On last Saturdaty (Dec 8), members from Alliance BJJ clubs gathered in Hamilton to roll and learn some interesting techniques. We had a total of 50 people training! The seminar was taught by the renowned BJJ instructor Romero Jacare Cavalcanti, who is also know for creating the most BJJ World Champions by using his amazing teaching skills and knowledge of the sport. We would also like to congradulate the two guys who got their newly coloured belts at the seminar. Congradulations to Patrick for achieving his purple belt and congradulations to Jason for achieving his black belt. Great work guys!
