ok so about 3 weeks ago, i got to train with relson gracie for two nights in a seminar. it was a seminar open to our school only, we're an affiliate, and it was only about 12 to 15 guys there. it was perfect as far as number of students and amount of instruction. he taught some sweet self defense stuff, some nhb stuff, and some sport bjj stuff too... if you've never trained with him before, he's unreal. he has flexibility in his body like i've never seen before. in fact, i'm going out on a limb here and i'm going to say that he has no cartilage in his knees. he couldn't, and if you've trained with him before you'd know what i am talking about... anyways, so i got that seminar three weeks ago, and this friday i have a private with luiz palhares, 6th degree bb under rickson... he's giving a seminar at our school, but i'll be out of town so i'm getting a private instead... he's not asking much either... i am thrilled! anyone here ever trained with palhares before? what's he like?
