Our Seminar with Rodrigo Pagani

So last night we had a seminar with Black Belt/Head of the Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu Association in Brazil/really nice guy Rodrigo Pagani, and in short, it was pretty great. The techniques he taught weren’t terribly fancy with almost superfluous movements, and definitely made sense, which was a nice middle of the road sort of approach: something that the higher belts could sink their teeth into and learn, while the lower belts could follow along, and not feel like they were just dropped into the middle of an advanced algebra class when they just mastered addition and subtraction.

Pagani’s (current) signature guard, the curu curu guard sounds like it’s going to be super crazy and overly fancy (like Berimbolo part 2, Electric Boogaloo) but rather still had that same style of staying fairly efficient and still giving you a lot of options to counter a variety of possible reactions from your opponent.

So, overall it was a great seminar, and I’m really looking forward to working on some of the stuff he showed us.
