Widely regarded as the greatest Brazilian MMA coach, Jiu-Jitsu teacher André Pederneiras (Nova União) flew to the city of Fortaleza to tie up the final loose ends before the next Shooto event in the Northeast Brazilian city.
Coach to José Aldo, Vitor Shaolin and a plethora of other top-notch MMA stars, Pederneiras visited the local affiliate of his team, Nova União, where he taught a class to more than 50 practitioners studying under gym leader Guilherme Santos.
GRAB BELT AND SWEEP
Speaking with Junior Samurai, a GRACIEMAG.com contributor, André Pederneiras shared a lesson for Jiu-Jitsu players who are sick and tired of stallers keeping them down.
