    Bio
    Mauricio Milani "Shogun" Rua (born November 25, 1981[4] in Curitiba, Brazil) is a mixed martial arts fighter, and the winner of the PRIDE Fighting Championships' 2005 Middleweight (205lb) Grand Prix. He holds notable wins over Ricardo Arona, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Quinton Jackson, Kevin Randleman, Alistair Overeem, and Kazuhiro Nakamura and is known for his aggressive fighting style and excellent versatility.

    Rua began training martial arts with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the age of six and Muay Thai at seven, at which he became 10-0.[9] He was very successful in BJJ championships at the Blue and Purple belt level. Rua followed his older brothers' footsteps after Murilo started training in Muay Thai with the Chute Boxe Academy. In addition to Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he also currently trains in wrestling and western boxing.[10][11]

    lucky! I saw a seminar that he did alongside ninja and it was pretty good. From what I hear they pretty much cover the shit that they did on the secrets of chute boxe video. I posted it before so you should check it out before you go to the seminar so you get the most out of the stuff they are gonna teach you.
