De La Riva West Coast Seminar

Ricardo de la Riva will hold a seminar on Sunday May 27th at the West Coast BJJ academy in Maple Ridge, BC, Canada (about 2 hours from Seattle by car). This is the easiest way to train with de la Riva for those living on the West Coast, especially in the Pacific Northwest.

As an instructor and fighter of the Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Team de la Riva has helped shape today's BJJ. His small stature led to his innovations of the now popular guard game and his famous de la Riva hooks are practiced in BJJ academies all over the world.

The fee for the seminar is $75 until May 20th and $100 after that date. To pre-register or to book private and semi-private lessons please contact me at

Wish this guy would come to LA.

All it takes is someone to affiliate with him. One of his senior student told me that he is working on opening an academy in LA- that would do it too. Ricardo is a very cool guy to train with.
