"Jiu-Jitsu helps me in every day life"


It's pushed me to be healthier and more active. It's also helped me to "slow down" and strategize a little better, even in day to day challenges.     Lani Stover

Benefits of attending a seminar

Hi Team,

I want to share with you some important benefits of attending a Jiu-Jitsu Seminar. 

1. Solid World Class Techniques

You or your child may be interested in some flashy techniques that are on youtube. I can assure you that these moves are indeed flashy but are not practical for real world training. The techniques you will learn at a seminar are time tested and will work a high percentage of the time. 

2. High Level Instruction

As part of the Robson Moura Nations United Association we have access to high level Black Belts that want to take your game to the next level. This access allows you to train one on one with the best in the business. When we bring these Professors in you do not want to miss it.

3. Q and A

A portion of seminars is devoted to questions and answers. You can get practical advice along with a scenario and technique to greatly improve your quality of Jiu-Jitsu.


It is an honor to earn a promotion in Jiu-Jitsu. The journey is long and sometimes takes months or even years to get a promotion. Seminars are a special time when your hard work is finally rewarded. While your belt only holds your gi together, there is something magical that happens when a piece of athletic tape is put on it or a whole new color belt altogether. While I can promote most students there are standards that are set that prevent me from promoting higher belts. Only Black Belts can do this. When a Black Belt gives a seminar, you want to be there!

This Saturday we welcome 3rd Degree Black Belt Professor Bobby Hughes 11 AM to 1 PM Make plans today to attend this special event. You can register online at the link provided or at the studio. All students are highly encouraged to attend. 


See you on the mats,

Coach Wallace
