I looked this up after wondering how much money Andre Galvao has made off of winning 3x. Absolute is really where it’s at though.

4 years ago I embarked on the journey of a martial artist.  My main goal was to get back in shape and lose a few pounds also to be healthier for my son’s sake. Little did i know I would become consumed by bjj practically every thought would be related to jiujitsu and how I could get better at it soon after I started competing a lot and I had success and also disappointments but one thing never changed and that was my drive to be a better practitioner of the art and reaching the goal of a black belt and someday having my own school to pass the knowledge down to others. @ricardoalmeidabjj thank you for providing @rogermamedov to teach us the art we all love and respect hands down one of the best instructors around and a great human being, being a product of such a great association is an honor and I hope to continue this tradition on my journey.  #bjj #jiujitsu #jiujitsulife #jiujitsuculture #progress #WMMA #teamalmeida #NYC #renzograciebjj #reflection #respect #lineage #payitforward #lifestyle #martialarts #warriorway
