“I’ve been seeing blue and purple belts who think Jiu-Jitsu’s all about grabbing a sleeve and trying some little sweeps. That’s awful for the sport, but what can you do about it? No one can control that.”
“Hoje vejo faixas-azuis e roxas com a visão de que Jiu-Jitsu é pegar na manga e tentar raspadinhas. Isso é ruim para o esporte, mas o que se pode fazer? Ninguém pode controlar isso”

Sign Your Kids up for Jiu-Jitsu in 2013, and They Shall Never Be Alone
How about adding “give Jiu-Jitsu a chance” to your New Year’s resolutions?

C’mon, try it out. At a good gentle-art school, your kids learn how to defend themselves, and by year’s end they’ve learned so much more than that.

They’ve learned such concepts as loyalty, discipline, dedication, respect and honor. Precepts for making them better people—and they learn to defend themselves when their parents and protectors aren’t around to boot.
with Jiu-Jitsu your kids will never be alone again.
