Avoid the Mc Dojo!

Chico Mendes at Checkmat Wimbledon!

A big day yesterday for Checkmat Wimbledon, as we hosted our first seminar; Chico Mendes​​ came over to a very sunny SW19 to deliver a No Gi guard passing masterclass. A number of guys at the seminar are competing in No Gi events in April and May, so this was not to be missed. 

Chico went over guard passing with a fine tooth comb, with lots of concepts and drills, with everyone coming away from the session with something to add to their bag of tricks. 

Huge thanks to Paul Severn​​ for supporting the event and bringing Chico over and Tiago Valente and Colin Nwadike​​ and the Croydon team for their support too. Not forgetting Luiz Manxinha Ribeiro​​ for his continuing help and support in making this happen :)
