Exclusive Interview with Black Belt Walter “Cascao” Vital

Exclusive Interview With Black Belt Walter “Cascao” Vital

Walter “Cascao” Vital is a high level black belt that not only runs his own association but is still a world class competitor. We had a chance to interview him quick to pick his brain about his career, achievements and association. Cascao is known for being a very individual teacher to all belt levels and kicking major ass, here is what he had to say!

1. How did you get started in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

I started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 1991 after one of my friends got spanked by gang members in Brazil!

2. What is your favorite accomplishment you have achieved in BJJ?

My favorite accomplishment I have achieved was getting first place at the 2007 world no gi competition.

3. What do you think BJJ does for a person’s life?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t just build a strong personality, but it can get you in much better shape, change your sense of humor, enables you to be more social with people, helps you work better, and builds confidence in yourself. It even does more than what I just said!

4. Who has been your toughest opponent?

The toughest opponent I have faced was Roger Gracie in the quarterfinals of the world tournament in 2010.

5. What drove you to start your own BJJ association?

My association started after I started noticing the opportunities of my students to run schools.

6. What has been the toughest aspect of starting a BJJ association?

The toughest part is the fact that a lot of black belts start associations like a business and this isn’t good. The only associations that survive are the ones what have the real spirit of BJJ. I’m really in love with my sport and all my teammates who run my schools are as well!
