***This is from Sue: If you have children under the age of 13 and they do jiu jitsu and they want to go to the Michelle Nicolini seminar I have a deal for you. If any girl under 13yrs old brings their own training partner (13yr and under) they can pay 65$ for both. This way they have someone to work with at the seminar and it is cheeper for the younger girls to get to train with Michelle too. Don't miss this seminar it will be well worth your time and money. See you soon.
The ADCC 2011 Semi finals are looking hot. From Nottingham, England we've seen some great fights and match-ups you won't see anywhere else. Next we have the Absolute division and Renzo Gracie and Mario Sperry hit the mat in their Superfight prior to the Absolute finals. Here's a run-down on the fights remaining:
Rafael Mendes x Robson Moura Rubens "Cobrinha" x Jeff Glover
This fight is between the last ADCC's super-fight champion Ronaldo Souza vs the last ADCC's absolute champion Braulio Estima. Braulio is considered the local favorite having his ties to England, but Jacare has come off his recent loss to Luke Rockhold in Strikeforce.
After a bit of play back and forth, and Estima atempt at an arm drag to single leg which got Jacare on his back and from which he recovered back to his feet. Looked like Jacare was saving his energy for the long game while Braulio is keeping active. BE into the butterfly guard, with now Jacare trying to pass, Estima tries a footlack and Jacare escapes.
Mendes, Hall, and Corinha take the Mat at the ADCC
ADCC are off to a great start with the 66KG weight class.
In an uneventful match, Justin Radar won over Timo-Juhani Hiryikangas.
Rafael Mendes and Bruno Frazatto faced each other on the mat. Off the mat as training partners they proved just as good for a match up. Inevitably the 50/50 appeared with rampant footlocks, Mendes comes out on top with back control in points.
It's time for the ADCC 2011 in England on September 24th and 25th.
