    Yan Cabral and Leo Santos Seminar at Nova Uniao

    Wed, 2013-09-04 04:53 — thheffelfinger

    I spent a lot of last week in the kimono working my ground game. In addition to Dennis' class, that due to rain we had inside Premiere house, I also made it into Nova Uniao several times. As always the technique and rolling was great. One aspect I like is that that as NU they work takedown techniques a lot more than most gyms I have been to in Rio. A lot of places will just drill entries into takedowns or throws very lazily as part of the warm up; at NU they will actually show and work defense and offense from the feet and sometimes include short live situational goes from standing.

     The cool “winter” weather of Rio is gone and the sun has been out all week without a cloud in the sky. In our down time here at CR everyone has been out working on their tan at the beach or poolside here at the house. The warm weather at night has been perfect for grilling food out on the barbeque and enjoying a meal under the stars. Just because it was beautiful out doesn't mean we didn't spend plenty of time in the gym.

     This past week has been a busy one. Nicole and I moved over to CR HQ, so the first part of the week was spent packing and unpacking, and the start of many small projects around the Connection Rio hostels. But one things for certain in Brazil, it's never all work and no play; I got some great training in this week along with some BBQing and a night of athletic challenges.

    Marcos Loro, Nova Uniao bb, fighting for ROC belt

    Fri, 2010-12-03 07:52 — Kimuralex

    Here is the video of one of my coaches in Vitor Shaolin's academy, Marcos "Loro" Galvao training for his ROC title fight today.
    The reason his hair is bleached is because his nickname, LORO, actually means blonde in portugese. This time it came out a little gold, but thats ok because hes a baller.
    Loro is on his way back up, after a loss in WEC last year. He is fighting a tough and undefeated kid named Ryan Vaccaro for the title in Ring Of Combat.
    Also, teammate Danilo Cherman via Lions Den Connecticut is going to be fighting as well.
