Promotion Day for jiu-jitsu will be Saturday April 27th. This is for adults only. Children will be promoted sometime before that during regular classes.

Jason Rau Seminar is Sunday, May 5th. Time is yet to be determined but we anticipate it to be around noon. Cost is $40 prior to the event and $50 at the door. Jason is a Matt Serra black belt and a member of the so-called “Danaher Death Squad.” He is one of the best guard passers in jiu-jitsu and we will be asking him to review his guard passing concepts and techniques. I’m sure that he’s going to toss in some leg locks too.

Paul Schreiner Seminar is Sunday, July 28th. Again, the time is yet to be determined but we can expect that to be around noon also. Cost for Paul is $50. Paul Schreiner is a teacher at Marcelo Garcia’s Academy in Manhattan. Paul is a black belt under jiu-jitsu legend, Claudio Franca and has close relationships with two jiu-jitsu legends: Marcelo Garcia and Dave Camarillo. In my opinion, Paul is top-tier jiu-jitsu instructor - teaching the rationales and concepts behind the techniques.

Emily Kwok Seminar will be in September or August. Emily Kwok is a black belt under Ricardo Almeida. She is a pioneer for women’s jiu jitsu and created the “How to Defeat the Bigger Stronger Opponent” series with Stephan Kesting. Kwok is also a 2x IBJJF World Champion, and retired undefeated in MMA (2 fights). This is an opportunity to learn jiu-jitsu from someone who has excelled in jiu-jitsu that was almost always smaller and weaker than her training partner.
