He competed and won at the highest level longer than anyone and long before I started training. Between his gi and no gi titles, he has over a dozen world titles. I’m lucky enough to to have the experience of sharing the mat with someone of his caliber. He made me a better athlete by preparing for him. We both took this sport to new heights and it was an absolute honor for me and one of my dreams to compete against him. He will go down in the books as one of the best to ever do it. I’m just happy to be a part of his amazing story and lucky enough to be the one to whom he passed the torch. Thank you André for this experience.”
