Wow! That’s all I can say about that seminar.  Judo, stand up, ground work, 3 black belts on the mats, 3 and a half hours of pure martial arts amazingness! Oussssss!  Thank you Professor Shah for coming to London BJJ and bringing two of Franco Behring’s distinguished Black Belts, Prof. Marco Costa and Prof. “Papi Loco”.  It was a treat for those who came out.  Click through for photos from the seminar.

First and formost I have to give respect to Professor Shah Franco for coming to London BJJ.  It was an honour to have you and you're welcome back anytime.  Oussss!

Prof. Shah Started the seminar with some shadow boxing, pummeling and judo and then moved to a really cool foot work drill that was applicable to striking arts as well and grappling arts.  Good lesson.  After all, fights always start of the feet, right?

The drill was a bit like a dance at first and caused a lot of laughs as it was a little perplexing to get the hang of.

We moved on to some self defense concepts.  Can you spot it?  If not, maybe come try out a class or two. ;)

I don't remember Prof. Shah showing any rubber guard techniques but Aidan manages to sneak it in.

Sometimes the simplest things make all the difference.  Like asking, where are the hips?  Doesn't make sense?  Maybe you should come try a class or two.  ;)
