Fernando Augusto da Silva, better known to BJJ practitioners everywhere as Fernando Terere, is a multiple-time World Champion and Pan-Am Champion.
But his medals aren’t the only thing made of gold. Terere also has a heart, and his gym helps poor kids stay off the streets – the same streets Fernando himself grew up.
In this video, Terere not only talks about his gym, but about his first day of jiu-jitsu.
The video is under ten minutes long, and is well worth your time if you’re looking to get a glimpse into the life of Fernando Terere, one of the greatest jiu-jitsu practitioners of all time.
