Make sure you register for an amazing event, here at Frota Academy!

The Graduation will start at 14:15 and will take a place in Frota Academy:

Badenerstrasse 434, 8004, Zurich.

The special guest of this event is 4th degree black belt – Braulio Estima, will join us with Free Seminar to share famed techniques of his game — all the techniques he’s used to win his 5 – Mundial, 6 – Pan American, 5 – European and multiple ADCC Championship titles.  The Seminar will start at 12:30.

* This event is white Gi only.

** Only for the Gym Members

After submitting your application during some days you will receive confirmation email, where you will find a graduation statement for which there are three possibilities:
1. The student will not graduate (your presence still requested).
– Master & Intr. decision not to be questionable, we have to ensure the quality of training at high standers and a respectful environment on our dojo.
2. The student will certainly graduate to rank XY (belt or stripes).
3. The student will graduate to rank XY (belt or stripes) if he perceivable improves in certain points.
– These points usually consist of techniques in certain positions (such as Guard Passes, Sweeps, etc.)
but may very well be about dojo-etiquette and behaviour on the mats.
