  • 100% of the merchandise sales goes to Live Jiu-Jitsu


Live Jiu-Jitsu aims to inspire positive change in the lives of impoverished communities through the study and implementation of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Through the use of this “gentle art,” we plan to provide an enriching learning environment through programs lead by top-class instructors. We provide opportunities for students to embrace the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu while enhancing their livelihood. Through financial support and donations, we create hope, ultimately creating champions not only in competition, but champions in life.

Meet our Ambassador Marcio Andre:

Marcio André is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Fábio Andrade who is regarded as one of the top athletes of his generation in the sport. A great story of success through jiu jitsu, Marcio André almost succumbed to the grooming of criminality, but managed to overcome this through Andrade and his work with underprivileged kids. Today André  is the prime representative of the Família Bangu Jiu Jitsu, a small and humble affiliate academy of the Nova Uniao team that has brought to Jiu Jitsu a sizeable number of top of the line competitors during the 2010 decade.
