A big day yesterday for Checkmat Wimbledon, as we hosted our first seminar; Chico Mendes came over to a very sunny SW19 to deliver a No Gi guard passing masterclass. A number of guys at the seminar are competing in No Gi events in April and May, so this was not to be missed.
Chico went over guard passing with a fine tooth comb, with lots of concepts and drills, with everyone coming away from the session with something to add to their bag of tricks.
Huge thanks to Paul Severn for supporting the event and bringing Chico over and Tiago Valente and Colin Nwadike and the Croydon team for their support too. Not forgetting Luiz Manxinha Ribeiro for his continuing help and support in making this happen :)

Another busy session last night, with lots of hard work and sweat from everyone on the mats; really pushing the guys that are competing next month, with plenty of specifics and shark tanks, with 100% commitment from everyone last night. The guys that aren't competing are stepping up and pushing the lads hard every session, so it's a win/win situation for everyone, as they all improve their Jiu Jitsu :)
