What an unforgettable event it was! Roger Gracie showed some of his favorite techniques with all the little details that make them so special. "What we saw today was very very advanced basics", said Choke's head instructor Joao Pedro Santos at the end of the event. "Instead of learning 20 new armlocks, how about focusing on the small details that make a basic armlock impossible to defend?".
The seminar revolved around a few simple techniques that everyone was familiar with: double leg takedown, armlock from guard, kimura from side control... So students from all levels could relate to it and apply the details and adjustments that Roger taught. "JP and I have been friends for over 15 years and I always enjoy visiting his school in Denmark. It's been a long time since I was here last time, so I hope we can make these events more often" Roger said in his closing speech.
The plan is to have him over at least once a year, maybe twice if we are lucky. On top of that, our team will train at the main Roger Gracie Academy in London in preparation for events in the UK.
