As we get on the verge of the Abu Dhabi World Professional Adults Jiu Jitsu Championship, ArabsMMA repoter Zahi Ephrem had the chance to visit Walid Bros gym in Abu Dhabi and meet up with some of the top talents competing this year. This time we met up with American Top Team Wellington head coach Emyr Bussade along side two of his top students Eric Schlosser and Joey Aman who will be competing this week in the blue and purple division.

Emyr, hailing from lebanon and proud of his heritage, was and raised in the city of Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, when he started training under the legendary Carlson Gracie.

Emyr then continued his Journey with Master (Ricardo Liborio) to BTT before joining ATT in Florida. “Shark” won the World (Mundials) Championship in 2001, and was runner-up in 2000. He was also a Brazilian Champ ’99, and competed in the prestigious Abu Dhabi tournament where he placed 3rd in 2001. Shark received his black belt from Ricardo Liborio in 2002.
