That Grand Master Flavio Behring is one of the featured Red Belts in the new film being produced by BJJ Hacks and Hywel Teague in Brazil right now. "Red Belts" is a tribute film dedicated to the many Jiu Jitsu Grand Masters that have come before us. This is what they had to say about a recent visit by him...
"We’ve had a busy couple of weeks: we flew in GM Flavio Behring from Sao Paulo so that we could include him in the film. he told us some amazing stories about training in the USA in the 1960s(!) that we don’t think anybody has heard before. We’ll likely bring him back for a follow up in the near future to expand upon his experiences in the 60s and 70s."

Sign up now and reserve your spot for this event. See you all on the mat.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu | Salt Lake City | S7 Tournament

Absolute MMA brought home more medals than team members competed. Again. Our whole team fought hard, did what they knew how to do and listened to our coaches. We had some of our team step up in either a weight division or experience level, or both, including our youngest competitor. We also had a teammate jump into competition after a month of training. We are very proud of our team, what they have done and what they continue to do.
