Renato (Babalu) Sobral Seminar

It was an honor to have Renato Sobral visit our school yesterday and share some techniques with us. We worked on several D’arce chokes and half guard pass strategies. It was great to have Babalu work with our team and talk with us about jiu-jitsu, our school, and the Gracie Barra traditions. We are very grateful that Professor Sobral was able to take some of his precious time to make an extraordinary day for us.
