If you do jiu-jitsu, you've probably heard of Rodolfo Vieira, one of the most successful BJJ athletes in history. Back in 2012 we sent our videographer on a very specific mission to Campo Grande, a suburban area of Rio de Janeiro, to very personally capture the every day life of someone who is so successful in jiu-jitsu. What resulted from this little adventure is a 3-part documentary (total of 40 minutes) that goes into depth about Rodolfo's training regimen for jiu-jitsu and conditioning, his relationship with his family and teammates and he also shares some very useful techniques.
This is the film that catapulted Jits Magazine into popularity. There were very few in-depth and raw documentaries that covered this much detail of an athlete's life, so without further delay, we have all 3 parts below. If you haven't seen this yet then get some popcorn, have a seat and enjoy.
