Being  in Canada for Arashi Do/Franco Behring’s fall symposium, Master Behring stopped in Toronto for a few extra days for some private lessons and classes before heading home to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  A last minute inquiry to when LondonBJJ had a class turned into Master making the trip to London on a Tuesday night.  This was his first trip to London to visit one of the newest schools in the Franco Behring Association. It was a pleasure to have him come to our dojo and teach a class. Thanks to Professor Marco Costa, again, for making the trip to London to support our club, and also to the Orangeville Dojo clan who always make the trip down to join in. Ousssssssss!  Follow the link below for a few photos from the evening class.

It was a pleasure to have recently trained with Master Behring at his dojo in Rio.  And I was even more pleased when he wanted to come down to our home in London.

So does Cameron.  Lol.  It looks like Cameron was getting in trouble but he wasn't.  It was just the way Master was conveying his teachings.  "Control."
