A big thank you to Master Royler Gracie!

August 26, 2012

The Royler Gracie seminar at Gracie Humaita Sydney HQ last saturday was awesome! Always a pleasure to learn from the master himself and his ability to engage and entertain the group is second to none! We were lucky to have such a great turn out from the entire Gracie Humaita Sydney team too!

Royler Gracie Seminar (Sydney, Australia 2012)

Not only did Royler teach a great seminar but he held some special coaches only training sessions in which he reviewed a lot of the Gracie Jiu Jitsu self-defense curriculum, other positions and business planning. It is amazing just how technical Royler is even with the most basic of positions. Everyone in the room learnt a lot and got to brush up on some of the finer details across various positions and techniques.

The Gracie Humaita Sydney connection has been strengthened further after Master Royler Gracie’s visit. Thank you for sharing your knowledge of Gracie Jiu Jitsu with us Royler and we look forward to your return next year. A huge thanks also to my coaches Bruno Panno and Marcos Nevel for bringing Royler out and working tirelessly to build and strengthen the team!

Gracie Jiu Jitsu Masterclass with Royler Gracie

August 17, 2012

So yesterday I was lucky enough to do a special 2 hour Masterclass on Gracie Jiu Jitsu Self Defense Techniques with Master Royler Gracie and the Gracie Humaita/Sydney coaches. Talk about a fantastic opportunity and a great learning experience! The thing you realise when learning from Royler is just how amazing  and technical he is as a coach and he doesn’t miss a thing. Personally I have had to use some of the Gracie Jiu Jitsu Self Defense techniques during security work over the last decade and they have served me well and saved my neck more than a few times! But even knowing the techniques and using them isn’t the same as doing them under the direct supervision of the Master! Royler made plenty of incremental adjustments to our techniques which dramatically improved the leverage and efficiency of the techniques. I learnt so much and am looking forward to passing on these new details and adjustments to my students

I must say I am excited for Royler Gracie’s seminar today at Gracie Humaita/Sydney HQ and look forward to learning more from the master as it is not often you get the opportunity to train with a legend! See you on the mat!

 

Good Luck with Your Training and Happy Rolling!
