In this video, Felipe — a member of the Brasa team and a roosterweight competitor (58kg) – talks about the obstacles he had to overcome and the methods he used to rise to the top. He describes the sports psychology tricks he applied to win tournaments, and explains how he approaches his training as a smaller jiu-jitsu player. We also see some rolling footage from his ‘light guys only’ training sessions, get-togethers reserved for jiu-jitsu players under 73kg.
