Rener Gracie Seminar - September 17, 2016

June 29, 2016

Triple Threat Mastery Seminar (Saturday, September 17 from 9:00-11:00am)
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, Rener will teach you how to use the "Triple Threat" approach (armlocks, chokes, and triangles in combination) to create an unstoppable back mount attack sequence!

Triangle Mastery Seminar (Saturday, September 17 from 11:30-1:30pm)
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, Rener 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!

Guillotine Mastery No-Gi Seminar (Saturday, September 17 from 2:30-4:30pm)
Rener is always challenging himself to add new "systems of attack" to his offensive arsenal. The latest revolution in his personal jiu-jitsu journey is the Guillotine Choke. In less than two months, Rener went from not catching a single Guillotine, to catching every training partner regardless of belt level. In this new Mastery Seminar, Rener will teach you the breakthrough Guillotine tips, tricks, and setups that he wishes someone would have taught him 10 years ago! Own the chin, own the choke!

Street Defense Mastery Seminar (Saturday, September 17 from 5:00-7:00pm)
There is a huge difference between "sport jiu-jitsu" and "street jiu-jitsu." In real fight, there is no referee, weight class, or time limit and your opponent will be trying to punch a hole in your face. In this seminar, Rener will be teaching you the most important universal street defense principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and then they will show you very specific examples of how to apply the principles from every position in the fight. If you could only take one jiu-jitsu seminar for the rest of your life, this would be the one!
