Quote: "Jiu Jitsu is the only art that allows you to win a fight without hurting your opponent. I use striking techniques to open the way for submissions. My objective is not to knock anyone out. I don't want to hurt my opponents. I only want to make them tap so that they can go home and train again. " Demian Maia
