[buzzsprout episode='319280' player='true'] Raf's Recollection | Hey Folks, on another deadline as I write this (so I have to keep things short) but you're in for a good one this week.

On this episode, we bring on Ricardo Tubbs, the President of De FIRMA Kimono Company. For those of you who tuned in to hear me commentate live at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam, you may have heard Ricardo send in some hilarious tweets -- going as far to even provide an incentive for me to continue plugging his gear.DeFirma

Curious to hear more about what would compel someone to dare me to plug, as well as a genuine interest in the company, we brought Ricardo on the show. And we were delighted to hear the cool story behind Ricardo's BJJ beginnings (it's almost unbelievable), as well as the way he began his company.

It's a rich conversation that takes us all over the place and really gives you a great take-away as to what makes his company so unique and invested in the community.

Listen in and let us know what you think folks!
