March 6, 2012

Las Vegas, NV -- July 6-7, 2012

This year, Ralek Gracie has been invited to teach four special Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Seminars at the UFC Fan Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 6-7, 2012, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Whether you are brand new to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu or you are a black belt looking to take your understanding to the next level, you won't want to miss these four special seminars with the third generation Gracie Jiu-Jitsu master, Ralek Gracie.

Seminar 1: Fri., July 6 @ 11am-1pm (Gracie Self-defense 101)
Seminar 2: Fri., July 6 @ 3pm-5pm (Mount Submission Mastery)
Seminar 3: Sat., July 7 @ 11am-1pm (Back Mount Submission Mastery)
Seminar 4: Sat., July 7 @ 3pm-5pm (Triangle Choke Mastery)

Seminar 1: Gracie Self-Defense 101 (Register Now)
If you're new to jiu-jitsu, this seminar is for you. Upon completing this 2-hour seminar, you will have learned the six most important techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and you will have the foundation needed to participate in the remaining three Gracie Jiu-Jitsu seminars scheduled for the UFC Fan Expo. If you are an experienced jiu-jitsu practitioner, come to this seminar to learn the safest, yet most productive way to introduce someone to the gentle more.

Seminar 2: Mount Submission Mastery (Register Now)
The "mount" is one of the best positions you can achieve in a fight. But getting there is one thing, finishing the fight is another. In this seminar, Ralek will teach you how to use proven control strategies and the most dynamic no-gi submission sequences to demoralize and defeat your opponent regardless of their size.

Seminar 3: Back Mount Submission Mastery (Register Now)
Although the back mount is widely accepted as the most dominant position in the fight, winning from this position is an arduous task, especially if your opponent is trained in jiu-jitsu. In this seminar, Ralek will teach you how to use the "Triple Threat" approach (armlocks, chokes, and triangles in combination) to create an unstoppable back mount attack sequence!

Seminar 4: Triangle Choke Mastery (Register Now)
Ever since Royce Gracie used it to defeat Dan Severn in UFC 4, the Triangle Choke has become one of the most famous techniques in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. In this seminar, Ralek will teach you the most effective setup variations, control strategies, and finishing options for this devastating submission. In addition, he will share the secret to finishing the Triangle Choke on MUCH larger opponents! No matter what level you are, this seminar will take your Triangle Choke to the next level!

Certificate of Completion: If you participate in all four seminars, you will receive an Authentic Gracie Academy Certificate acknowledging your completion of 8 hours of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Training with Professor Ralek Gracie.

Tuition: Each UFC Fan Expo seminar can be purchased individually for $75 or you can purchase all four seminars for $300 and get a free large embroidered Gracie Gi Patch as well as an Authentic Gracie Academy Certificate upon completion of the seminars. To register for all four seminars, Click Here.

Attire: All four seminars will be no-gi seminars. You are allowed to wear a gi if you'd like, but none of the techniques will be gi reliant. For sanitary reasons, no tank tops or cut-off t-shirts will be allowed. Rash guards or t-shirts (short or long sleeves) can be worn along with gi pants or fight shorts.

Experience Levels: All seminars are open to all experience levels from novice to advanced. Ralek's teaching style is so clear and easy-to-follow that even someone with no experience can come attend the seminars and not feel overwhelmed or left behind. On the other hand, his knowledge is so profound that even the most advanced jiu-jitsu practitioners will leave each seminar with a much deeper understanding of the principles and techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
