Shaolin said he had the best team over 30...and he proved it!

On October 7, 2012, our team of 17 people went to compete at the Pyramid in Long Beach for the IBJJF Worlds Masters and Seniors. Not only did we bring back 12 medals, but we also got the 1st place Team Award for both Male and Female divisions!

Shaolin celebrated his return to the competition mats after 11 years by getting his 5th World Champion title!

It was a great weekend with the Nova Uniao Team from all over the world!

Excellent Seminar with the one and only De La Riva!

Last Sunday, we had the creator of the De La Riva guard....Master De La Riva at Vitor Shaolin's BJJ Academy right here in New York City! It was an honor to have him teach us and can you tell how impressed Shaolin was with his moves?
