With a little help from their friends

I may have used this title before, but it seems appropriate for this post and creating headlines has never been my strong suit.

Be that as it may, Team Lloyd Irvin of Camp Springs continues to take advantage of its connections within the world of mixed martial arts and bring people in from the world over to give the academy's students the best experience possible.

Team Lloyd Irvin held a seminar this weekend featuring the Mendes brothers, who each appear to be multiple champions in the world of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. According to the accompanying video, the brothers are only 20 years old, which makes their accomplishments even more astounding. When I was 20 years old I was struggling to stay in college while these guys were winning tournaments worldwide.

If you want to check out a video of the brothers training, you can find one here.

Team Lloyd Irvin also held a "ladies only" seminar recently with Kyra Gracie, a member of the legendary Gracie family whose other members like Royce and Renzo played a pivotal role in mixed martial arts as we know it in the United States.

I'm not surprised that Lloyd Irvin is able to bring in these prominent names to teach their students. Lloyd's team has helped train fighters in both the UFC and WEC and most recently members of Team Lloyd Irvin could be found in the corner of Kris "Savage" McCray, who lost to Court McGee in the finals of UFC's "The Ultimate Fighter" last weekend.
