I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. I like to see the sunrise in the morning, I like to see the moonlight at night; I like to feel the music flowing on my face, I like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I like to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind, I like to do thought experiment when I cannot sleep in the middle of the night. I like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. I like to sleep early, I like to get up late; I like to be alone, I like to be surrounded by people. I like country’s peace, I like metropolis’ noise; I like the beautiful west lake in Hangzhou, I like the flat cornfield in Champaign. I like delicious food and comfortable shoes; I like good books and romantic movies. I like the land and the nature, I like people. And, I like to laugh.

He was so interested in the sport that he had enlisted in the Tae Kwon Do academy when he was still 8 years old. He continued his studies of Korean martial arts in the meantime, allowing him to achieve his black belt, where he stopped training at the age of 19. It was this early love for the sport that allowed him to flourish in such a way. Rominho, which became his name, had first started training in Jiu Jitsu when he was still very young. At the age of 15, he studied the sport with the Gracie Barra BH and his first coach there was was known as Draculino for his power and ferocity. His true intentions were that he would learn enough of the sport in order to begin fighting with mixed martial arts. During this time, he was invited to fight at a major event and he did the best that he could there, which was enough to gain him quite a bit of recognition. He was always a strong believer in the various benefits that came with the gi game for the submission wrestling aspects, and he had never stopped his training, even when he was preparing for these events. He was awarded his black belt by the teacher later on after he had proved his worth. His prowess has attracted a wide amount of attention and allowed him to enjoy numerous victories all over the world, where he began to take part in major events. Romulo Barral always encourages all people to follow their dreams and do their best in the sport.
