Come join us for a full day of seminars on Saturday, June 8, 2019. Instruction begins at 10am.
This is a unique opportunity to learn from not one but two Hall of Fame martial artists in one day! Both instructors are also listed in the recent book, World's Greatest Martial Artists, published by the Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame.
We'll be spending four hours learning American Combat Jujitsu from the founder himself, Professor Tony Maynard! A couple of Professor Maynard's top instructors will also be teaching. By the end of the day, you'll have an appreciation for Professor Maynard's personal motto, "Devastation Through Simplicity."
Additionally, we will learn about the Sport Jujitsu competition format by the coach of one of the top Sport Jujitsu teams actively competing (and winning!) today, Grandmaster Barry A. Broughton, PhD. It's important to note that Sport Jujitsu is not a "style" of jujitsu, but rather a set of rules for competition that allow practitioners of a variety of arts to compete in the same tournament. Sport Jujitsu is a fast paced form of competition that emphasizes continuous action and combines skills from striking arts and grappling arts.
