    Jiu-Jitsu in Frames


    Since 2017

    I started unpretentiously working on my own YouTube channel but I did not have time to produce content and I could not prioritize it because the channel was not my paid job. However in 2019, after a vacation trip to the USA and some interviews that went well, I created the show “Open Mat” to interview athletes remotely and at the same time, I started a podcast. Step by step my work was growing, developing, and in 2020 it became my job. Then I created the “Escuta aqui, faixa branca”, a podcast with tips for jiu-jitsu beginners, and now these two shows are the main ones on my YouTube channel. In addition, I also cover events. I work 100% alone, so I am responsible from start to finish, including video editions, video recording, producing, and distribution on social media.
