Royler Gracie Seminar 2013 a Huge Success

We were proud to host grappling legend Royler Gracie at Victor Huber BJJ for a three hour seminar. Royler showcased true Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to a packed academy on Saturday February 16th. Royler is a gifted teacher and instructed the academy on self-defense, takedowns and ground techniques. He then opened himself up to questions that ranged from specific positional questions to diet and training philosophies.

Thanks to everyone who created such a great turnout for Grandmaster Manoel’s seminar on June 30th.

We look forward to seeing much more of Grandmaster Manoel in the future.

Back from Rio with 2 Silvers, 4 Bronzes

The team traveled to Rio de Janeiro to compete in the World Masters/Seniors Championships, one of the most competitive tournaments in the world. The team proudly brought home two silvers and 4 bronzes. Congratulations to everyone who made this happen! Without our training partners there to push us, none of this would have been possible. We look forward to returning next year and doing even better.

Stay tuned for a photo gallery from our trip.
