It’s a little over due, but after getting a virus on my computer, then a back-up, format and reinstall of my computer system, I’ve finally gotten around to posting the pictures from Professor Marco Costa’s visit to London BJJ. Sorry for the delay.

Franco Behring members from London, Orangeville and Toronto, as well as a few guests from other London area BJJ clubs, were present for a great seminar on Jan 2nd, 2010. Professor Marco went over some great drills for sport competition as well as some basic fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Words can’t really explain what he is like as an instructor. You’ll have to come out to the next seminar to really understand why they call him “The Encyclopedia”. Thank you Professor for your continued support of London BJJ! See you on the mats! Namaste. Ossssssssss!

Professor explained the ideas of getting your grips and then showed some techniques when you get the grips you want as well as the counters to those techniques.  Very informative.

Sen is usually the smallest person on the mats but there was finally someone his own size to roll with.  I think he took advantage of the situation though.  Roya is under there somewhere!  lol.

Roya took her frustrations out on Alex though.  Aha ha ha!  Just joking!  Alex is posing for this pic.

And Sen got thrown back into the mix with the tallest guy in the room.  Noticed Sen is standing and Johnny is sitting, but they seem to be the same height.  Sen is still taking no prisoners though.  lol.
