I just got news that Rigan Machado will be giving a seminar on January 30th here in Utah. He is a 8th degree black belt and nephew of Helio Gracie. He was the first black belt awarded by Carlos Gracie Jr. I’m really excited to go. I am still feeling bad that I miss out on Andre Galvao when he came to Unified. I won’t be missing this one. Here are the full details:
UCTC in Kearns, UT (4095 West 4715) at 1pm (should last 3 hours). Cost $50.
KneeOnBelly.com quotes BJ Penn as saying "’Training with Rigan Machado was definitely an experience that changed my life. At one time, I definitely think he was the greatest grappler that walked the earth."
It should be really good. I will of course blog about it after it is over and share any pictures or video that I am able to get.
