    OTM BJJ Player of the Year: Rodolfo Vieira

    Rodolfo Vieira did something unique in 2011 in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He was able to fill the seemingly insurmountable void left in the heavier weight classes of the sport, when jiu-jitsu's most dominant figure Roger Gracie decided to focus on his MMA career. However, as Roger's MMA career in Strikeforce began to take form, a new star was born as Rodolfo's BJJ career took off.

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American Jiu-Jitsu Player Blog: US Open Bronze

    Tue, 2011-10-18 21:30 — Nathan Mendelsohn

    The 2011 US Open this past weekend was an awesome event, even though I wasn't able to secure the result I had hoped for.
    I ended up winning my first fight 5 to 0 and losing my second fight 4 to 2 for a bronze medal. I then went on to fight the open division with a similar result of winning my first match and losing my second.

    Nathan Mendelsohn's American Jiu-Jitsu Player in Brazil Blog Entry #8: My time with Italo Lins and Coming Back Home

    Fri, 2011-09-23 16:09 — Nathan Mendelsohn

     Hey everybody!
    This past week was my last in Brazil before coming back to the states and I spent it with my good friend, black belt Italo Lins of GFTEAM, and his family in the neighborhood of Caxias near the international airport. Italo Lins had just arrived in Brazil after spending six months in the United States, two of which he spent at my house in Santa Cruz. He competed various tournaments while in the US and came back with many new titles, including Champion of the recent Las Vegas Open.

    Wed, 2011-08-24 08:48 — Nathan Mendelsohn

     Hey everybody!
    Let's pick up where I left off last time.
    After the Rio Open I had to change locations because I was staying with my friend Marcus Antelante who is now traveling to the United States to teach classes in Atlanta. So now I'm here with my Brazilian Brothers Leopoldo and Theodoro Canal in Recreio. Whenver Theodoro travels to Santa Cruz, CA he stays with me and my family and whenever I come to visit Rio he always receives me in his home and takes really good care of me.

     Hey everybody!
    So as I said in my last post, Ive already been here for a month but i wasnt with consistent access to the internet and so theres some catching up to do.
    When I arrived here in Rio de Janeiro, I was picked up from the airport by my friend Douglas Lins, brown belt from GFTEAM and taken directly to Niteroi (the city neighboring Rio de Janeiro) to fight the World Cup! I was tired from the 14 hour flight, but was hoping it was nothing a little Jack3D and a good warm up couldn't fix.
