    Hey guys, does anyone know what the 27 lessons are in the fundamentals program at the Valente Jiu-Jitsu school in miami? they're supposed to be a spin off of the original 40 lessons taught by helio in his private lessons. so if anyone trains there or has trained there before, it would be great if u cood help me out. thanks!

    Do you want a break down of every lesson? Why not just go talk to Pedro or Gui or Joachim? They're awesome guys.

    Yes it is a spinoff of the original 40 lessons.

    If you want bona fide, blue ribbon, old-school, veritable, 100% prime certified self-defense Brazilian Jiu Jitsu the way Helio Gracie designed it....... that's where you have to be. The Valentes.

    Have you the opportunity to look at the combatives online program?

    anything close to the Helio program?

    As far as I know, Rorion ( as well as the Valentes and a few others, like Pedro Hemeterio) are the few who Helio sponsored as legitimately following his mentality, art, and lesson plan to his death.

    Given that and the fact that Helio declared Rorion's jiu jitsu to be the official heir to his jiu jitsu, and the fact that Rorion is known to adhere strictly to his father's JJ ( focusing on self-defense, etc)

    I'm pretty confident that the combatives plan is a tweaked version of the original self defense course.

    I'd say you owe it to the rest of us to just go check it out for yourself then

    and post your experience for those of us who don't live 3 minutes away

    You have a very rare opportunity to learn for one of the officials intructors of Helio Gracie.

    They are very different for modern sport JJ and it a must experience for anyone that has the opportunity.

    @LOKO DE MIAMI, yea, if you could go and check it out for us and figure out what exactly is in the f27 (fundamentals based of the original 40 lessons) program, that would be awesome! if anything, the experience of training with the valentes should be worth it!

    You live 3 minutes away and you need a forum to tell you to go? Just go!

    Training with the Valentes is incredible and you should do it. Huge gym. Lots of all color belts. Very structured. Very, very, very detailed.
