Today’s guest Rene Lopez joins us from his new academy’s amazing pop culture themed bathroom.
Rene sold his house to open his new academy and make his dreams come true. On this episode, he discusses the decision-making process that brought him to that point, how he became obsessed with a sport he originally thought wasn’t very cool, why he believes the bigger jiu jitsu athletes are more entertaining than the lighter guys, and when he realized natural talent wasn’t enough to compete against the best in the world.
Here is The RŌL Radio with the owner and instructor at Jiu-Jitsu Methods in Las Vegas Nevada, and a top Light Featherweight competitor, Rene Lopez.
