Yesterday I had the privilege to be a part of the Samuel Braga seminar at the academy. Samuel is one of the greatest BJJ competitors at his weight class his accomplishments include multiple time World Champion, National Champion, Pan Am Champion and the list could go on and on. I got a chance to know Samuel a bit when Draculino first opened his academy, Samuel was there with him and was his assistant instructor. After a few months he moved to Tennessee to run his own school. While he was working here it was known that he was a great competitor, but not too many people got the chance to listen to him teach and learn from him because Professor Draculino was the Head Instructor. Yesterday at the seminar I came to realize what a fantastic teacher Professor Braga really is. He taught the techniques with extreme details, breaking down all the finer points of each of them so it was easy to comprehend and practice the techniques. Those of you that have an opportunity to train with him full time are a lucky bunch of guys/girls. So if you live around the Knoxville, TN area and looking for a place to train I highly recommend Professor Braga!
