The Pan camp at GMA Institute of Martial Arts in San Jose, CA began over the weekend with multiple black belts in attendance. Coming from Brazil and various areas of California, names like Leandro Lo, Luiza Monteiro, Yuri Simoes, Clark Gracie, Nathan Mendelsohn, Tanner Rice and more are preparing together for the 2014 Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship on March 12 – 16 in Irvine, CA.
The IMA instructors/ locals Caio Terra, Osvaldo Queixinho, Milton Bastos and Samir Chantre have created an atmosphere of high-level skill and talent. That was until Kit Dale arrived from Australia. The bearded brother from CheckMat appeared on the scene and has since perplexed the existing crowd with what can only be described with this picture:
This crowd will be heading down to the southern region of the state for the Pan Championship at the Brenn Event Center. To follow their camp and more madness that ensues, follow the Institute of Martial Arts facebook page: www.facebook.com/InstituteofMartialArtsCTA
Clark Gracie also showed some techniques of his at the camp but his were more adaptable to every-day life:
From Caio Terra’s facebook: “Learning from the master!! I thought I knew style but now my hair is perfect. Thanks Clark, Technique Conquers All.. Good morning America hair I come!”
