A few select members of the Team Torres BJJ team were honoured to get the opportunity to train with current and five time BJJ World Champion Lucas Lepri whilst he was visiting Ireland recently.

Lucas is one of the very few to have won all four majors at adult level black belt: the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship, Pan American Championships, the European Championship and the Brazilian National Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

He has also won the Nogi World Jiu-Jitsu Championship and the Nogi Pan American Championships multiple times in the lightweight division.

During the session Lucas shared some of his secrets and the finer details of his winning techniques which the team hope to put to good use as they prepare for the forthcoming GrapplePalooza NoGi Grappling event in Dublin later this month.
