From Rio to the World’s

On my recent trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, I caught up with my brother as he pursues his greatest passion, Brasilian Jiu Jitzu, with reckless abandon.  Facing three training sessions a day with some of the highest caliber martial artists in the world, he enters his final weeks in Brasil, preparing to compete in the World Jiu Jitzu Championship in Long Beach, California.  Please check out this mini documentary of his experience.

Travel has always encouraged my creative appetite for documenting compelling stories that will enlighten the public on the social and cultural developments of our world. I'm looking for the light in even the most bleak humanitarian situations, the inspirational stories that can become a catalyst for significant change. Most recently, my work has been featured in, Elephantjournal.com, Reset.me. Find me on Instagram @_Sommertime_ and Twitter: @Paigesommer

  • That’s awesome. My client owns a Jiu Jitzu studio here in Bluffton. Ben Rhodes is his name a biggggg boy!

  • This is wonderful. Very inspiring to anyone pursuing their passion. It shows that even with the ups and downs, you should never give up your dream. This is a message to everyone….Don’t let anything deter you from what you know in your heart is right for you.

  • I have some video of Eriks MMA fights
