    ask him to show you his favorite sweep from closed guard. Him and his brother do the same sweep on alot of people.

    Same sweep he highlights in the Art Suave bjj dvd

    He's also really gifted at passing the guard. I would take the opportunity to have him show you some of his bread & butter passes.

    Xande (and Saulo) is my BJJ instructor. He is a very cool guy. You can ask him anything and he will show you.

    When and where is the seminar?

    The seminar turned out great. It ended up lasting from 9 AM til about 2:30. He spent the first half of the class covering closed guard sweeps, and transitions into Omplatas. The second half he spent teaching us his "bread and butter" guard pass. He did a really good job teaching us basics and how to tackle different situations that I think are easily implementable into anyones game.

    Afterwards he answered questions from subjects like practice habits to other greats that he has competed against. Very good.
