Dave Camarillo has been training in the martial arts since he was five years old. He started Jiu-Jitsu when he was 19 years old. He is also known for coaching some of the best in the world of MMA. He also shares a story of a robbery that happened to him on a bus in Brazil.
Some highlights from the interview:
"I really don't think that martial arts is for sport first, I sincerely believe that it is for self defense and self awareness."
"Competition is not for everyone because it definitely has a psychological positive and negative."
"I would rather a child be a good person than win a tournament."
"I see an over emphasis on winning, that's not good for kids, kids need to be happy."
About students wanting to do MMA, "For 99% of people out there trying to fight, it should not be for a career.... It is for people who want to test themselves in that arena.... If your goal is to be famous (doing MMA) I won't train you."
When asked about goals for new students "Your first goal is attendance."
"Jiu-Jitsu is not just about armbars... it is about being a better person... You will increase the quality of your life in all aspects, because you are in a safe environment around like-minded people."

BjjBrick (metaphor) it’s important to have a few key techniques that you can perform at a high level. You need to have a well-rounded game, but having some great techniques will help you excel at BJJ. To your opponents it will feel like they got hit with a brick. It takes a lot of blood and sweat to make a BjjBrick, but if you are making the correct bricks the effort will be well worth it.
Big strong tree-
How important is it to have really good fundamentals? Having poor fundamentals is like a tree trying to grow branches without having a strong trunk. Strong fundamentals are the foundation of your game, like a strong trunk supports a large tree.
The Building Burns-
This analogy helps someone who has been training BJJ and now they are going to be doing MMA.
