A member of the world-famous fighting family, the Gracies of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will be offering a seminar in the fighting style that launched the MMA/UFC phenomena. Royler Gracie, world champion Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts Champion, will be teaching the ground fighting tactics and techniques of Gracie Jiu Jitsu at a limited-space seminar on Saturday October 27, 2012 from 10:00am to 1:00pm, hosted by Basulto Academy of Defense, located in downtown Waynesville.
Grace Jiu Jitsu is easily distinguished from other martial arts by its unique emphasis on grappling or wrestling opponents to the ground and using painful joint-locks or chokes to submit them. “When the Gracie family helped create the Ultimate Fighting Championships in 1993, their goal was to showcase the effectiveness of their martial art,” says Armando Basulto, chief instructor at Basulto Academy of Defense. “Now, almost 20 year later, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) has become the fastest growing sport in the world and Gracie Jiu Jitsu started that ball rolling.”
Basulto Academy of Defense (Gracie North Carolina) is the official North Carolina representative for the Gracie Humaitá Competition Team and has won numerous Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Grappling championships across the state and the Southeast.
Seminar host Armando Basulto is a Professor of Gracie Jiu Jitsu and holds a Black Belt directly from Royler Gracie.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu and MMA Classes are offered at the Basulto Academy of Defense, located at GroundSwell Fitness 218 Branner Ave. Downtown Waynesville. For more information visit www.wncbjj.com or call 828-230-5056.
