This is Rafael Lima, I have more than 20 years practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I was World Champion (1998), Brazilian National Champion (1994, 1995, 1996, 1997), World Silver Medallist (1997), Pan American Silver Medallist (2000, 2003), Pan American Bronze Medallist (1997).
Now I am opening my own START Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in Pembroke Pines, Florida after working alongside Renzo Gracie from the famous Renzo Gracie Academy in New York, from its foundation in 2004 up until 2009. It gives me great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Unai Arozena Albaya, who is the Web Master, Graphic Designer, Publicist and Clothing Designer of my Martial Arts Academy.
I had the pleasure of traveling with Unai to New Hampshire, for the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Seminar. He travelled as the official photographer of the seminar. Unai has a unique way of looking at Photography, and shares that vision with others through his work ethic, insight, and sensitivity. Unai is an extremely hard worker and dedicates himself to seeing a project through to its rightful conclusion. Many workers show great promise in the beginning but few of them live up to that promise. Unai has done that with a style that is unmistakable.
Unai is the most respected and admired Photographer that I have ever met. He is enormously talented with a tremendous future ahead. I am sure that he will be one of the best Martial Arts Photographers in USA, his technique is perfect.
