Though I have not personally trained with him, I have heard nothing but positive things about Rener Gracie and his teaching style! I just got word of this extremely rare opportunity for grapplers in the Pacific NW to get in on Rener's first ever No Gi Jiu Jitsu Mastery Camp to be held in Vanderhoof, BC. September 8-9, 2012.
WTF is Vanderhoof, BC. you ask?? I too had to look it up... about a 13 hour drive north of Seattle, WA. Found on Can. 16 just west of Prince George, Rener is opening this first no gi seminar to any and all levels, but space is limited.
For those of you contemplating driving up I must admit it is one of the most beautiful places in North America. The wife and I took a 2 week trip through BC and toured the Canadian Rockies on both the Alberta side as well as British Columbia side, and it will remain one of the most gorgeous journeys I have ever been on. September will be a perfect time for traveling through there too!
So check out the info on the camp below, and do me a solid and vote on the poll to your right ----->
