Jacare Coming to the PAC NW

Founder of Alliance BJJ, one of only five students to be promoted to black belt by Rolls Gracie before his passing, and one of the few individuals who can boast nearly 4 decades, DECADES, on the mat.... Romero "Jacare" Calvacanti will be in Oregon this weekend for a special seminar that you do not want to miss!

I have had the fortune to train with a handful of red-black belts in my short time in BJJ (Rigan Machado / Carlos Machado / JJ Machado / Fabio Santos) and I cherish the lessons from the "old guard" as they have forgotten more about grappling then I will ever know.  I have wanted to train with Jacare for many, many years and finally I have the opportunity to make it happen as one of his brown belts has opened up Alliance Oregon which means only one thing.... MUCH tougher competition to come at the local tournament scene!

Here is some rare footage of Jacare rolling:
