training BJJ in Paris, France at Alliance Paris. I spent a few months in Rio de Janeiro the year after, training and soaking up the local culture. I was competing and training all over the world, and made a lot of contacts and friends in the process.I now have been living in Serbia for the past 7 years.
