Englishman Sean Coates came to Brazil for the first time as part of Connection Rio’s sponsored athlete program, spending 3 months in the home of jiu-jitsu.

Inspired by his teacher, a British Gracie Barra black belt who had lived in Rio for many years, Sean followed in his footsteps and came to Brazil looking to take his game to the next level.

In Rio de Janeiro, Sean has visited many different gyms and met a long list of famous figures from the world of BJJ.
