Lucio “Lagarto” Rodrigues Seminar 2016


Another great seminar at Gracie Barra St Peters and this time we had the pleasure to meet this legend. A champion on and off the mats, who beat the best fighters in the game and also overcame cancer.

Often regarded as the Lance Armstrong of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Lucio Rodrigues also known as “Lagarto”, is a decorated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt who has victoriously battled with cancer, returning to BJJ after his recovery to conquer some of the most important titles in his career, such as the European Open and the World Pro Cup finals in Abu Dhabi.

Lagarto spent the day with us at Gracie Barra St Peters and shared some of the techniques he used during his prosperous career. We had the opportunity to learn  great techniques with some amazing variations which improved our games tremendously.

We had almost 30 people attending the event and everyone was impressed with Lagarto’s knowledge and humility. He took the time to assist everyone during and after the seminar, always with a big smile on his face.

It was truly a once in a life time opportunity and I am glad I was there.
