“I’ve been seeing blue and purple belts who think Jiu-Jitsu’s all about grabbing a sleeve and trying some little sweeps. That’s awful for the sport, but what can you do about it? No one can control that.”
“Hoje vejo faixas-azuis e roxas com a visão de que Jiu-Jitsu é pegar na manga e tentar raspadinhas. Isso é ruim para o esporte, mas o que se pode fazer? Ninguém pode controlar isso”
