Hi everyone

Just a heads up to all people coming to Sydney for the Abu Dhabi Pro Gi on the 19th of February, & those who live in Sydney:

7 x World Champion Robson Moura will be conducting an open seminar at Boxing Works gym on the Sunday the 20th of February!

Robinho will be teaching and training with me at SCJJA for the week leading up to the tournament, and has offered to conduct a seminar after it for anybody who is interested in learning his game.

For those who are unaware of of Robinho's skill, he was recently voted as the "2nd Best BJJ Fighter of All Time" on this website:

http://www.bjjheroes.com/bjj-news/top-10-bjj-fighters-of-all-time

You can also read more about him on these sites:

http://www.robsonmoura.com
http://www.bjjheroes.com/bjj-fighters/robson-moura-bjj-fighter

and his youtube channel here has some great clips:

He is probably the best black belt to ever come from the Nova Uniao factory, and one of his top students - Ricardo Demente - won the 99+ division of the World Pro last year.

I will post more details too, closer to the event. But at this stage it will be at Boxing Works in the centre of Sydney, on the morning of Sunday the 20th. So all people from out of town, please make sure you book your flight home for the late afternoon!

Numbers will be limited to 50 people. If there is an overwhelming number of people, then we may look at doing a second one in the afternoon.

If you want to contact me to reserve a space, please go to my website and email me from the contact page.

Hope to see you there!

Hi guys,

firstly, thanks to sputniik for posting this here. as ever, time is my enemy at the moment and so I appreciate the help.

Just a bit more information:

Robinho is coming out to teach and train at SCJJA for the week and a half prior to the Abu Dhabi Pro, and leaves on the Monday after it. So he’s not really in town to do a “seminar tour” so much.

However, with competitors coming from interstate we thought we’d put on a public seminar at Boxing Works (so it’s easy for all to get to) on the day after. The seminar will be open to all gyms, not just Nova Uniao affiliates (no doubt we can show some different things that makes NU jiu-jitsu unique )

At this stage we’ll start at 10am, going through to about 1pm, and will be a jiu-jitsu gi seminar.

The cost will be $110, if booked & paid in advance. Probably a little more if paid on the day (if there is room). I think this is very good value considering just how good this guy is (see above links in first email).

Our coach Andre Pederneiras is quoted as saying that Robinho is his best black belt ... and I’ve been fortunate enough to be in the same room with Robinho, Shaolin and BJ Penn all training in the gi ... so that is some statement!

Robson does seminars all over the world, but this is his first time to Australia. He does take plenty of questions in them, as per this example here:

As for Melbourne—I have spoken to John Donehue about a seminar down there on the Thursday before (the 17th). I’m assuming the cost will be roughly the same, but I am unsure of the time or the number restrictions. I will post back more info later.

As per previous, if you have any questions, or wish to book; please contact me via http://scjja.com/contact.aspx or follow me http://twitter.com/scjja

I look forward to meeting some of you there!

Rodney
