Eight Black Belts for Eight Causes

“Eight Black Belts for Eight Causes”
Seminar to bring Ohio’s top Jiu Jitsu instructors together for one unprecedented day of instruction and charitable support.

Eight of Ohio’s best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts have united to put on a martial arts seminar like no other. Strong Style Mixed Martial Arts and Training Center, 6900 Granger Road, Independence, Ohio 44131, will host this spectacular event on January 11, 2014, commencing at 9:30 am. Dubbed, “8 Black Belts for 8 Causes,” this seminar will not only showcase some of the best “The Heartland” has to offer; but in an unprecedented event, each Black Belt will be donating a portion of the proceeds to one of eight different charities and good causes.  With support and attention from all over the country, this event is aimed to provide awareness and support for each important cause, including Alzheimer’s, Cancer, and MS.
Each structured lesson will be organized by belt ranks and/or experiences.  Every session will allow the participants to experience a diversity of black belt instruction, including but not limited to self defense, philosophy, mixed martial arts, and sport jiu jitsu. This seminar will cater to belt ranks and styles, focusing on the diversity of each individual’s experience and learning pace.
The Black Belt Instructors will also provide a diverse look, incorporating their own individual styles and techniques; with well over a century and a half of accumulated experiences from training, competing, organizing and instructing all over the globe. Many have been recognized on the local, national, and international scene. Many have coached UFC, Bellator, and other prominent mixed martial arts (MMA) events. Among the list of Black Belts are World and Pan American medalists and champions, as well as many other prestigious accomplishments. The Black Belt Instructor list includes: Relson Gracie Black Belts (“BB”), Robin Gieseler and Mark Stefanac; Jorge Gurgel BB, Dustin Ware; Carlos Machado BB, Kristopher Mcleod; Pedro Sauers BB, Bill Jones; Nova Uniao/ Eduardo Barros BB, Jay Nance; Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros BBs, Pablo Angel Castro, III and Deon Thompson. Among the attendees will be UFC Coach and Mixed Martial Arts instructor Marcus Marinelli, UFC fighters Jessica Eye and Stipe Miocic, Bellator superstar Brian Rogers, as well as many others to be later announced.
This seminar brings a unique and refreshing flavor.  Along with each Black Belt instructor, local and national businesses and organizations, such as Intimidation Clothing, Alzheimer’s Association, North American Allied Fight Series, and Nooma are leading the way to make this a remarkable event. Many other vendors, organizations and businesses will be present to support and share their life stories and adversities. Informational booths, raffles and door prizes will also make this an exciting event. This is an amazing way the martial arts community can celebrate and support each other in what will surely be a memorable experience. Costs for the all day event will be $120.
