Aaron Benzrihem - Bernardo Faria's First Black Belt

Forever White Belt

Aaron Benzrihem is Bernardo Faria's first Black Belt, having earned his previous brown belt from Alliance Marcelo Garcia Association.  Aaron is a multiple time Fight To Win Pro Veteran and Winner, Multiple Time IBJJF Medalist and has competed in several tournaments winning and making the podium in almost all of them.  He has a fantastic YouTube channel teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and it is clear he is driven by a passion to spread the art that helped shape his life.  He is a young and ambitious entrepreneur and newlywed who has practiced several other martial arts including Muay Thai, Jeet Kune Do, Boxing, and Wrestling. He was an instructor at The Bernardo Faria Academy, he is also the first employee hired by BJJ Fanatics where his role as Senior Product Manager keeps him busy at present. This is one of those rare young (27 as of this recording) up and coming instructors that I akin to a fantastic growth stock opportunity. Meaning if I could put money on him to compound in value I would. Once you see Aaron's YouTube channel you will see why, he has an approachable yet, highly technical, yet easily digestible way to teaching BJJ which checks all those boxes which is a rarity for someone with so much runway left. I can see why Bernardo Faria decided to not only coach and mentor him but to award Aaron as his very first black belt, what a tremendous honor. Aaron is refreshingly candid, surprisingly self aware, an absolute gentleman, and a class act. Make sure to check out his two instructional's on The Leg Drag and The Half Butterfly on BJJ Fanatics and make sure to check out his amazing YouTube channel with over a years worth of highly produced content, it's quality stuff. Also, check out Aaron and his wife Bruna's dog training company Rise K9 Dog Training that not only does all sorts of dog training but also trains worst case scenario dogs on their last strike it's amazing stuff.  https://risek9training.com/. Some housekeeping notes, we recorded this before the infamous Gordon Ryan and Andre Galvao slap heard round the world so it's almost spooky how Aaron mentions this "beef".  Also, just a reminder to please give us a 5 star review on iTunes and check out our Forever White Belt merchandise at https://teespring.com/forever-white-belt, and become a patron by clicking the "Support" button at the https://anchor.fm/foreverwhitebelt/web page, also Like our Facebook page to get all the latest at https://www.facebook.com/foreverwhitebelt, and check us out on all the socials by searching for Forever White Belt.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/foreverwhitebelt/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/foreverwhitebelt/support
