After settling in to open mat last night at the academy here in San Diego, who walks in the door but Tarsis Humphries, one of Alliance Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s biggest stars! Tarsis has always been on the cusp of this biggest prizes in BJJ competition. Some of his achievements in the black belt arena that he has won:

  • 3rd place in the heavyweight division of the 2008 BJJ World Championships, behind Xande Ribeiro and Alexandre Souza
  • 3rd place in the medium heavyweight division of the 2007 BJJ World Championships, behind Romulo Barral and Saulo Ribeiro
  • 2nd place in the 2008 BJJ Pan-Ams, right behind Andre Galvao!

So guess what? It’s time to see what the Mighty 600,000 can contribute to an interview I will be doing with Tarsis for The FightWorks Podcast! What questions do you have for Tarsis about training BJJ, about the jiu-jitsu lifestyle, about Alliance… anything! Be creative!

Also remember that if you want to ask him a question to improve your BJJ game, you can call us toll free at (877) 247-4662 and we’ll present it directly to him in audio! How’s that for service?

Tarsis got hung up and was not able to make our appointment last week. I hope to meet him on Tuesday Aug 5th now!

Tarsis came to Boise, Idaho a few months back to give a seminar at our Jiu-jitsu academy… let me say that that was my first seminar and has since stood out among all the others. Tarsis is awesome, a great teacher, and doesnt hold back. it is truly an honor for him to show up anywhere outside of Brazil! congrats!
