A true privilege!
When I first saw the poster that Gabriel Gonzaga was coming to my local martial arts gym, It was a pleasant surprise. I was so excited I made a little promotional video, a few days before he came to teach the seminar. When I first met him, he was very friendly and said some very kind words about my work. During the seminar he was a great teacher, he was very patient and for someone who speaks English as his second language he gave clear instructions. He also showed off his skills with some of our veteran grapplers which was fun to watch. If you ever want a day for your gym to be taught by a very experienced and highly skilled athlete, book Napao!
