August 20 – 21 in California: Grappler’s Retreat Weekend Training Camp
The training camp will be headed by Nic Gregoriades. Nic was the first person to be awarded the Black Belt by the legendary Roger Gracie. In addition to being a tremendously skilled grappler, Nic is also widely regarded as one of the outstanding jiu-jitsu instructors contributing to the art today. He is the founder of the popular BJJ movement The Jiu-Jitsu Brotherhood, a global community of BJJ practitioners who are united by a desire to share and learn by transcending the inherent limits of the ‘my school / team is best’ mentality. It was formed to help people remember that the art is about uniting people, not dividing them.
Other instructors present will include Alex Aftandilians (Gokor’s Team Hayastan) & Antonio Almeida (Brazilian Top Team).
Grappler’s Retreat hosts weekend training retreats in the summer and fall, bringing grapplers of different teams and affiliations to train and learn together under the same roof.
