Back in September I got the opportunity to attend a seminar conducted in KC by UFC Middleweight and multi-time BJJ world champion, Demian Maia. The seminar was simply awesome! Although the techniques are far too numerous to try to recall on this post I would say that the highlight of the seminar for me was his emphasis on jiu jitsu as a self defense art. I haven’t seen this in other BJJ schools like I have seen at the Gracie Academy, so it was great to hear it being emphasized from someone outside of the GJJ Academy lineage. If he comes back…I’ll definitely try my best to attend. Cheers…
