Victor’s daughter Kayla received her yellow belt last week at Gracie Humaitá Ilha do Governador from Grandmaster Manoel. Victor surprised her at her promotion ceremony to her delight. The jiu-jitsu circle of knowledge is never-ending.
Victor twists back and to his left to make space for his left arm to swing back in front of Matt’s shoulder.
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.
Victor shows how to pass the open guard when you are standing and your opponent is trying to control you with his feet on your hips.
Victor shows how to use the arm drag from the spider guard to take your opponent’s back and submit with the rear naked choke. Cecilia and Geovane, silver medalists at the Miami Open, demonstrate the technique.
Thanks to everyone who created such a great turnout for Grandmaster Manoel’s seminar on June 30th. Manoel, a Helio Gracie coral belt and longtime mentor for Victor, showed lots of self-defense techniques and some great moves for sport jiu-jitsu. We look forward to seeing much more of Grandmaster Manoel in the future.
