Kid Peligro Seminar at Ryan Hall's 50/50 Academy
This past Saturday Kid conducted a seminar at Ryan Hall's 50/50 Academy in Arlington, Virginia. The seminar was really cool and the attendees seemed to enjoy it (see review below). Kid wants to take the time to thank everyone that attended and especially Ryan and Jen for their efforts in organizing and hosting the seminar and being such great hosts and Seth for being my partner in demoing the techs! Hope to be back soon!
PS: Sorry to for the attendees that left early (seminar ran long) for not being on the group pic, next time for sure!
Kid Peligro Seminar Review from MMA.TV by Anarkis:
"Today I attended a Kid Peligro seminar at 50/50. The seminar was originally slated for about three hours in length. I guess Kid had an agenda though and wanted to make sure he covered plenty of things. The seminar end up stretching for a whole four hours and fifteen minutes. During that time he covered some key concepts including common defenses, passes, and finally attacks. He also opened the floor to any question at the end.
What I got out of this kind of seminar really transcends a series of moves that lead someone to some form of championship run. The man was a wealth of similes and metaphors that ultimately provided key Jiu Jitsu concepts. I would say 50% of the concepts he covered I have seen some form of in the past. But his ability to really explain why they work and what you should be looking for was extremely helpful. I guess for me its when you separate someone who is good at Jiu Jitsu to someone who ascends to that Zen Master level.
He was very respectful to those who imparted some of the wisdom he shared, crediting Rickson, Royler and Terere. But he also was very respectful of high level sport Jiu Jitsu competitors and what they are able to accomplish. If you enjoy the books he puts out, his seminars are just as much in depth and cover very important details. I would highly recommend that you attend one given the opportunity and you will leave with some new and exciting ideas to improve your game.
I asked him what his next book was going to be, he told me that the publisher he used to use went out of business. He said he will most likely be putting out an Ebook next and that he plans on creating an App as well. I believe he is going to cover the guard concepts he went over in the seminar. "
