A little over two years ago I was given the chance to train with Roberto Torralbas. Ever since that night Roberto has been so eager to help me improve my jiu jitsu. He could answer all my questions and would help me drill the technique that I was having trouble with until I understood. Last year at the Pan Ams after Roberto had dominated his own division he came up to me and sat for a while as he helped me put together my own game plan. It has been a great experience being able to watch Roberto travel and compete. He is a very technical fighter which makes him even more exciting to watch. Roberto trains harder than any one I know. I have heard many stories of his training routine while he was at Cornell and I don’t think that many other people would be able to pull off what he did. Not only is he a great instructor and competitor he is an awesome friend. If I ever had a problem Roberto made it clear that he was there to talk to even if it was not training related. He is a very positive person and has a great attitude towards training. I am glad that I have had to privilege to train him.
