Hard to say.

The Mark Walder/ Royce gracie one was fantastic. I learned ALOT, and had a great time.

But possibly the most important ones ive done are the John Kavanagh ones as they had a very significant change in my "game".

Roy Harris was certainly the best seminar by miles, his teaching methods were tops, his philosophy spot on and his stories were cracking. Had a private too and that was well worth it.

Royce was good but Roys openess and teaching methods put him ahead.

Roy should be back soon too........................

August Wallen by far. An amazing fighter and great teacher. I've never learnt so much useful technique.

Also enjoyed Matt Thornton a lot.

My fav seminar was one by Mauricio Gomes at RM Condor (45 Commando base), about 3 years ago.

There was me and 4 mates, about 20 marines with their instructor, and Mauricio. Anyway, what a day, the marines were new to grappling so we essentially had Mauricio to ourselves and had loads of rolls with him, as well as talking with him in the canteen at lunch break.

The sparring was a great work out because the marines were strong and keen, and we all went home f*cked.

I liked Carlson Gracie Junior one best, I remember more techniques from it that could easily be used.

Jean Silva always teaches us cool stuff when he comes to train, flying armbars/triangles, cartwheel guard passes and some decent throws, suplex, takedowns etc.

Obviously my weekly training is more important, seminars are good but I tend to only really remember a few techniques very well from each which I add to the BJJ part of my brain for future use.

To be honest, as far as bucket loads of good drills/techniques and training tips go, you can't beat Eric Paulson.

For learning a million moves, remembering 5 and regularly using 1 you cant beat erik paulson :)

Hes a cool dude though.

I prefer having a dude work on aspects of my game it seems like its the small adjustments to techniques that make me better.
