Rodrigo Cavaca BJJ Seminar Report and pics- July 1st 2017

Kyuzo was delighted to host one of the best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminars we’ve ever had the pleasure of having with Black Belt World Champion Rodrigo Cavaca.

Cavaca was making a return visit tot he gym having been here in 2015, and it was an incredibly informative time then as it was now.

We started with some excellent high pressure guard passing techniques, using a knee-slice style pass with some details to go straight to the opponent’s back position. Some of the details Cavaca showed here were amazing, using pressure from your own head to get behind the opponent was the key element, and then Cavaca showed that quick and slick back takes aren’t just for the little guys!

Next we moved on to a Closed Guard sequence using your opponent’s lapel. If moving quickly to the back was a race to beat your opponent, then this sequence was the equivalent of shutting them down completely and using your control to stop them in their tracks. Again, awesome, new techniques!

Next up was what can only be described as the pain! Cavaca is renowned for his footlock submissions, and he has finely crafted these over the years to create some of the best (worst for your opponent) pressures in the game. Our photographer Ce took some hilarious shots of the submissions in action, not all of them are staged!!! Check them out below.

Finally, we rolled, and Cavaca took the time to do a 3 minute round with everyone in attendance. An education in itself!

We’d like to thank Rodrigo for taking the time to visit Kyuzo, and for his superb teaching!
