    Hello people, I put up a post on my blog Jiujitsukingdom's Blog asking what people would like to learn most from Rickson Gracie given the opportunity to ask. Rickson will be doing a few seminars in Australia in November which I will be attending and hope to ask some questions at each and hopefully maybe even do a mini interview if he is interested in sharing his some of his vast experience and knowledge!

    So please feel free to leave a comment on my blog with any serious questions for the master and I will ask try to ask a few of them. I'm so excited and cant wait for this fantastic opportunity! Oh and dont worry, I'll do a thorough write up after each seminar!

    Kind Regards
    Felipe

    Since it has been left to guesswork and conjecture on various forums, it would be nice to get an explanation of exactly how his way of shrimping differs from the commonly practiced way.

    Rickson is notorious for criticising peoples Jiujitsu in MMA and everyone asks him what he thinks of Nogueira, Werdum ect ect.

    So my question is, can you ask who he thinks uses their BJJ the best in MMA? Not necessarily who has the best, but who uses it closest to his philosophy.

    I thought Rickson was asking all seminar participants to keep the contents secret in his recent ones.

    I could be wrong, but I was at least under the perception that he would not look very kindly on you posting the details of the seminar after the fact.

    I have heard his stance on instructionals & he seems to be against any type of Jiu Jitsu instruction that doesn't have an instructor there, I heard this stuff from when the Gracie University idea was discussed.

    Ask him if he ever plans on releasing an instructional on BJJ. Similar to Gracie University but his own opinion of what it takes to be a Blue Belt, Purple Belt, Brown Belt & Black Belt & also another DVD on Jiu Jitsu mindsets, his theories & Philosphies of Jiu Jitsu. I'm sure that I already know the answer to this but if he ever did this, it would make me "kum."

    Ask him how much blow has he done, how much does he think his son has done, and if he does blow with his son.

    Ask him what religion he is.

    Ask him how 'internal martial arts' helped his bjj. I know he does yoga, does he do tai chi too?

    Ask him where I can get some good blow.
