Alliance Brazilian jiu-jitsu is known for producing champions, ranging from Marcelo Garcia, to Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles, to Lucas Lepri and Chris Moriarty. This week on the show we will sit down with another stud from the Alliance team, Tarsis Humphreys.
Tarsis was in town from Sao Paulo, Brazil to prepare for this weekend’s 2008 No-Gi World BJJ Championships and he stopped by the academy where I train for an interview and a little training. (If you’d like to see footage of him in action at the academy, check out our BJJ Video page).
After some no gi rolling - which consisted of me getting beat up the way you’d expect when a medalist from the World Championships is your opponent - we sat down and recorded a conversation which includes the difference between training under Alliance’s Fabio Gurgel and Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti, a question that you provided via What Are You Working On?, and much more!
