This camp will take place in Leuven from the 8th of July until the 13th of 2019.
We have 5 hours of technique and 3 hours of open mat a day, all no-gi classes. All experience levels and affiliations are welcome.
Aaron Milam started his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu career training under Carlson Gracie legend Reye Diogo in 2000.
Five years later he moved to New York and started training at Renzo Gracie's with John Danaher, under whom he was given his black belt in 2008.
During this period, Aaron was described as the most diverse and creative black belt under John Danaher at the time.
Since 8 years he owns his own gym, Renzo Gracie Portland.
At 17 years old, Calestine started practising Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Renzo Gracie Fight Academy.
After a highly successful career in the coloured belts, particularly as a brown belt when Jon conquered every major tournament in the submission-only US circuit, Calestine was promoted to black belt in 2017 by Daisuke Yamaji.
An important person in his development was Eddie Cummings, who was one of the regular teachers of Jonathan.
When Eddie Cummings fell out of EBI 15 with the flu, Jonathan Calestine stepped up with less than 24 hours notice.
He won his first 3 fights by leglock in record time and in the final he defeated Geo Martinez by overtime, winning EBI 15.
He also went on to beat Gianni Grippo at Kasai Pro 3 and will undoubtedly be a name we'll hear much more about in the future.
Leuven is a small city, so you can do it on foot. We also offer a bike rental service on the Facebook camp page a couple of weeks before the camp. Keep an eye out for this!
Leuven, being both a trading centre in the Middle Ages and having a world-renowned university since 1425, has always been a wealthy city. Which you can see in its beautiful buildings.
Apart from that, it also has one of the biggest breweries in the world and beer is and always has been a part of the Leuven culture.
Combine that with a lot of university students and you have a vibrant city with parties every night.
