Level Up Brazil competitors getting ready for 2017 season..tough physical preparation going on both on and off the mats. Congratulations Coach Felipe Makoto on all your hard work in your own training and in training the kids. Coach Felipe volunteers his time to teach children from the local slum (“Favela”) where he lives. He teaches these children throughout the week as well as bringing them to compete on weekends when he can find sponsorship for their entry fee. The children under the tutelage of Coach Felipe have been dominating the local competitions in their surrounding area. Keep up the great work Coach Felipe!
