Grand Master Flavio Behring 10th Anniversary Seminar!

Absolute Mixed Martial Arts and Grand Master Flavio Behring will be holding a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar in honor of their 10 year affiliation.

flavio 10 year

Professor Rob Handley started his school Absolute Mixed Martial Arts, in 2002 as a brown belt. The gym originated in West Valley, Utah with about 6 students in a garage that took a lot of hard work to make usable. The majority of his students had little to no experience in martial arts. Professor Handley’s experience, knowledge and teaching methodology allowed his students to progress quickly. In just one year, he produced a U.S. Open Jiu Jitsu champion and a Pan Am Jiu Jitsu champion.

It was during this first year that Professor Handley began bringing Grand Master (GM) Flavio Behring to his school to share in the knowledge and experience of this well respected Master. GM Flavio, seeing Professor Handley’s character as an individual and skill as teacher, appointed Professor Handley as the Head Coach of Behring USA. Behring USA has grown from one school in Utah to multiple schools in California, Montana and Arizona as well as Utah. Throughout the entire time, Professor Handley has continued to bring GM Flavio out for seminars once or twice a year to allow his students to learn and grow with one of the world’s leading Jiu Jitsu Masters.

The seminar, to be held on January 25th and 26th, will be hosted at Absolute MMA (1338 W. 7800 S.) and given by Grand Master Flavio, a 9th degree red belt. He will be sharing his 65 years of Jiu Jitsu experience with the attendees. He will be demonstrating Jiu Jitsu for self defense, sport and mixed martial art application. With over 6 decades of teaching, training and a career in no-holds-barred fighting, GM Flavio is supremely qualified to instruct people from beginners to expert.

Master Flavio interview on Fox 13 News


We were privileged to have Master Flavio with us this weekend for a Jiu Jitsu seminar. Here is a clip of the spot he had on Fox 13 News, Saturday morning. Thank you to all who came out and supported us. Sixty seven participants came to the seminar at Absolute MMA! It was fantastic to have all of us in one room.

Jiu-jitsu class 12/21/10

Glad to see the participation last night. If you are a blue belt or higher, expect to do the self defense shark tank drill when Grand Master Flavio gets here in January. Practice now and practice smart. If you aren’t a blue belt yet, practice now so you will be prepared. You never know who he is going to ask for a demonstration…

Grand Master Flavio Behring returns

Grand Master Flavio Behring returns to Utah. He will be teaching a 4 hr. seminar on Saturday June 13th from 10-2pm and a 3 hr. special class on Friday June 12th from 6-9 pm for everyone who pre-registers by May 31st.

Grand Master Flavio Behring began training Gracie Jiu Jitsu in 1947 at the hands of Helio Gracie and Joao Alberto Barreto. This year marks his 62nd anniversary of being on the Jiu Jitsu mat. His time in the Gracie Academy during the 1950’s has been called “the golden era” of Jiu Jitsu. Many of today’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lineage can be traced back to these fine teachers and athletes of this time in Jiu Jitsu’s modern history.

Part of Grand Master Flavio’s new seminar series is the history of each technique in its relation to grappling while standing and its use in ground frighting. He is inspired to educate his students in the long and glorious history of Gracie Jiu Jitsu as he has seen its growth from infancy during the 1950’s in the first Gracie Academy.
