Ludovic Parreira No Gi Seminar

Ludovic Parreira is no stranger to Monarchy MMA or Grappling. He visited us in 2014 and again in 2016 for a No Gi and Luta Livre seminar. Now, he is back! Parreira is a No Gi BJJ pioneer in the south of France. He is Head coach at the GP Sports Miramas Gym in Miramas, France which he also founded in 2008. He is also an avid Vipassana yoga practitioner and loves animals - one of the reasons why he is a vegan (since 2012!). 

 

Muay Thai Pad Holding

With the increase of students in our Muay Thai classes, it has not been an easy feat teaching Muay Thai techniques and pad holding at the same time. Pad holding is an integral part of our Muay Thai classes as a learning tool in practicing techniques and combinations. It is also the closest aspect to sparring or a real fight. Samir Mrabet, our founder noticed that the overall quality of our Muay Thai classes could potentially be better through the acquired skills of pad holding of our own students.

International Masters Asia and Tokyo Open

Earlier this year, our Brazilian Jiujitsu team traveled to the Philippines to compete at the Manila Open organised the International Brazilian Jiujitsu Federation.
