Demian Maia Athlete/Teacher is a tough UFC competitor that also enjoys teaching. He tries to keep the balance between training and teaching. Maia trains daily at his gym in Sao Paulo and admits that finding that perfect balance between fighting and training was not easy at first. Maia says that an athlete first becomes a teacher and then a fighter and that teaching made him a tough and complete fighter. Years ago, he gave up teaching because he found it difficult to do both. In 2014, he fell back into teaching and says that helped him evolve into a well-rounded athlete.
