Interview With Leo Negao Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion

Leo Negao Brazilian Jiu JitsuWe were recently invited to interview four time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion Leo Negao.

This was just about the most exciting news ever to fall into our inbox – after all, we normally just receive a torrent of emails about sunglasses, steroids and tits.

So, brimming visibly with excitement, we bundled into the GymTalk minibus and drove on down to Leo’s dojo in Vauxhall, London.

In addition to dominating the sport of BJJ in the late 90s, Leo Negao has also trained with some of the biggest names in Martial Arts, such as Anderson Silva and Carlson Gracie, and is a leading proponent of ‘Vale Tudo’, or ‘no holds barred’ fighting.

In the video below, Leo talks about how he got started with BJJ and MMA, his approach to training and fitness, and how he snapped a Russian fighter’s arm…
