May 2012 Round up - De La Riva Visit/Affiliation/David Jacobs & New CFS BJJ Black Belt

Hey Guys!!

Where to start? So many things happening but all good.

First of all, as most of you may know, Mestre De La Riva is currently in the UK teaching & training, sharing his knowledge with those lucky enough to get to see him. This was his second trip to the UK organised jointly by Nick Brooks of Mill Hill BJJ and myself.

De La Riva will be teaching a seminar this weekend on Sunday 3rd June at SENI and will of course be present for the De La Riva pro cup too.

On Sunday he taught a seminar at a packed Mill Hill Dojo with 11 Blackbelts in attendance including his own student Leo Specterow 4th Degree BB who travelled with thim. There was also a strong contingent from France.

 At the seminar, history was made for our growing team, when De La Riva allowed me to join him in tying the BLACK BELT round the waist of my friend, training partner and student Andy Nugent. A very well deserved promotion and in due course I propose to do a write up about him. Andy heads CFS BJJ Letchworth.

On Monday 28th May, students at HQ were treated to a master class from the master himself and all took away their own personal experiences

De La Riva also visited Arlans Siqueira's school in Edmonton and was VERY well received by them.

We will be having our bi-annual grading on Sunday 10th June and the guest instructor will be my friend and CFS BJJ Technical Director David Jacobs (Washington, USA) who will be bringing his wealth of experience to us then.

More updates to follow soon and will there be De La Riva techniques of the month??? Hell yeah!!!
