Xande and Rani ready!

ADCC 2007 Champions Xande Ribeiro and Rani Yahia completed the final stages of preparation for their campaign in ADCC 2009. The training sessions with Ginástica Natural’s Professor Alvaro Romano involved breathing and mental preparation techniques developed by the professor for fighters.

“The breathing techniques, mental training and motivational training are part of the program. The program includes these techniques along with Ginastica Natural and has been applied with many top athletes with great success, most recently Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira. Minotauro was first introduced to this type of training during his preparation to fight Randy Couture in UFC. Currently Rani and Xande are in the final stages of a similar program as they prepare for ADCC this upcoming weekend in Barcelona”, stated Romano.
