What do I need to do to reserve a seat?

I need to get on the ball and get some plane tickets, but I want to secure a spot first.

We are... We will have info for people to send donations too.

Gary is a good guy who has made a lot of friends judging by all the people jumping on board to help-out.

Shen, I heard rumors that you will be demonstrating a traditional iron fan kata in full kimono and face paint. Is there any truth to this?

^ I can neither confirm nor deny... but I didn't just spend $400 on a pair of traditional "Geta" sandals for nothing.

The only pass currently for sale is a special $55 ALL-DAY Pass.

That entitles you to go to any and all seminars. It's going to be a FULL day, so pace yourself --pick the seminars you want. You can always rest, grab some lunch then come back for other seminars later in the day. Or, you can also take a break and visit the Gracie Museum, which is in the building.

As the seminar gets closer, and we have the schedule set, we will offer half-day passes either for Block "A" (morning) or Block "B" (afternoon).

Please remember this is a CHARITY event, so if you CAN afford an "all day pass" please get one! As far as value, personally, I don't recall ever seeing a seminar with this many high-quality teachers for such a price.

Questions...? Message or email me!

12 -

Why yes it is, random internet poster whom I have never had contact with before.



Seriously though...

11 seminars for $55 works out to $5.00 per seminar!!

FIVE DOLLARS for a seminar with Ryron Gracie

FIVE DOLLARS for a seminar with Caique

Five DOLLARS for a seminar with Joao Assis

Etc, etc, etc.


This seminar is such an absurdly good value it borders on insult. --So take advantage of it!!!

Did a facebook page get setup for this yet? If not, I'll help out, and start getting the word out on Bullshido, Reddit, etc.

Anthony - Did a facebook page get setup for this yet? If not, I'll help out, and start getting the word out on Bullshido, Reddit, etc.

No Facebook page yet --though someone is doing one. --We don't have the graphics for it done yet.

We're still a little far out. But in the next couple weeks we will start to really promote it and would CERTAINLY appreciate your help! --and the help of anyone else willing to get the word out.

We're just giving a little "head's up" early to our Atama BJJ Forum family.
