A couple of weeks ago I taught a series of seminars in Chicago. I was blessed to have Giselle Villasenor photograph of my events at Serafin Jiu Jitsu Academy. Her works shows her passion for BJJ and photography. She has a skill for capturing the moment, whether it be teaching, competing or learning.

I love that more entrepreneurial women are sharing their skills in BJJ, whether it be as a professor, a referee, a photographer etc and shining. All of us women have something offer in this community an the more we showcase our skills and shine, collectively the more amazing this will BJJ community will be and the more we will thrive. #empoweredwomen #shinetogether .

The Master Worlds Training Camp starts this weekend!!! The focus of the camp is to polish your A game. To work on a game plan, strategy, guard pulls, take downs, grip breaks, point system.. all the while the athlettes are getting acclimated here in Las Vegas. I will also be showing techniques that work really well for women and covering topics such as nutrition and weight cutting.

It is not too late to book your spot for the weekend, Monday and Tuesday mornings. So far there will be such an interesting mix of people from all over the world, all levels and all ages.
