In response to several messages by parents regarding details of the event we are distributing this for your information.
By now you have heard about this Sunday, May 5th, visit by Royce Gracie! This is a wonderful chance for your child to learn from Jeff’s instructor and a true living legend in the world of martial arts!
The Who: Royce Gracie is the son of Grandmaster Helio Gracie, founder of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. His training in Jiu-Jitsu began at a very early age as a series of games and playtime with his father. Royce received his blue belt at age 16 and was promoted to black belt at 18. Royce made his name known to the world when he competed in the first ever UFC event in 1993. Despite being “the little guy in the gi”; his opponents consistently outweighing him by 50 pounds or more, Royce defeated opponent after opponent using the exact techniques taught to him by his father. The same exact techniques taught to your children today. Royce went on to win 3 UFC titles and today is the only man in the history of no holds barred matches to successfully defeat four opponents in one night. Today Royce is privileged to spread the techniques perfected by his father all over the world.
The When: Sunday, May 5th, 2013 from 1030am to 1130am
The Cost: Only $35!
Additional Details: This is an open the public event; any child from any dojo may attend!
