Dan Strauss 'Butterfly Guard for No Gi Jiu Jitsu' Black belt Seminar
Sun 7 May 2017, 12:00 – 15:00 BST
Daniel Strauss seminar at Elements MMA
The Raspberry Ape in association with 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Birmingham presents:
An afternoon with Dan Strauss focusing entirely on the effective use of butterfly guard for no gi grappling competition.
Sunday 7 May 2017
Dan is a black belt under Roger Gracie. The 25 year old casts an imposing shadow due in no small part to his relentless work ethic focusing heavily on horse shoe bending in the name of improving grip strength.
A fan favorite of arguably the UK's number one no-gi Jiu Jitsu event Polaris, Dan has a European BJJ black belt championship title to his credentials as well as a long list of championship honors behind him; an impressive resume for one so young.
Born in London, Daniel competes out of MIll Hill BJJ, a small but highly successful outfit run by himself and Nick Brooks who are proud affiliates of the Roger Gracie Academy.
Daniel is famed in BJJ circles for his movement for a man his size, as well as his guillotine and more recently his effective and efficient use of the butterfly guard.
When Daniel announced plans to take his Butterfly Guard onto the road and teach seminars up and down the country, Elements MMA (home to 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Birmingham) were eager to pull the trigger and confirm a stop at Birmingham's Strongest Family for all its members and non-members alike.
We hope you enjoy learning this basic and effective yet extremely high level guard from one of the UK's most notable grapplers.
The seminar is aimed at all levels from novice to expert and beyond. Regardless of whether you have just started Jiu Jitsu or you are indeed a black belt yourself there will be plenty on offer to learn and the instruction will be made effortless and accessible due to Daniel's affable, down to earth, easy going nature.
