Mestre Mauricio Gomes came to Mill Hill tonight to provide a seminar. Unfortunately I cricked my neck over the weekend so couldn't take part. There is nothing worse than being injured and having to watch BJJ on the sidelines. Grrrrr!
Anyway, how does one explain who Mauricio is in one sentence? Let me try with this: one of the original Rolls Gracie 'famous five', undefeated in all competitions, father of Roger Gracie and the person who kick started BJJ in the UK and made it the phenom that it is today.
Sound important enough? You bet.
Anyway, since I did not take part, I took photos, here are some - look out for his excruciatingly painful trademark technique simply referred to as 'knee on chest'. Ouch!
