#14 Brazilian BJJ Teachers Abroad

Coming to America

We love us some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the instructors who come here to teach us. But what about the instructors themselves? Deciding to become an immigrant is not an easy decision. The competition for students here among instructors increases every day, legal issues are complex, and there is no guarantee of success. What makes them decide to take the plunge and start a new life here? We'll speak with Andrew Correa of JiuJitsuNow about what it's like for a Brazilian who wants to come here and teach BJJ in the United States.
