    I'd do both days, but saturday is one of my BJJ instructor's wedding. I can't come up with an excuse to miss the wedding because he would see right through it since he knows about the seminar.

    Just got back from the seminar. It was a great intro to X-guard, with some setups ups from butterfly guard. I see this fitting right into my game. I got to meet Marcelo and Jeff Monson and got my picture taken with both. I also got to see my coach get tapped by Marcelo, which was a treat in and of itself.

    Who else went?

    I went but I was there on the no gi day on Saturday. Marcelo went through standing guard passes with variations from counters. Also, showed a couple of guillotines from that position. I'm a little disappointed to hear he showed X guard because I've been starting to work on that. I got to talk with him a little before the seminar and got my pic with him of course. Monson wasn't there that day though. It was my first seminar and would go again if he comes back.
