At this past NY Open, we had the opportunity to chat with one of the newest black belts from the Brasa team leader (Felipe Costa), Ryan Hall. Along with being one of the most dedicated competitors in the country, Ryan is always an entertaining and informative interviewee. His most recent big win was at the 2009 ADCC where Ryan (a brown belt at the time) brought home the bronze medal with a terrific performance among such competition such as Leo Vieira, Jeff Curran, and Jeff Glover.
In this interview, Ryan touches upon some of his top competitive moments, his first day at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and his future plans among other subjects. Please support Ryan and all of his endeavors.
