Demian Maia Seminar at The Arena Was A Huge Success

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who attended the Demain Maia seminar at The Arena Saturday Dec. 11th. The seminar was a huge success, with over 50 people attending. Special thanks to our great friend and partner Xande Ribeiro for his assistance as Demian’s partner during the seminar. Also thanks to our guest “stars” students Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos and TUF alum Nam Phan for attending. It was great to have athletes of their caliber training alongside everyone else.

Besides the great hands on training, The Arena was also part of a historic moment in martial arts. In partnership with TheArena.TV ( we streamed the world’s first free Interactive Martial Arts Seminar, staring Demian Maia, Xande, and the students who all attended. Although we had some technical difficulities (thousands of people tried to simultaneously log in which jammed the server up for a little while), it went well overall. Look for at least 5 more of these types of streaming seminars in 2011 with world famous athletes hosting at The Arena ( as we continue to bring you the best instruction in MMA, Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, and Wrestling.
