ELEVATE YOUR GAME!

Old Grappler Summit is an exclusive three day gathering for dedicated over-40 Jiu Jitsu practitioners of all levels (men and women) that want to increase their effectiveness and longevity on the mat.

This event is about more than just training, it's an opportunity to make amazing new friends that not only share your love of Jiu Jitsu, but understand the challenges of training over the age of 40. It's also an opportunity to enjoy a fun getaway weekend in sunny San Diego California.

Training will take place at the world-famous Clark Gracie Jiu Jitsu academy. How cool is that?!

Space is limited so please don't wait and miss out on participating in the first ever Old Grappler Summit!

AGENDA

Bulletproof Defense

We all want to dominate our opponents and get the tap. But the truth is, as older grapplers we're going to be in disadvantaged positions more than we'd like to be, so building an defensive oriented game is critical.

Guard passing

Passing the guard can be a difficult and complex skill, especially if you don't understand the underlying principles of guard passing or the application of targeted pressure.

High-percentage Attack Sequences

Some of my favorite and most high-percentage offensive sequences.

Personalized Troubleshooting

Every participant will be asked to bring a Jiu Jitsu problem they're struggling to solve. We're going to solve it!

Mobility for Jiu Jitsu

The key to success in Jiu Jitsu over the age of 40 is efficiency. The foundation of efficiency is great mobility, especially if you can correlate mobility patterns with BJJ techniques.

Art of the Flow

Learning how to flow effectively is the key to expanding your game, developing great timing, and improving your overall skillset.

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Hi, I'm Rick Ellis.

I'm a blackbelt under legendary Professor Roy Dean. I run The Art of Skill channel on YouTube.

I'm living proof that you can start Jiu Jitsu relatiely late in life and go on to become a blackbelt.

When I was new at BJJ my strategy was to match my training partner's speed, power, and strength. In fact, if they went hard, I tried to go even harder. But as you get older, that's a terrible strategy, one that will get you injured. Trust me, I know that first hand.

Instead, you need technical mastery and efficiency. You need perfect defense, great timing, and a versatile offensive game. I've spent years developing and teaching that style of Jiu Jitsu.

And I can help you too!
