Inspiring story! Englishman Sam Crook read a post by Francis Ngannou in 2019 saying he was looking for a teacher to teach jiu-jitsu to children of the foundation named after him, in Batié, a village where he was born in Cameroon.
Three months after chatting with the current heavyweight champion, Crook moved to Africa, where he teaches jiu-jitsu seven days a week.
Despite encountering difficulties with the local structure, he claims: “I’m not leaving until I form a black track and make a high-level team”.
The best in the fighting world is on the Combat screen!
