The other weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Oregon for the 1st time. It was amazing. Truly a slice of heaven with so much stunning nature.
My 1st stop was at Lazy Lover headquarters in Portland to teach a women's workshops. Lazy Lover is an awesome clothing brand that makes top notch training and street wear. I taught spider guard techniques and concepts that work well for women. We also touched on some Q&A mostly about empowerment stuff.
My next stop was in Bend where I taught a co ed seminar at Clarke's University of Martial Arts. And the following day I taught a small women's workshops. The ladies got to work on grip breaks and guard recovery. It was so amazing to see so many men on the mat, once again.. a real sign of how women's BJJ is progressing.
Alex one of the ladies was also awarded her purple belt and I was so happy to be present for it! It so so great to see us all move up the ranks!
Thank you Almine, Prof. Ryan and TK for making this all possible. : #jiujitsufamily
