Bruno Frazatto recently found himself with a great opportunity on his hands. At a paradise beach town in Santa Catarina state, he was able to enjoy a seminar alongside Ricardo De La Riva and even roll with successful model and black belt Paulo Zulu.
“Man, I really liked De La Riva. I didn’t know him personally before. He’s real chill, humble, and good people, not to mention how much he knows about Jiu-Jitsu. His students in attendance were really funny and we were laughing the whole time!” he tells GRACIEMAG.com.
Besides the great time with De La Riva, the Atos rep was able to get in a few rolls with Paulo Zulu, whose Guard academy is set up in his own home.
“Zulu doesn’t mess around, he’s tough as nails. He’ll give everyone a hard time if he enters his division at tournaments,” he says.
Now with his attention focused on competing, Frazatto is coming off a win at the World Cup, where he had three matches and beat former world champion Mário Reis in the final.
“It was an awesome match, 4-4 on points and 3-2 in advantage points. Mário is dangerous, and you always have to be careful with him,” he remarks.
Now he’s looking ahead to the 2011 season, with the European Open coming up on the 27th to the 30th of January, in Lisbon, Portugal.
“Training is going off. I’m going to spend New Year’s in Rio, but I’ll be at Ary Farias’s house, so we’ll be training hard,” he says in closing.
