World's Elite Grapplers Come To Hawaii!!!....

One thing is for sure, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a very popular sport out here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.  Ever since Relson Gracie came to Oahu back in the 80's, grappling has made it's way into alot of people's hearts.  Today is no different.
   Many different teams and flags are flown here nowadays, and we can all be stoked that some of today's top athletes are visiting the islands.  For the last years, there has been some what of a domination in the lightweight catagories, and it is that domination of Rafael and Guilherme Mendes!
We should all be super-stoked to have the opportunity to be able to train with them!..Yes, alot of their positions are "cutting edge", but we can be sure that these positions were only constructed after having a stellar grasp on all things basic in Gracie Jiu-jitsu.  To be able to mix it up with some of the world's best who travel the globe preaching the gospel of BJJ is a reality in December!!!..FOR THE LOVE OF THE SPORT
