David Meyer Private Instruction Available

David Meyer will be visiting the Emerald City (that's Seattle) in just a couple of weeks to offer a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar (gi and no-gi), and he just informed me that he will be available for a LIMITED number of small group private lessons (2-6 people)!  This is an EXCELLENT opportunity to sharpen any and all aspects of your grappling game, from one of the most accomplished grapplers to ever come out of America!

I have had the fortune to train with David privately on a couple of different occasions and I can honestly say his instruction is second to none.  I think he does great in a group setting, but his ability to pin point minor flaws, and loose gaps in your technique is second only to Rigan from what I have seen!

Not only is he technically sound, but he has a decent sense of humor (for a Vegan ;) and makes every training session fun and engaging.   Come train with one of BJJ's "Dirty Dozen" and walk away a better grappler.

For those still in the dark ages of BJJ let me shed some light on the dark horse of BJJ competition, David Meyer:

  • Co created BJJ America with the "Coach's Coach" John Will
  • Coach and training partner of Jake Shields / Gilbert Melendez / Diaz Brothers / Machado Brothers and a whole list of top notch grapplers in the LA and Bay Area's
  • Author of "Training For Competition" which remains the sole book on the subject to this day
  • Co Author of the pivotal book "Triangles" with Rigan Machado
  • First American to medal in the BJJ World Championships at Black Belt level
  • 2009 IBJJF American National Champion
  • 2009 IBJJF No Gi Black Belt Champion
  • 2010 IBJJF No GI Black Belt Champion
  • 2011 Pan Am's Black Belt Champion

Here is a great interview Stephan Kesting did with David where he offers some golden nuggets of information on training and competing.  If you have not listened to it, do it NOW (well worth the 90 minutes):
