BJJ Hacks Video - BJJ in Favela Cantagalo: Jackson Sousa (Pt2)

The outstanding BJJ Hacks group is producing a mini series on rising black belt Jackson Sousa.

The website BJJ Hacks specializes in making awesome documentary style videos on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, both the art and its practitioners. Their YouTube channel is full of goodness and is well worth your time and subscription.

Their most recent mini-series is going to focus on rising young star Jackson Sousa, known for his harrowing climb out of poverty and his crushing top game. Jackson was well known in the Brazilian scene, but due to his lack of sponsors he was unable to travel aboard to compete for much of his career.

Sousa began to get sponsors in 2012 and since then he has won the European Open three times, once as a black belt, a brown belt World Championships, a black belt no gi World Championship, and a Championship in the IBJJF Pro League.

The young Checkmat grappler is very likely to figure into the results of high level MMA for years to come, and this video is this series looks to be a great introduction to him.
