Bom Dia and happy monday friends and fans! We are kicking off the week with news, announcements and giveaways all week long as we count down the days to Brazilian Day Festival! Brazilian Day attendees are in for a real treat this year as we have a very special guest joining us with his academy! Starting the day off at 12:30pm, is our annual Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) workshop / demonstration. Jiu-Jitsu is a Brazilian martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position from which to force an attacker to submit. Seen throughout the MMA, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (with the uniform or not) and MMA competition.
This year's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu segment will be taught by Gustavo Dantas of GD Jiu-Jitsu Academy, the premier Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school in Arizona. Gustavo Dantas is not just a teacher, but the man is a 3x world Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion, 4th degree black-belt, world-class competitor, coach, speaker and mental / life coach! For 25 years both in Brazil and the U.S., Gustavo has been a fierce competitor, mentor, student and teacher to the art of Jiu-Jitsu. Gustavo and his academy students will demonstrate what its like to take to the map.
This Year's JIU-JITSU WORKSHOP: 12:30pm - 1:15pm
