    Roberto “Tussa” Camargo is a black belt from Gracie Barra who has been a common face on the Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition scene here in the USA for the last few years now. If Tussa enters a competition, you can expect to see him on the podium! Here are recent results in some of the bigger competitions for Tussa:

    * 2008 Mundials: bronze medal, heavyweight division
    * 2008 Pan-Ams: silver medal, heavyweight division
    * 2008 Pan-Ams No Gi: gold medal, heavyweight division
    * 2007 Mundials: silver medal, heavyweight division

    In this conversation we will learn about jiu-jitsu in his home city of Brasilia, which is 1,610 km (1,000 miles!) from Rio de Janeiro, how jiu-jitsu competitors at his level prepare for tournaments, and much more.

    And that’s only the first half of our show! This week we will conclude the conversation we had last time with Ricardo Almeida brown belt Emily Kwok. Emily was a world champion in the women’s brown / black belt division in 2007 and will receive her black belt in November. We’ll discuss the state of elite female BJJ today and her theory on the different stages of learning in jiu-jitsu.
