Current roosterweight champion of Brazil and South America Igor Rodrigues is another black belt who wants to stand out even more in 2013.

To do so, the CheckMat representative from the paradisiacal town of Buzios isn’t just dreaming of more medals. He wants to assure a happier future for a number of the students, young people and children who sport gis to train at his academy. “Here in Buzios we have 200 to 250 people training every day. They’re children, teenagers and adults who share a bunch of titles between them. The idea behind the project is to bring these people into society. After all, to a lot of people our project is the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m always looking for partners to help me out. A simple look from these students rewards me for everything I do, so one day I hope to see everyone doing well. Contrary to popular belief, there are a lot of people suffering in Buzios,” added the black belt.

To prove he understands all there is to know about turning things around and changing his students’ perspective, Igor sent us in this sweep that’s been working out for him a lot.
