Nathan Mendelsohn's American Jiu-Jitsu Player in Brazil Blog, Entry #6: Rodolfo Vieira gets ready for ADCC!!

    Tue, 2011-09-06 09:52 — Nathan Mendelsohn

     Hey everybody!
     
    While training here at GFTEAM lately I've had the opportunity to watch good friend Rodolfo Vieira (another of the top level black belts that I've had the honor of receiving in my home in California) as he gets ready for the upcoming ADCC.
     
    The man is a monster. He's been training only no gi since I've been here and he does 10 minute match after 10 minute match almost without resting for the entire duration of the class. He trains without ego which I find really impressive. He trains in positions where he's not comfortable, tries new techniques he just learned, and I've even seen him tap various times but never does it seem to bother him. I even saw him using a detail from the armbar that I showed him!! Better believe that brought a smile to my face. 
     
    Yesterday he took off to Texas to train some wrestling for a couple weeks leading up to the big tournament, and everyone here misses him already.
     
    Rodolfo is an awesome guy and a truly humble champion and I wish him the best of luck in ADCC and the rest of his career.
     
    Stay tuned!!!

    oops! i just saw ur comment right now scotty, haha I was training almost all in the gi down there 'cus that's the main focus of training at GFTEAM but rodolfo was training only without the gi the whole time and people were taking turns taking off the gi to train with him. I was bummed to see him end up getting finished at ADCC 'cus he was looking really good in training but I just hope he didn't get hurt too bad
