Welcome to the Defensive Jiu-Jitsu Seminar with renowned Gracie Barra Professor Eduardo de Lima.
During this 2h30m event, we will go over some of the most effective defensive strategies and mindset used in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We will study common defensive situations such as full-mount, side-mount and back. The goal of the seminar is to help you build the skills and confidence to turn adversities into advantages.
Professor Eduardo de Lima is a fourth degree Gracie Barra Black Belt who has been training under Master Carlos Gracie Jr. since 1989. He was part of the team of instructors who led the first Gracie Barra school together with Master Carlos back in the 1990s. Back in 1994 and 1995 is was in charge of the teens program and became the main teacher of our Head Instructor Professor Flavio Almeida.
“Prof. Eduardo is above all things an amazing human being. I learned a great deal from him. On the mats he taught me that in Jiu-Jitsu, safety precedes attack and that there is as much fun and challenge in defenses and escapes than there is in pressuring for attack. Off the mats, he taught us the value of discipline and preparation helping us with the mindset and training for many competitions” – Prof. Flavio Almeida
