Minotauro / De La Riva Jiu-jitsu Seminar in Rio de Janeiro

Rodrigo "Minotauro" & Master De La Riva

Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira & Master Ricardo De La Riva at the Seminario Historico, held in De La Riva Jiu-jitsu Academy, Equipe 1 Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro.

De La Riva Jiu-jitsu located in Copacabana was host to Jiu-jitsu Master Ricardo De La Riva and  MMA legend Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira seminar on the 30th of July. Just knowing Master Ricardo De La Rivas Jiu-jitsu accomplishments is enough reason to bring most anyone to the mat for a lesson from the man himself  (BJJ HEROS DLR BIO), then adding the skills of MMA legend Rodrigo Minotauro for a complete Gi and No-Gi seminar made something well worth everyone’s while.

The best way to explain this closed door seminar that took place at De La Riva BJJ academy, inside Equipe 1 Gym on Nossa Senhora, Copacabana… A HUGE success! The mat was completely filled with athletes who where treated to a selection of choice techniques taught by Master De La Riva and Rodrigo Minotauro. “Seminario Historico” was divided into two segments, with it’s first featuring the technical knowledge of Master De La Riva pulling some impressive sweeps out of his encyclopedia of moves. DLR watched closely as attendees drilled his moves, interacting and correcting even his student Minotauro’s sweeps.

For the second half of the Seminario Historico, participants dropped the Gis and learned a number of slick No-Gi finishes perfected by Minotauro. Both Master DLR and Minotauro where very hands on making time for everyone in attendance, both during and after the seminar.
