Mission given means mission accomplished!
Saturday was a great day at BJJ Academy, it seemed like we were in Brazil! Outside the sun was shining and inside our Dojo were a great bunch of students learning straight from the source, 3x World Champion Vitor Shaolin. Teaching the best of the gentle art and answering all the student’s questions, Vitor also had the time to share the facts and history of his career back in Japan, USA and Brazil… It was brilliant!
At the end of the seminar our team got together once again and headed to Preto Brazilian Steakhouse, where we finished our day having an authentic Brazilian BBQ. Well done to everyone who made it, this encouragement helps us to keep bringing legends of our sport to train with you and provide you with great experiences. We at BJJ Academy hope everyone enjoyed the seminar and we are looking forward for the next one. Who do you want us to bring next?!
