    I don't have too many details yet, but rafael has been VERY busy. Should be coming out pretty soon. A DVD is in the works too. New site design is up, and Rafael has been bringing in shogun's muay thai coach to prepare him for his mma debut.

    I'm thinking abot going to Lovatos about twice a month. Anyone think it would actually be helpful? Or just a waste of money driving from Tulsa to OKC.

    ^ it is worth the drive for sure. I did a couple of privates with Jr.'s dad. His dad uses straight up old school jitsu. Come by and check it out.

    I consider Rafael my instructor even though I live in Seattle. He's been so influential on my game. I've done seminars and privates about 3 times a year for a few years. He's an extremely good instructor and the best (that I've worked with) on giving you tools that benefit your body type and attributes.

    I currently train with Rafael. I have spoken with him in the past couple of days about this app. He is trying to get it released soon. I don't want to say this week or next week because I don't know for sure and don't want to get any hopes up. However, I know that it will be soon. As soon as it is available I will post the link to the DL page. If you have any questions let me know!

    Gumbi_Guard I look forward to meeting you!

    Agony, I think that it would definitely be worth it. We currently have people who travel from Tulsa, Ardmore and other place to train with us. We would love to have you come down. Please let me know if there are any questions you have and I will pass on the info or put you in touch with the right people to get your question answered.

    There is a new site up: Lovato's School of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu - Oklahoma City's Elite Martial Arts Academy and it has a TON of info.

    Awesome. I do happen to have three days off every week. I may drive down there for the submission wrestling. I get pretty good training now, but I imagine Lovato could help my game quite a bit. Does he actively help the class or just hang out?

    Rafael teaches almost all of the advanced classes. The only reason he wouldn't teach class would be if he was out of town or sick. Justin Rader teaches all of the beginner classes and the wrestling class. James head teaches the Muay Thai class.

    Hope that helps!

    Rafael said on his Martial Arts Blog that he is holding a contest today for a free APP download! However, you have to be a fan of Rafael on his Facebook Fan page and be at his page at 3:00 central time. The App is at Apple and should be released this week.

    I have used the app already and it is awesome! It was shot in High Def and the video quality is very crisp!

    Here is the commercial if you haven't seen it.
