Fightworks Podcast #196 Braulio Estima, Shawn Williams

    Sun, 2010-01-31 08:54 — Anonymous

    2009 was Braulio Estima’s year. Not only did the Gracie Barra competitor win the heavyweight division of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation’s World Championship, but he won both his weight class and the absolute division of the biannual ADCC submission grappling competition and the IBJJF European Championship. Today on the FightWorks Podcast, Cohost Dan sits down with “Carcara” and learn about how things have changed for him since his recent accomplishments. We will also get a very inspiring perspective on his jiu-jitsu origins. (Did you know that Braulio Estima lost his first match in the first five jiu-jitsu tournaments he competed in?)

    We also hear from Shawn Williams, another Gracie Barra black belt. Williams received jiu-jitsu education from Renzo Gracie himself at Renzo’s Manhattan academy. Now Williams runs Hollywood BJJ, in an attempt to recreate the vibe of Renzo’s New York school. Williams is the originator of the aptly named “Shawn Williams Guard” and also is half of the commentating crew of the annual BJJ World Championship DVDs produced by Budo Videos. FightWorks Podcast contributor Christian Simamora brings us this interview.
