Pronunciation for BJJ 101 (free tip):

While training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, you will come across words, names in Portuguese that have some interesting pronunciation.

When r is the first letter of the word or when you have rr, the sound is always like h in 'house'.

So Ronda Rousey would be Honda Housey.

Barra would be Bahha.

Sorriso (smile) would Sohhiso.

Ronehunga would be Onehunga (just kidding).
