Some of the Grappling Mastery Team recently participated in a BJJ Open Mat Session in Clermont, Florida this Independence Day Weekend. Some other teams that participated were Gracie Barra Orlando, Gracie Barra Clermont (Ogden BJJ), and Fight Sports Clermont (Xtreme Gracie). Some impromptu techniques were taught by BJJ Black Belts, Professor Brian Ruscio (Grappling Mastery), 3rd Degree Professor Dave Ogden (Gracie Barra Clermont), and 6th Degree BJJ Master Marcio Simas (Gracie Barra Orlando) at the request of the group. Afterward we had some rolling sessions with the members of the other teams. It was a fun event in the spirit of learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We are all brothers and sisters of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’s great that we can all get together and share ideas and techniques no matter what school we train at. The next BJJ Open Mat will be held at Grappling Mastery!
This is the second time that Grappling Mastery and Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu have teamed up to share BJJ Techniques with anyone who wanted to attend. Previously Professor Brian Ruscio of Grappling Mastery and Gracie Barra held a seminar for charity in Kissimmee, Florida with a total of 7 Black Belts.
