On March 30th, Instructor Roberto Fleischmann taught a special class to a select group of US troops stationed in Guatemala. The men, stationed in an American Base in Guatemala, were all extremely pleased with the hand to hand training. One of the participants described the class as, “Outstanding and realistic training.” He continued saying that, “Jiu-Jitsu is an indispensable weapon on our CQC arsenal.” Roberto focused on self-defense and weapon defense techniques and was also very happy with the opportunity, “The class went extremely well and I was honored to contribute with the training of United States soldiers.”
