We are asking for a minimum of a $5.00 donation to get on the mats. Every cent raised will go to help the people who have lost everything in these storms. Help us in raising money for those in need, and get some great training in, with some great people at the same time. Thanks to everyone in advance for your support.

On July 14, 2013 EIGHT-TIME Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion and 4th Degree Black Belt, Robson Moura was at Henry BJJ conducting a seminar and a portion made on to the Jiu-Jitsu Magazine website. Here is the link to the November 2013 Issue of Jiu Jitsu Magazine.
Henry Brazilian Jiu Jitsu- Team RMNU is excited to announce that Prof. Robson Moura will be joined by his 2nd American Black Belt Prof. Jeff Mitchell when he returns to Central Illinois in December. Prof. Mitchell will be teaching class at Henry BJJ on Thursday Dec. 5th from 6:00 to 7:30pm. The cost will be $25.00 CASH ONLY at the door, or local people can pay in advance at Henry BJJ. Prof. Mitchell has an amazing knowledge of BJJ, and is a great teacher and person. Do not miss your chance to train with one of RMNU’s best.
I have just recently returned from the 2nd Annual Robson Moura-Nova Uniao Association Team Camp in Tampa, FL and I wanted to share some of my thoughts with everyone. Now, this blog will not be about the amazing techniques that were shown, how much talent was on the mats during training sessions, or even about all the really cool people I met while there. Instead I am going to focus on an aspect of RMNU that most people overlook, and even take for granted. That aspect of our team is loyalty. Now most of us have a certain about of pride about being part of RMNU and view ourselves as loyal members, but what I am going to share with you about the guys who came to teach at the camp will open your eyes and make you rethink how loyal you are, and how far loyalty really goes.
I will start with Prof. Andre Ushirobira. Prof. Andre traveled from Brazil to be at the camp, and has been here in the United States for over a month. To many of us this sounds like a typical long BJJ vacation. What most did not know is that Prof. Andre has a new born daughter at home (2 months old). We talked briefly about her, and he said how it broke his heart to see her on video chats, and how he missed her greatly. Now know Prof. Andre did not want to leave his daughter to come on a BJJ vacation, but instead came because Prof. Robson Moura asked him to be here. Andre is one of, if not the first, person to receive a black belt from Prof. Moura, and he wears that belt with great pride. I truly believe that if Prof. Moura asked Andre to run through a wall for RMNU, his only question would be “Which one?”
Henry Brazilian Jiu Jitsu-Team RMNU is excited to announce the return of the amazing Robson Moura for another one of his great seminars. The seminar will be on Saturday Dec. 7th, from 11am to 1pm, with promotions to follow. The cost is $80.00 paid in advance through the RMNU store at robsonmoura.com, or $95.00 CASH ONLY at the door if space is available (there are no exceptions to this). The seminar is limited to 50 people. Please contact Bill Henry through this page, or at 309-287-2004 with questions.
Please make sure that you have RMNU Gis or PATCHES on your Gi as a way to show your support for the association. Contact Bill before you buy your items on-line, as he can first check with Doug Kimball to see if your item is in town. This will save you shipping fees if Doug has the item at his storage facility, which is a nice way of saying “his house”.
