June 2019: BJJ seminar recap, events, and prepping for our upcoming summer theme

Posted Jun 6th, 2019 in News

Ray Price, Straight Blast Gym Black Belt, left us with some leading BJJ tips for top game positional dominance. We love the never-ending advancement that allows us to continually refine our students' sport combat. Plus, check out upcoming self defense and Wise Warrior events in Edmonton and our new Summer Theme.

Big thank you to Ray Price for making another journey North from Reno to Edmonton. Everyone's top game went up a level within just 2 days.

Although it's always better to be there in person to gain a wealth of individual learning and shifts, don't worry if you missed out: We don't hide the secrets we learn. We always share!

Ray always leaves us with, not a box of static techniques, but a living template of material that we can continue to use and drill--and I'm looking forward to applying it all to our coaching approach at the gym.

As for June events, read on for this month's classes and events, plus, check out our summer theme being introduced this July and August.

Stay tuned for the updated summer schedule.
