We are just coming back down to earth after an amazing weekend with my instructor and 7x world champion Xande Ribeiro. Xande just spent what can only be described as a Jiu-Jitsu immersion here in Colorado. We started off with an awesome class up at Catalyst BJJ | Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu - Windsor on Friday. Then Saturday was at Jubera Jiu Jitsu | Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu - Denver for 3 seminars. Then we finished off with a Sunday open mat where he trained for about a dozen rounds with the guys. Definitely filled to the brim with some awesome new details for defending and attacking from the guard and passing the guard. We will get some more great pictures up soon.
It has been an amazing year of hosting the top talent in the world and I want to thank Xande again for the effort that he put into our guys. Also best of luck to him as he goes to Japan this coming weekend to compete against world champion Felipe Pena.
This week we will be going over the mount position, both escaping and attacking in Fundamentals. In the advanced class we will be covering passing drills and attacks from side control. The youth classes will be going over the bullfighter pass and talking about respect.
Here is a video of Saulo rocking the weave pass in the 2000 mundials.
This week my instructor Xande Ribeiro 7 time black belt world champion and arguably the best BJJ competitor of all time is coming to teach three seminars at Jubera Jiu-Jitsu | Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu - Denver.

Below is a highlight video of his:
Note that you can sign up for 1 to 3 sessions on Saturday and get the Sunday session included so it is even a better deal than a usual one day seminar, plus with multiple sessions we expect to have smaller class sizes for each session.
The white belt drills class has been an awesome addition to the schedule with a nice chance for white belts to work on their basic solo movements and submissions before jumping in the all level class.
Also our new t-shirts are in stock and have been flying off the shelves. They are priced at $25 or $20 if you also get our patch set in preparation for the Xande seminar.
Our youth athletes are talking about respect. The little samurais are working on opening up the guard and the samurais are working on the scissor sweep. The all levels will continue to work on our knee shield to underhook/omoplata and x-guard.
We have our signup sheet for 7x Black Belt World Champion and my instructor Xande Ribeiro! Xande won his most recent world championship in 2015 as the oldest competitor to win his division. This year he has continued to compete beating notables like Erbeth Santos.
This event is October 15th and 16th (two weekends from now). Note that you can sign up for 1 to 3 sessions on Saturday and get the Sunday session included so it is even a better deal than a usual one day seminar, plus with multiple sessions we expect to have smaller class sizes for each session.

Again our class schedule has added two awesome classes with a 4th Samurai class on Thursday. Now our 8+ year olds can train M-Th with a Sunday open mat as well.
Also our white belts added a drills class to go over the warm ups and submissions that they will be using all the time.
Our Fundamentals and Samurai will be warming up with our escapes and our scissor sweep. The all levels will be going over our knee shield attacks. The advanced will be going over passing.
