Last November 13th, the patriarch of the Alliance Jiu-Jitsu team, seventh degreered and black Belt Romero ‘Jacare’ Cavalcanti, gave a Seminar in Dallas, Texas for the three Alliance team affiliates(Mohler MMA, Pesadelo Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Texas Elite).
It was extremely well attended by about 100 members of all ranks and sizes. The good attendance showed the strength and growth of not just the team, but of the gentle art as a whole in Texas.
Professor ‘Jacare’ showed many of the techniques proven in high level competition in a very logical and precise manner and imparted his love for Jiu-Jitsu as he exhibited his passion for detail that he has given to the Alliance team over many years.
After the techniques and drills were done for the seminar, Jacare’ promoted several of the Black Belts present. Allen Mohler received his 3rd Degree, Jon Bjorksten received his 2nd Degree, and Marcus Hicks, Carl Ortega, Jeff Hennen, and Kirk Gibson all were promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt.
