John Smalls’ amazing BJJ drawings of Rio

John Smalls is an artist from NYC and a blue belt under Marcelo Garcia. He recently made the trip from Manhattan to Rio de Janeiro and stayed at the Connection Rio HQ house for 5 days.

Here’s what John had to say about his stay at Connection Rio:  
“I had a great time staying at the Connection Rio house. At first I was a skeptic but in the end I met some great people and fighters. I will recommend Connection Rio to friends. Thank you for making me feel welcome and a part of the team.”

Aside from training and checking out what the city had to offer, John also used his time to do what he does best – record aspects of his trip in the form of paintings and drawings.
