I found this 3 day seminar which looks pretty interesting. It is with some Top MMA coaches for fighters such as GSP, Rashard Evans, Nate Marquardt, Kenny Florian, Patrick Cote and Michelle Waterson. The actual coaches are: Mark DellaGrotte, Greg Jackson, Shawn Thomkins, Dave Camarillo and Ricardo Liborio. Also, the events have been known to have guest fighters appear such as Antonio Nogoueira, Jon Fitch, Bas Rutten, Pat Millitech, Chuck Lidell, BJ Penn and more. Now, I seriously doubt that all those guys will be there. Most likely they have been there at past events, and probably no more than 1 big name guest per event. It seems pretty promising, and it’s something I am considering when it comes to the East Coast. Here is the pricing, schedule and other information:
Dana point March 13-15 Colorado March 20-22
Chicago March 27-29 Boston April 3-5
Miami April 10-12
Three day seminar (for early birds) $400.00
