Royce Gracie Kids & Adult Seminar Photos


Almost 90 students from several locations in the Bay Area came to train with the Legend of the Octogon! We had students from San Mateo, Oak Grove, Rocklin, Stockton, Livermore and locals cities. It's always a great time on the mat with Royce. This time he also taught a kids class. He showed them techniques to defend against punches, takedowns and stabilizing dominant positions on the ground. At the end he had the kids "play" Jiu-Jitsu with fun fighting games, they had a blast!!

The adults seminar ran right after the Kids, for 2 hours. We worked on several footlocks set ups and lapel chokes from side control. In addition he made the class work on agility drills to improve everyone's submission attacks and transitions. If you didn't make it last weekend, we hope to see you next time he comes around. Thanks all who participated, click on the photo below to view full album!
