Well the competition season of Brazilian jiu-jitsu is upon us again. This very weekend, the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation is holding the European BJJ Championship in Lisbon, Portugal. What better way to kick things off than with a couple of interviews from two current world champions?

In interviews brought to us all the way from Sao Paulo, we will speak with two Alliance jiu-jitsu studs, Michael Langhi and Bernardo Faria. Langhi is the 2010 mens lightweight black belt world champion, and Faria is the 2010 mens heavyweight black belt world champion. We’ll hear directly from them about what they do to earn such success on the global level in the very competitive world of BJJ.

This week’s interviews come courtesy of Chris Brown, who is fulfilling most gringo BJJ practioners’ dreams of heading to Brazil to train jiu-jitsu for extended periods. Many thanks to Chris for the contribution.
