Couple awesome seminars with mentioning that are happening in London during August. First up, female BJJ black belt Gazzy Parman. Gazzy is a World no-gi champion, two time Pan American champion and an incredible 17 time Grapplers Quest Champion. She owns her own academy and is coming to London on the 8th August for a gi seminar at Rogers. It's open to everyone, cost is £40 on the door.






Next up, we have the evergreen Rubens 'Cobrinha' Charles on the 30th August. Again its a gi seminar and the cost is £40 before the 10th August, £50 thereafter. Cobrinha is a 4x World Champion, 2x World no gi champion, 4 time Pan American champion. Suffice to say, this one is gonna be awesome too.


Hmmmm, think I might mosey on down to both of these and hope I get the chance to interview these stars of the BJJ game!

I'm a white belt (two-stripe)... will seminars like this any use to me or will it all be over my head?

Just spoke to Gazzy she says the seminar will be perfect for beginners. Its all about body movements and concepts, hope this helps.

That is great, thanks for the quick response! What about Cobrinha's seminar? Are these kinds of things normally quite detailed and advanced?

Not sure about Cobrinha, I presume he'll cover basic stuff then move on to stuff he's used to win his many tournaments - which could be his trademark moves and might be a mix of technical or basic. Not sure really. either way, I think it would be beneficial.

Personally, being small and light myself I quite like the way Gazzy fights and I think she would offer some useful insights to help me improve but tyhis may or may not apply to you. Have a think, and email me if you need more info (see my About me page)

cheers
