A highly recognised and respected name in the grappling world Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Dustin ‘Clean’ Denes is currently on a UK seminar tour sharing his knowledge and experience with members of BJJ clubs up and down the country.
Denes has a list of achievements to his name including Brazilian National Champion in 2000 and 2 times Liga de Niteroi Champion to name but a few. His nickname ‘Clean’ has nothing to do with his grappling technique but was handed to him by Mercelo ‘Brutus’ Silveira for his clean shaven head which resembled ‘Mr Clean’ from the cleaning brand!
Denes stopped by Bad Boy Training Centre last Friday to teach our members a thing or two.
What was initially scheduled as a 2.5 hour seminar turned into massive 5 hours of intense drills with submission and pinning techniques being the focus. Denes has a reputation for intensity which the attendees will now confirm is not exaggerated. During the session he remarked:
You don’t attend a ‘Clean’ seminar, you survive it!”
Someone threw up, someone fainted and someone’s nose started bleeding spontaneously, all from the pressure of the drills. Head Coach Pete Irving said:
“Dustin’s relentless attention to detail and energy was inspirational.
His passion for jiu-jitsu and sincere interest in every person that made the effort to attend was exciting to be around.”
The Seminar was the first Bad Boy Training Centre has held since it’s opening in October 2013 and was a roaring success. Dustin is scheduled to come back to the UK in Autumn and the BBTC hope to repeat the event if his busy schedule allows.
