On Mon Feb 2nd fresh from Alliance’s victory in the European Championships Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti  and Fabio “The General” Gurge l conducted a seminar in Cascais, Portugal. This was an exclusive event only for members of the Alliance family. The seminar was very well attended by jiu-jitsu practitioners from all over Europe.
The highlight of the seminar was the promotion of 5 black belts. The honored individuals where:
Tommy Malmberg - Finland
Darius Saniee - Germany (Frankfurt)
Henry Navorra - Germany (Frankfurt)
Ulf Ehlert - Germany (Berlin)
David Dimopoulos - Greece
Rather than rest on their recent victory the leaders of Alliance where working hard to ensure future dominance. This seminar circuit is part of Alliance’s plan to ensure that the entire worldwide team is functioning at the same high standard.
The goal for 2010 is to win the “Grand-Slam” of Jiu-Jitsu. This means that Alliance plans to win the Pan-Am, Worlds, and Brazilian Championships to go along with their recent victory in Europe.
