Here are 4 Reasons Why You Should Attend the Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida Seminar.


1) It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train with Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida, the greatest grappler in the sport of BJJ

In 2012, Buchecha faced off against the legendary Roger Gracie. At that point, he was still a young gun and an up-and-coming competitor with an impressive amount of wins against some of the biggest names in the sport. Thanks to his notable performance against Gracie, he was thrust right in the spotlight. To this day, he continues to dominate in competitions, using his explosive, technical style against other prestigious competitors.

At this seminar, you’ll learn the techniques that have helped Buchecha get to where he is today. If you’ve been wanting to learn new techniques and want to incorporate Buchecha’s winning style into your own game, you’ll get the full lowdown from Buchecha himself. You’ll see how he gets into certain positions, his favorite transitions and submissions and understand his approach to BJJ.


2) You’ll learn more about what it takes to be the best in the sport

If you’re a competitor, there’s no better person to teach you about a winning mindset than the greatest competitor in the sport himself. Learning from the person who has faced some of the greatest names (and continues to do so) could certainly change the way you think about BJJ and your mentality. If you aren’t a competitor, don’t worry, there’s still something to learn. Buchecha’s winning mindset applies to all students, even if you’re just thinking about winning your sparring sessions.


3) You’ll learn some of the most innovative techniques in modern BJJ

Despite his size and stature, Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida is one of the most technical competitors in his division. And you can see it in his game. Unlike bigger competitors who usually hold positions and smother their opponents, Buchecha plays like a smaller BJJ competitor, using an open guard and lots of movement. And Buchecha is known for always staying on top of the game, adapting as the game changes. He doesn’t try to impose the game that got him the win in past competitions, he stays updated with the latest BJJ techniques and incorporates it into his game or develops a solid defense against them.


4) You’ll learn Buchecha’s style of BJJ

Ask any BJJ fan and they’ll tell you that what makes Buchecha different from your typical ultra heavyweight competitor is the fact that he is able to mix agility, explosiveness, and technical ability – a trait that not many competitors at his weight level have. He knows when to pick up the pace, when to hold his opponent down and when to explode (thanks to his amazing strength and conditioning). He is fearless when it comes to going for submissions, which make his matches usually very exciting. You will learn all the techniques that have helped Buchecha reach the pinnacle of the sport of BJJ, including the submissions that have worked against some of the greatest names in BJJ. For passionate BJJ competitors and students, this is one seminar you won’t want to miss! But don’t just think about it ­– sign up for the Buchecha seminar today!
