John Ouano Seminar details-- Spring TX Sat. Sept 28th!

Here's the promised details about a great opportunity for kids as well as adults-- how many seminars are offered specifically for young people?  Not many!  But grappling kids in Texas are lucky-- 3rd degree blackbelt John Ouano (owner, Ouano Gis and cofounder of famous New Breed Academy, former training home of world champion Val Worthington) is coming to the Houston area this weekend to teach kids and adults.

It's going to be a lot of fun, and to top it off, John is throwing in a brand new Hooligan Gi, to be raffled off the day of the seminar. $15 gets you a chance to win a $180 gi! 
From Tim Credeur: "Other than my direct instructor Rodrigo Medeiros, John Ouano taught me more about Jiu-Jitsu than anyone else. He was instrumental in helping develop my Jiu-Jitsu game, my belief in myself and my resolve to be a champion. He is one of my idols! Great Instructor but even greater person!"
And I have to concur.  John has always been incredibly warm and welcoming to me and my husband when we visit southern Cal, inviting us into his academy and being a true friend both on and off the mats. 
You'll notice the seminar is sponsored by Kids in Kimonos.   Eddie Avelar and John Abney started a kids-only jiu jitsu meeting on the last Sunday of the month, like Girls in Gis but just for kids. Boys, girls, doesn't mater, it's any kid between ages 6-15 from any school affiliation.  More info on the group here:
