Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Phenom Roberto Atalla is back in South Africa.
We are very proud to be part of the Rio Grappling International Group as they have kept the highest standards in all aspects of the Jiu Jitsu sporting world . We are even more proud to host our head Coach Roberto Atalla once more in South Africa . Last time he blew us away with both his (No Gi and Gi ) seminars in Johannesburg and I heard similar reports from other parts of the country .
I am so excited to not only learn more from my coach but I believe he is one of the greatest instructors in the world who truly have the spreading of the beautiful art of Jiu Jitsu as his number one priority. I hope that those people that support our passion for both forms of grappling will get involved and experience the brotherhood that is growing in the South African grappling community. I am so looking forward to the Quantum Tribe Cup competition- see details below. I hope that every style of grappling will take this opportunity to come out and have a great day mixing styles in the gentle art.
Please contact me if you are interested in getting more involved or hosting a seminar during his four week vistit .
