A Perfect Day to Learn with Master Royler Gracie at Gracie Humaitá Austin

There aren't many words to say after experiencing this Saturday’s seminar with Master Royler Gracie other than, “Holy Shiznit"!!! It was mind blowing!  The seminar was three hours of self-defense, sport Jiu-Jitsu, transitions, submissions, positions, fundamentals, advanced moves and much more. 

It was inspiring to see fifty people on the mats at one time from five different schools coming together to learn and better themselves through the teachings of Master Royler Gracie.  Royler's larger than life presence and fluidity on the mats was captivating. His record and the legacy of champions he has bred, is a testament to his level of dedication and passion for Jiu-Jitsu. Royler’s charismatic nature and humorous disposition made for an upbeat and fun atmosphere. Royler has perhaps the most striking resemblance to his father and also possesses the same loving spirit of all the Gracie's I've met so far. It is this same love that has been passed on and brings us all together within our Jiu-Jitsu communities.    

I was especially excited about a few moves I'd seen before, and at the seminar I learned some details I had been missing. With lots of practice I hope to implement them into my game...eventually.  Practice, practice, practice makes perfect.  

I've never been let down by a Gracie Humaitá seminar.  After experiencing my second Royler seminar I am reassured once again that I've chosen the right team and family for me.  Thank you Royler Gracie, Donald Park, and Gracie Humaitá Austin for this amazing seminar.  Much success to all and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  1. I am planning to visit Austin at least once a month and am wondering if either academy Gracie Barra North Austin or Gracie Humaita offer mat fees for one or two days of training?

    Thank you and I love your blog!

  2. Hi Sandra,

    Thank you so much for reading my blog. I really appreciate your words of encouragement. :) You should def. check out both schools if you have time. Both have a lot to offer. Fabiana runs a great women's class on Fridays 7-8 for a $25 drop in fee. Not sure about drop in policies for other classes, but I'm sure they'll work with you. They are awesome. Contact them @ www.gbnorthaustin.com
    You also have to come train with us. Visit and sign up online for Gracie Humaita Austin @ www.gracielegacy.com
    Someone will get back to you with more details. Thanks again and hope to see you around. You'll love Austin. It's a fun town-city.
