World Gi and No-gi champion Rafael Lovato Jr was in Oregon this weekend for a very special occasion.
Our GMA member in Oklahoma was welcomed by GMA member schools Seaside BJJ, Five Rings and Northwest MMA, among others, for a seminar.
Lovato taught his techniques and also did some promotions
Seaside BJJ’s leader Zach Adamson commented on the events: “Seeing my close friends Nik Gift and James Puopolo get promoted today was a rewarding experience! Both of these guys have had a huge impact on my growth in training and as a person. It was great to see so many faces from the Jiu-Jitsu community at the seminar. Big thanks to Professor, Rafael Lovato Jr. for an amazing couple days of training. The Lovato Oregon Jiu Jitsu Association is growing stronger.”
