Professional Jiu-jitsu events that provide an opportunity for athletes to earn a living as competitors in BJJ are few in number. Events like Copa Podio need support of the fans in order to grow and continue to provide opportunity for our favorite athletes to earn a living as competitors, bringing professionalism to Jiu-jitsu. I hope to see a better understanding from fans in the form of support of events like Copa Podio Jiu-jitsu in the future. Do your part for Jiu-jitsu and support the show!
