It was an honor to have Professor Caio in town and on our mats, as he taught an amazing Guard Passing Seminar this past Saturday. We had nearly 50 practitioners of every belt level in attendance, all excited to learn the techniques that made Professor a 12-time World Champion.
He discussed some simple principles of hip control that unlocked the high-level techniques. Once he covered the basic concepts that connected the different passing options available, everyone in attendance was executing the moves without a problem. He referenced his match at F2W 146 and also our Fundamental Curriculum where he applied the same techniques he was teaching to us.
The Seminar concluded as we celebrated a big day for our teammates at Sloth BJJ in Euless as well, as Professor Nathan Hallford promoted his first Black Belt, Mr Chris Gray! Congrats, gentlemen!
