This past Sunday (May 9, 2010) Bangkok BJJ hosted the 'hakada-jime juudan' KTaro Nakamura for a 3-hour no-gi seminar. Covering set-ups and control points to secure the rear-naked-choke. I would like to personally thank KTaro-san for visiting us in Bangkok and sharing his techniques and making time to roll with each student that attended the seminar. We had a great turnout and good energy in the group.
A special thank you to Hiroko for coordinating this with KTaro-san and introducing the idea to the us some months ago. Also to the crew of Japanese friends/teammates here in Bangkok that know how to show anyone a good time: Tomi, Kaise and Shigeki. All four were a great help in a video interview I did with KTaro-san which should be ready later this week as we're working on the subtitles for the non-Japanese speakers.
