Live Jiu-Jitsu (501 (c) (3) 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 support Social Projects in Brazil and the United States through financial support and donations, we create hope, ultimately creating champions not only in competition, but champions in life, and YOU can be help this process.

Live Jiu-Jitsu sponsored around 30 athletes from four different projects to compete at the 2018 IBJJF/CBJJ Brazilian Nationals on April 28th & 29th. Now our next challenge is to sponsor 100 kids, from 10 different social projects, to compete at the 2018 IBJJF/CBJJ South American Championship in Rio de janeiro, Brazil on July 21st and you can help them to experience this event.


Why sponsor tournament registration fees?
If you have competed before in any sport you understand how competition is an amazing personal development tool, and is not different in jiu-jitsu. These kids and young athletes get to learn how to deal with wins and losses, how to handle their emotions in under pressured situations, and the experience of visiting new cities, states and even countries is priceless! The experience can open their eyes to different realities and the World is a lot bigger than the reality that they live in, which inspires them to want more in life.

You can help us to raise around $4500 that will be enough to pay for their registration and the CBJJ ID’s. You buy a Live Jiu-Jitsu patch for $20 and receive a The BJJ Mental Coach T-shirt for FREE ($20 value) for your donation.*Until supplies last
