|Me, Benjamin & Rener Gracie - December, 2012|
We conducted two adult seminar sessions and a bullyproof session in the afternoon. I appreciate all the help I received from my assistants and of those students who brought in fruit, water and especially Lisa's world famous spring rolls.
|Rener Gracie Seminar - Lexington, SC 2012|
All our self-defense programs are doing well. Our youth and adult Nihon Goshin Aikido classes are well attended and students are progressing nicely. We will be adjusting some of our classes for January, 2013 to accommodate the growth of our student body and the demand for additional training. The Little Samurai classes are doing great and the kids are keeping me on my toes! Our Youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu classes are growing every month and our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Combatives classes are as busy as ever. We will be hitting the Master Cycle Classes (blue-belt curriculum) hard starting January, 2013. I want to congratulate all our students who made their Gracie Blue-Belts in 2012 and welcome each of you and many others to the Master Cycle!
I hope everyone enjoys the holidays and has a great 2013!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
See you on the mats.
Sensei John Carter
