Blind GJJ Seminar - Huge Success

April 23, 2012

A powerful experience for all involved!

On April 14, 2012, the Gracie Academy hosted it's first ever Gracie Jiu-Jitsu seminar for the visually impaired. At the beginning, the students, and the instructors, were nervous, since no one knew what to expect, but by the end everyone was having a blast. Although the techniques covered were super basic, it gave the participants, most of whom were totally blind, a true appreciation for the simplicity and universal applicability of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
