We had an amazing time at this year's first Summer Immersion Camp. People drove and flew in from all over the world to attend the 5 day event. This video showcases many of the activities that took place at the camp. Jiu Jitsu, water activities, lots of laughs and fresh Maine lobster. Sorry you missed it, there is always next year!
Rickson Gracie recently sat down with our friends at BJJ Hacks and shared his thoughts on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitions, stalling, approaches to training, modern MMA and what training means to him.
If you're in the New England area this weekend you should make plans to join us at the North Woods Escape! Enjoy a long weekend of training, white water rafting, paintball, cookouts, and good old fashioned Maine camping fun!
When we travel for the newsletter it’s always fun to shoot video and learn the new techniques. But a lot of the time the best part of the trip happens off camera.
