 Your Jiu Jitsu tool bag should have not just solid fundamentals, but a few of the latest techniques as well. Michael Liera Jr is a unique competitor in that he combines both fundamentals and new-school technique into his game very well. His seminars are known for being heavy on details and stringing together a series of moves in a simple progression. 

Competitors such as Liera essentially work their way from tournament to tournament trying to spread Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and prepare themselves for the big IBJJF tournaments. Liera Jr won his weight division at the Seattle open for the past three years. He is back to do it again, then afterwards he will be teaching seminars at Praxis on Sunday the 5th.


The seminars are open to anyone who trains in our fundamentals, intermediate, or advanced level classes. Sunday at noon will be a seminar on technique, then at 2pm we will have a seminar on drilling. The technique portion is instructors choice, however if you have anything you are dying to see please let me know. The drilling seminar will cover how the champs work to improve skill. ATOS is known for their advanced drilling methods. I am looking forward to seeing the tricks from Liera himself. The cost is 70 for one session or 110 for both. Please sign up via the link below.
