Smoke Serpent Music Video Premiere A Success!

December 9th, 2011 In News | Comments Off

 

Last nights’ event was a complete success with Smoke Serpent premiering their music video for the song “Jiu Jitsu” at Dim Mak Studios (formerly cinespace). The entire room was filled with 10th Planeteers from 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Van Nuys, HQ, Riverside, and Vista! Whereas most places you would hear conversation of work, family, and the holidays, last night was all about jiu jitsu, mma, and gym talk. Which ultimately led up to the premiere before the premiere. I’m talking about Eddie Bravo’s Mastering The Twister DVD which is set for 2012! A big thanks to everyone that showed up last night, Steve Moreno of Melee Fightgear, and Six Digits Productions. 2012 is going to be our year!

There Can Only Be One: Denny”300″ Prokopos

March 18th, 2010 In Interviews | 1 Comment

Denny “300″ Prokopos will be a part of Jiu Jitsu history for a long time. He is the first person awarded a Black belt by Eddie Bravo. When Eddie first started teaching the Rubber Guard people were writing it off. They said it was not very effective or practical. Nevertheless Eddie Bravo won over a lot of students across the planet. Many are highly skilled. Many medal in various tournaments. Yet one proud Greek student, Denny “300″ Prokopos soaked up the game at an insane pace. He moved ahead with a work ethic thats hard to match. At the end of the day, Eddie Bravo could only award ONE man the first Black Belt in his system. This is his story.

Conor Heun @ Grapplers X tournament Feb 14, 2010

March 15th, 2010 In Tournaments | 4 Comments

I’d love to see Conor do more grappling tournaments. He’s an amazing competitor.

“Here is my first match back in competition since my knee surgery. It was at the Grapplers X tournament in Long Beach on Feb 14, 2010. I set up my takedowns off of the Russian 2-on-1 or the baseball grip 2-on-1. The first take down is a Japanese Double when he stands up too straight, anticipating the tie up. The second is a submarine throw of of the Russian with the “Hurricane Grip”. If you are interested in learning these techniques I am available for Private Lessons. Please e-mail me or comment for info.”

In part three of this FIGHT! Life series, Bravo, who arrived in Sao Paolo, Brazil as a brown belt surrounded by black-belt masters, recounts his now-legendary fight with Royler Gracie, the undisputed top dog in the sport who had never given up a single point in his career.
