Living the Martial Arts Way of Life in Striving to Improve Ourselves
Paulo Alexandre Silva
Paulo is an extremely talented martial artist whose passion in life is competing, practicing and teaching BJJ.
While living in Portugal in 2006, Paulo was at his local gym and came across a BJJ class going on. He was intrigued by the class and decided to give it a try. After the first class, Paulo fell in love with the sport and knew he would train for the rest of his life.
After a few months of training, Paulo entered into his first competition. Though he lost the match, he says, ''It made me realize how much I love it and how hard and smart I have to train if I want to compete and be successful in winning.'' My long term goals are training, teaching and helping people succeed in BJJ."
Since then, Paulo has competed in many competitions such as:
NAGA New England 2008- 1st place
