When Rocha was 16 years old, he got inspired by BJJ. It happened all of a sudden. Actually, Rocha went to Brazil when he was 16 on a family vacation. He was playing with his cousin who used to train in BJJ and was a Blue Belt. He and his cousin often compete and test each other’s fighting techniques and skills.
Rocha started to lose to his cousin because of the submission techniques of BJJ. His cousin defeated him in every fight and even to the point where Rocha had to tap out of the submissions. Rocha himself was a Brown Belt in taekwondo but still could not dominate his cousin. He said on a podcast that his cousin knew a lot about BJJ while he himself was ignorant of it. His cousin submitted him via many chokes and one of them Rear Naked Choke.
“My first encounter was on the grass of my aunt's house where I ate grass for about 30 minutes straight. It was rough”.
