Master Roberto Leitão (the eponymous father of the Brazilian national wrestling coach) calls on one and all to partake in a class at Nova União headquarters, Upper sports club, in Rio de Janeiro’s Flamengo borough. On August 13, a Saturday, starting at 10 am, Leitão will teach a seminar on the subject the Jiu-Jitsu (in this case, the no-gi variety) faithful are most fascinated with.

“I’ll address, in clear language, the central theme ‘Leverage from start to finish,’ and all its implications in a match, with basic principles, strategies, learning methods, and efficiency,” says the master, an encyclopedia on the subject of locks involving the legs, among other submission holds.
