The format for Saulo's seminar in Virginia Beach will be very similar to the Toledo seminar except that he will be doing gi and no gi. The date is Saturday March 13th. 11am to 1pm will be gi and 130pm to 330pm will be no gi. $80 for 1 or the other, $120 for both gi and no gi.
All are welcome and I would love to have as many guys down as possible. We have plenty of space and I can help find inexpensive places for people to stay need be.
During the first wave of Vale Tudo fighting that came to the USA, it was hard to know who was legitimate and who wasn't. There we all kinds of claims people were making. It was hard to tell the real from the fake. The first web site to try and validate Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts was BJJ.org. The site had no authority to rank anyone. Belt listings were submitted by other enthusiasts & players. Through research and online policing the belts were verified.
I recently sat down and interviewed Mr. Ian McPherson, number 5 on Gracie Magazine’s list of who to watch out for in 2010. Ian is known as one of the nicest guys in the entire Alliance organization. He will work repetitions of the most basic techniques with the newest white belt for hours, just out of love for the sport. Ian is always the first one at the academy and the last to leave. His competitive drive is second to none.
