152: Thalys Pontes Pt. 1 Thalys Pontes is the #1 ranked Brown Belt in the world and the owner of TAP World Class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a successful and growing academy in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Although Thalys' future looks as bright as the gold medals he wins, Thalys had to GRIND to get to this point. Escaping the dangers of the streets of Brazil, going through the ranks with PSLPB Cicero Costa, and finessing US immigration are part of his rise to success in the Jiu-Jitsu industry.

151: Should you go full-time? Over the last decade the grappling industry has seen an influx of athletes forgoing traditional employment to pursue the life of a full-time jiu-jitsu competitor. I can't lie, it's cool gig. You get to spend your days training, travel the world, and get giant novelty checks.
