Besides being the head instructor of the San Clemente Gracie Barra, Prof. Flavio Almeida is the Executive director of GB Association, a worldwide organization responsible for supporting and supervising hundreds of Jiu-Jitsu schools in the finve continents. Doing his work for Gracie Barra, Flavio met Mike Swain (Former Judo World Champions and Olympian Athlete) who is the vice-president of Dollamur and provides the best mats for grappling and martial arts training over all.

Our friendship begun, when we were buying the mats for GB San Clemente back in 2008. Mike is an amazing human being and I kept bugging him to go train at his home school, San Jose State Judo. The opportunity finally came this week when he was kind enough to invite me to teach a seminar to some of his athletes. I had a blast training there. Some of the Judokas are getting ready to represent the US on the next olympic games and I was glad to be able to help a little bit.  Says Professor Flavio Almeida

Professor Flavio also visited the headquarters of our mat supplier and worked to bring the GB-Dollamur to a whole new level as the goal is to implement the same mats we have in San Clemente on all GB Schools worldwide.

Professor Flavio is back in San Clemente and will be teaching a brazilian jiu-jitsu  (BJJ) class tomorrow from 7pm to 9pm.
