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.

Great group of BJJ practitioners!  Osssssss!

Great group of BJJ practitioners! Osssssss!

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!

Members from Family Karate, The Orangeville Dojo and London BJJ With Professor Francis Abramson. Ossssss!

It was a busy couple of weeks filled with BJJ.  With the instructors weekend on November 7 & 8, and the Franco Behring Symposium the following weekend, London BJJ managed to find the time to have Professor Francis Abramson visit Family Karate’s dojo for a BJJ and Grappling seminar.  Special thanks go out to the group from the Orangeville Dojo who made the drive to London for the seminar.  All who attended loved it and we’d all love to have you back Professor!  Ossssssss!  Click the thumbnails for a larger view of the photos.

Team Franco Behring. Or maybe Army is a better term? Ossssssss!

The Orangeville Dojo was host to the Fall Franco Behring Symposium.  Wow! That is all I can say. Every time Master Behring comes from Brazil and all the clubs within the Franco Behring Association get together as one team, I fall in love with bjj a little bit more. The funny thing is, it seems I couldn’t love it more, but it keeps happening.  With such great people, starting with Master Behring and Professor Franco, and including all the black belt professors, Marco Costa, Papi Loco, Monkey, Francis Abramson, and all the bjj practitioners from white to brown belt, it’s no wonder it keeps happening.  Congrats to the London BJJ students who received a promotion or stripes From Master Behring and Professor Franco. I am proud of all the London BJJ students and their accomplishments. Keep training hard and you’ll reap the rewards.  Here are a few photos from the event.
