Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World champion Felipe "Preguiça" Pena represented the Gracie Barra team at the Brazil Teams’ Nationals 2016. After the tournament, we got a interview with the black belt, where he commentates finish in his fight at the Brazil Teams' Nationals, talks about what he deems necessary to rear a blue-belt, and reveals how he overcomes his adrenaline before tournaments.
The adrenaline before the competition is normal -- I think everybody gets it, but I think that, the more you fight in tournaments, the more experienced you get, and that reduces that adrenaline a bit, removing some of the nervousness, but that adrenaline, that nervousness before the match, I think it will always exist. Especially before the first fight. At least with me, after I fight in the first match, I get relaxed, I sweat and then I'm calmer.
