What is a Gracie Connection Camp?
Events | Gracie Connection Camp
This a very special camp where we spoil our members with the amazing detail of my Master Rickson Gracie and his son Kron Gracie’s special movement.
As a Brown belt back in 2008 I had the pleasure of having Kron with me here in Australia for 2 weeks of solid training including his first visit to the land of Oz.During this time he opened my eyes further more to his fathers amazing movement they call “CONNECTION”
Surfing along with up to 2 sessions a day of 'Garage Jiu-Jitsu’ in a massive beach front house on a cliff overlooking Sunshine Beach on the beautiful Sunshine Coast gave me the idea of the Camp.
This short period would change the way I roll forever. I remember very very clearly my higher ranked students saying to me after feeling the difference of my then current game…"What the hell have you been doing up there?” My Jiu-Jitsu had changed.
How is this possible in such a short period of time? Well, as my very dear friend and Professor Takamasa Watanabe once said to me…."I can’t explain it, you just need to feel it.”
As a result of this, I now have a better understanding of the Masters theory and Kron's own very unique way of movement. I am no Kron Gracie, but just this very basic understanding of connection will open your mind as it did mine.
After speaking with Kron recently, we will also now be holding the Gracie Connection Camps in the United States as of 2015.
If you love your Jiu-Jitsu then you are in for a real treat.
