Description

Rigan Machado is coming to The Academy Venice to teach a Jiu-Jitsu seminar for all belt levels! Master Rigan is a legend in the sport, 8th degree black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr., Mundial Champion and ADCC Veteran.

An American jiujitsu pioneer, Master Rigan was the best competitor of his time and is one of the top Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors in the world. His decades long experience in teaching - to everyone from beginners to World Champions - and his massive contributions to the art and its teaching methods have brought him worldwide acclaim. Rigan is widely regarded as one of the true living legends of the art of Jiu-Jitsu, his contributions cannot be overstated.

"Finding a harmony between mind and body is the ultimate goal of any martial artist, but the physical techniques must come first," he says. "A calm and concentrated awareness is the key toward realization of personal potential, of which technical mastery is the first step."

Rigan believes that students need to absorb the fact that conquering the fundamentals is the only route to mastery in the art of Jiu-Jitsu. Students need to understand how the fundamental principles work from all angles and endless variables and master them as well. He teaches that the secret is body feel and awareness.

To that end, Rigan has developed a comprehensive curriculum of single-person and partner movement drills to etch the movement deep into the nervous system, to the point that they can be applied effortlessly.

Beginning with his guest appearances on Walker, Texas Ranger, Rigan has developed many relationships in the film industry that have helped him promote the art. He is highly sought after in action films where directors want the dynamic realism that can only be provided by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. His recent work on films such as John Wick 2, Fast & Furious 7 and the Marvel Studios films have brought the lethal elegance of Machado Jiu-Jitsu to millions of viewers.

Rigan currently instructs many stars in his Beverly Hills Academy. Ashton Kutcher, Vin Diesel, Wesley Snipes, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Keanu Reeves and Charlie Hunnam all call Rigan their instructor in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It speaks volumes that students who have the luxury of studying under virtually any instructor on the planet consistently choose to study with Rigan.

"Training with Rigan Machado was definitely and experience that changed my life. At one time, I definitely think he was the greatest grappler to walk the earth." BJ Penn - BJJ Black Belt, Mundial Champion, former UFC Champion

Master Rigan will be covering a wide array of amazing drills and techniques for all belt levels, beginner through black belt. His teaching style, patience and dedication to the art of BJJ are what make him a legend. Have no doubt, this will be the experience of a LIFETIME!
