The leader of GD Jiu-Jitsu Association, GMA member Gustavo Dantas, had a busy week in Abu Dhabi. In between cornering his Nova Uniao teammate Thales Leites at the UFC Fight Night he also competed and coached his student at the 2014 Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship.
He coached purple belt Sarah Black who earned silver in the -60 kg division. He also competed and secured the gold medal in the Master 2 -70 kg division!
“It was an amazing week! I had a great time in Abu Dhabi. After all these years of training and competing, I still learn so much about Jiu-Jitsu and about myself every time I compete,” says the BJJ Mental Coach. “My priority is teaching, promoting tournaments and now sharing my knowledge about mental skills training to the BJJ community, but once in a while I will try to jump in and challenge myself in a competition.”
