Blue Line BJJ at Police Week 2019!
Blue Line BJJ is proud to announce a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu seminar like no other be held during this year’s Police Week! The seminar will be a truly unique experience taught by four highly accomplished law enforcement professionals (who also happen to be Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts) taking turns showing their favorite jiu-jitsu techniques. Not only are the instructors LEO, but admission will be limited to those working in the law enforcement profession – cops, deputies, troopers, corrections, special agents (federal), military police, and probation/parole agents included! Imagine an entire room filled with law enforcement professionals in a gi training at the same time at the same place. You will not want to miss this opportunity!
Date/Time:The seminar will be Monday, May 13, 2019 starting at noon. Onsite check-in will open approximately an hour beforehand. Each instructor will have an hour to go through the techniques they have chosen to share with the group. At 4pm we’ll take a group photo and follow that up with an open mat for attendees to share some friendly rolls and get to network with guys/gals from all across the country!
Location: The Pedro Sauer Association has graciously offered their facility in Herndon, VA. For those in Washington DC for police week that is approximately a 30 minute drive from Tent City. The physical address is 360 Herndon Pkwy #100, Herndon, VA 20170. Further information can be found at bluelinebjj.com/policeweek2019location.
Cost: For those who are white, blue, purple or brown belt, the cost for the seminar is $120. That includes the 4-hours of instruction, open mat, and a digital copy of the group photo. In addition, each person in attendance will receive a custom designed t-shirt, a complete Blue Line BJJ patch set (three in a set), and two Blue Line BJJ stickers. For any LEO black belts, we have a special discount code available. All black belts are encouraged to reach out to Blue Line BJJ for details. All this makes for a tremendous value. Even better – profits from the seminar will be given to charity!
Instructors:We have secured three of our four instructors for the seminar. The final instructor will be selected in the coming days. To add a little suspense (and because our marketing people said it was a good idea) we will be announcing one instructor each week with a featured written article. Our first instructor will be announced this Monday, February 25, 2019! The instructor list can be found at bluelinebjj.com/instructors.
Rules:Attendees must have a gi and must present a photo ID at the door to prove their employment in law enforcement. Retirees without a photo ID should reach out to Blue Line BJJ prior to registration to verify past employment. All registrations must be completed online in advance of the event. No spectators will be allowed. Further rules can be found at bluelinebjj.com/policeweek2019rules.

We strongly encourage those who attend to bring department patches, challenge coins, or other miscellaneous tokens to trade or give out during the seminar. We anticipate having LEO from all across the country in attendance.
There may be an opportunity for those who want to stay past 7pm to train with Master Pedro Sauer during one of their regularly scheduled classes. Further details regarding that opportunity will be posted as we get closer to the event.
The journey to the Police Week 2019 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu seminar will be shared in a daily video blog put together by Blue Line BJJ admin Bill Krieg. For those who aren’t familiar with him, Bill is a first-degree black belt from Team Vaghi and is an operations lieutenant in Appleton, WI. He started training jiu-jitsu in 1997 and earned his black belt in 2013. He’ll be driving to Washington DC from Appleton, WI (894 miles) and stopping to train with small groups of LEO along the way. At each stop, and then eventually the seminar itself, he will be recording and sharing his experiences on Facebook.
